Lynn and Jimmy - Owners
Jimmy Richardson and Lynn Crowe-Richardson married in 2017 and they own and operate Teaze Dance & Fitness, Oklahoma’s original aerial arts and showgirl dance studio with a vintage pin-up theme. Lynn has owned and operated the studio since 2009 in historic Automobile Alley on Broadway Avenue downtown OKC. The business has been a mainstay long enough that nearly every storefront on the block was vacant for several years during its tenure. Today, the area has experienced an upturn and there are boutiques and very popular eateries surrounding the studio.
Lynn participated in shows, musicals, and competitions from age three through high school, studying dance, voice, violin, and artistic roller skating. In 2002, she began performing as a mermaid and a living statue among other characters with FoxMoon Productions and she worked with the company for over 15 years. She attended the University of Central Oklahoma as a dance education major and participated in dinner theaters and showcases throughout her college career. In 2005, she obtained a Bachelor of Science degree at UCO with an emphasis in dance education and business management.
Over the next two years, Lynn volunteered with a German themed cabaret dance company, Kabaret Falschtanz. In 2007, she co-founded her first dance company and made the group’s first showgirl costumes. Lyra’s Muse Dance Company hosted annual shows in tap, jazz, and ballet while showgirls offered a unique approach. Winter Follies was the name of one show during this time. She formed several local clubs and some of them had over 250 participants for which she and a team of friends organized monthly community events. They included Oklahoma Pin-Up Girls and Oklahoma Swing Dance Society.
Lynn completed Sharon Polsky's Pole Fitness Instructor Certification in 2009. She completed Fly Gym Aerial Fitness instructor program in 2015 and Altitude Fitness's Aerial Hammock Teacher Training program in 2015. Lynn has taken business and instructor courses during the Studio Owner Summit. The summit took place at the Miss Pole Dance America competition.
Lynn is also the owner of Oklahoma’s only vintage entertainment company, Oklahoma Showgirls. Her group has contracted with Osage Casinos and Kickapoo Casinos for over ten consecutive years among hundreds of other casinos and galas since 2009. The dancers were featured in several Osage Casino commercials as well as the film Yellow and the 2022 film Reagan. With Reagan, Lynn’s costumes and dancers were set as 1954 Last Frontier showgirls with Dennis Quaid as Ronald Reagan. While her peers were donating dance performances all over the state, Lynn was passionate about carving out a niche for professional entertainment. This passion included paying a fair wage to her hired entertainers in a format comparable to other large cities. This was unheard of in our city and our generation.
Today, Lynn’s showgirls have graced the game rooms of over 30 casinos in our area and a long list of gala events and corporate parties. From meet and greet gigs to full on revues with over 20 entertainers, choreography, and lavish costumes provided by Lynn for the entire show.
Her husband Jimmy is a professional musician and they work together to provide era talent from the 1800s to today. The entertainment company offers over 20 show themes, 40 dance styles, and hundreds of costumes. With Lynn's passion and perseverance, she now has decades of successful dance studio and professional entertainment company history.
Jimmy Dale Richardson is rooted in music tradition by his grandfather Hubert Pearce. Hubert played honky tonks in the 40s through 60s in Oklahoma, Texas, and Louisiana. Jimmy’s father Melvin is an upright bass player and Melvin’s passion for music turned into a record collecting and sales business. When Jimmy was growing up, he spent most of his time traveling to help his dad with selling records at antique shows. This experience gave Jimmy a lot of knowledge about antiques and textiles, while his favorite part of the experience was learning about a wide variety of obscure music. Honky tonk, delta and jump blues, roots rock n roll, jazz, western bop, mountain and bluegrass were all exciting to him and not something other kids in the 80s and 90s were studying.
Around age 13, Jimmy started strolling through the antique shows playing guitar and singing as well as entering local singing contests for Elvis’s music to get comfortable in front of people. When Jimmy was just 16, he began playing professionally all over Oklahoma and the surrounding states with his mentor Cliff Major, owner of C Major Guitars from Wichita. Jimmy played SXSW and toured with Nick Curran and "Smiley" Jake Erwin in the late 1990s. Melvin and Jimmy constructed an outdoor Route 66 performance venue on the property of an antique store called the Western Trail which garnered local news coverage and articles. For several years, they performed historic mountain music there every week in the mid-2000s.
Jimmy released his album Heartaches and Honkytonks with Wild Records in 2016 with a majority of original material, reaching Japan, Spain, and England with sales and radio play. In April 2016, the UK Rock n’ Roll Magazine published an article citing Jimmy’s story and his family heritage of musicians. He was featured in Blue Suede News magazine around 2017. Jimmy’s band was nominated for the Academy of Western Artists “Pure Country” award in four categories; Best Male Vocal, Best Duo/Group, Best CD/Album, and Best Song, all for his album Heartaches and Honkytonks. He played Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend in 2016, 2018, and 2021 with a great audience reception.
In 2019, Jimmy performed a showcase in Memphis for the Ameripolitan Awards Production. People from all over the world nominated various artists in roots music categories. Jimmy was nominated and won the award for “Best Rockabilly Male.” In August 2019, Jimmy performed for Summer Jamboree festival in Italy and in September, he entertained for High Rockabilly festival in Spain. After meeting Jim Heath at Ameripolitan Awards, Jimmy and Jim released the Dallas Barbershop Sessions in Dec 2019 on Fun Guy Records. The obscure rockabilly cover song recordings were preserved for decades and finally brought to light. They feature Jimmy on vocals and rhythm guitar, Nick Curran on lead guitar, and "Smiley" Jake Erwin on bass around 1998-2000. Legions of Nick Curran fans all over the world now have recordings of him that no one ever heard before or knew existed. The release took place ten years after Nick’s passing.
The next release from Jimmy’s partnership with Jim Heath and Fun Guy Records was made in 2021 with "58 Buick", an original song written by Jimmy with members of Reverend Horton Heat backing him on the recordings. Jimmy plays boogie-woogie piano in the song. The 45 also includes an updated version of “She’s Wild,” a rockabilly screamer that has proven popular at vintage festivals and car shows.
The record release was at historic Trees in Dallas, TX and The Jimbo’s Show was featured for the event, including Slim Jim Phantom of the Stray Cats with Jim Heath and Jimbo Wallace. Jimmy was thrilled to share the stage performing his original music with such amazing talent. Today, Jimmy’s music is played in over twenty countries on 150 radio stations around the world and has reached top 5 on the Alt Country Chart.
With original choreography, Lynn's troupe has performed the can-can for Glitter Ball and Oklahoma City Ballet’s Ballet Ball. The group has provided Vegas showgirls and aerialists for the Miss Oklahoma Pageant. They were 1940s dancers for Oklahoma City Orchestra League’s Maestro’s Ball while Jimmy crooned with The Savoy Trio band. The Oklahoma Historical Society has booked the team for roaring 20s, swing era 40s with tap dancers, and a rock and soul show for the swingin’ sixties event where Jimmy belted out a range from CCR to James Brown tunes.
New show concepts with Jimmy and Lynn’s team are now available and era themed from 1800s through 1990s. The most recent addition to Jimmy’s offerings is Route 66 Road Show, a carefully curated list of covers and originals designed to perfectly match the nostalgia of historic Route 66 for its upcoming Centennial celebrations.
Jimmy and Lynn were both featured in an article for Vintage Rock magazine in 2021. More original music in 2022 was recorded between Jimmy and Jim Heath including new honky tonk, songs with a Route 66 theme and a Roy Orbison flavor song that everyone is really excited to put forward. In 2023, Jimmy was booked as a headliner for Hemsby Rock n Roll Weekender in the UK. He has been booked several times to perform the Carl Perkins role for Presley Perkins Lewis & Cash shows in the US and Canada throughout 2023.
With Jimmy's music abilities coupled with Lynn's showgirl dance revues and a shared passion for historic art forms, this team is excited to bring their era shows to life around the world.
