April March - The First Lady of Burlesque - signed 8x10 photo
April was born Velma Fern Worden in Oklahoma City, OK in 1935. Due to her parents divorcing when she was a toddler, April was primarily raised by her grandparents. With sights on a film a career, April began dance and acrobatic lessons at a young age. However, while working as a cigarette girl in a nightclub, she was ‘discovered’ by Barney Weinstein who offered her the chance to come to Dallas and dance in burlesque. April was billed as “The First Lady of Burlesque” in part because of her striking resemblance to Jackie Kennedy, but also for her signature class and grace.
