Putting the motion in "promotion" is all in a day's work for the staff of Femme Fatale-50 San Diego women who provide rent-ertainment: for-hire dancing (go-go, choreographed and otherwise), modeling and acting services.
Who would hire women to dance well in sexy outfits? Lotsa folks, it turns out.
"My brand ambassadors work at Hard Rock, Stingaree and Bar West, and I provide models and dancers for Dreamcatcher at Viejas Casino and a lot of conventions," says Alexa Torres, the former (and still) go-go girl at the helm of Femme Fatale. "We also do photo shoots for liquor companies, anniversary parties for big law firms...we've even done weddings."
Torres, a San Diego native, says her three-year-old business is thriving because her performers offer more than just a pretty face (and being able to pull off a naughty Santa getup).
"Professional representation of not just my company, but of my clients, is paramount," she says. "I hire based on one's ability to stay in healthy, athletic shape, maintain a friendly attitude and uphold high personal standards."
How does Mom feel about it?
"She networks for me, gives out my card and promotes my site everywhere she goes," Torres says. "She's my best friend-and she is so proud."
