“Nathan Burton: Comedy Magic”
Hometown: Shelton, Wash.
Started dancing at age 3 and participated in dance competitions throughout her school years. … Went to New York City (and saw her first Broadway shows) at 13 after being chosen to participate in a dance workshop. … Also competed in pageants, rode horses and did gymnastics as a kid, and chose dancing when her parents asked her to pick just one. … Moved to Las Vegas at 19 and landed her first show, the Rio’s “Show in the Sky,” within a month. … Las Vegas credits also include “Folies Bergere.” … Joined Nathan Burton’s show about six years ago; it’s her first magic show. … Recently passed her cosmetology exam. … She and Burton are engaged and plan to tie the knot sometime next year.
On transitioning from dancing to magic:
“To be honest, I was a little claustrophobic at first. That was a little hard to get over. But for the most part I loved it. … (Laughs) There have been times when I suppose I have had mini panic attacks, but not so much anymore.”
