Vallerina Estrella was 19 years old at the time of these pictures. She had been dancing professionally for a year. Although she was born in Mexico, her family moved to Las Vegas when she was a toddler. She grew up here and considered herself a Las Vegas native.
Her beauty is downright heart-stopping. She is not at all jaded–her feelings show through as she performs, and she can go in an instant from little-girl shy to a tiger.
She laughs easily, and has a smile that lights up a room.
Following her photo shoot, I got a chance to talk to her about her life, her plans, and her feelings about dancing.
Q: What attracted you to dancing?
I was a cheerleader in high school and also on the dance team. I always loved dancing. It makes me feel sexual. It makes me feel … I guess the word is empowered.
Q: What was it like the first time you danced on stage topless or nude?
It was amateur night at the club. I was 18 years old.
Q: Were you scared or nervous about taking your clothes off?
No, not at all. It just felt crazy and adventurous and I’d wanted to do it for some time.
Q: How do you feel about stage dancing vs. lap dancing and VIP room shows?
I have to admit I like doing private shows more. I like dancing on stage, but it’s just a tease. Private shows are more personal and more sexual. What I like most about dancing is getting naked and sexy.
Q: What’s your favorite music for dancing?
Iggy Azalea, Eminem, Jhené Aiko, and mostly R&B.
Q: What do you do on your time off?
I’m a full-time student. I’m just starting college. I’m studying philosophy right now, but I plan to go into law. I want to be a lawyer.
Q: Why philosophy? Why law?
I like reading.
Q: Do you have a favorite philosopher?
Not yet. But I love reading novels. I especially love Fitzgerald’s Great Gatsby.
Q: What would you most like your audience to know about you?
That I’m sweet, cute, and just like the girl next door … but very sexual.
