Lynn and Jimmy - Owners
Lynn participated in shows, musicals, and competitions from age three through high school, studying dance, voice, violin, and artistic roller skating. In 2002, Lynn 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 on dance 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.
Lynn immersed herself in the local arts scene, forming working relationships with body painters, ceramists, musicians, and art show coordinators. In 2009, she decided to open an adult dance studio after noticing a lack of options in the area. Lynn hopes to educate the public about the vintage dance styles that are widely forgotten in today’s society. They can be fun on a social or professional level. She has formed several local clubs and some of them have over 250 participants. They include the Oklahoma Pin-Up Girls, Oklahoma Burlesque Revue, and Oklahoma Swing Dance Society.
A few months after Teaze Dance opened, Lynn founded the Oklahoma Showgirls entertainment company. While her peers were donating dance performances all over the state, Lynn was passionate about carving out a niche for professional entertainment at a fair wage to her hired entertainers and comparable to other large cities. This was unheard of in our city and our generation. Today, her showgirls have been featured in movies, commercials, music videos, and many live performances. They 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 40 dance styles and hundreds of costumes. With Lynn's passion and perseverance, she now has ten years of successful dance studio and professional entertainment company history.
Jimmy Dale is rooted in tradition by his grandfather Hubert Pearce, who is cousins with both Webb Pierce & The Wilburn Brothers. Hubert played honky tonks in the 40`s, 50`s, and 60`s in Oklahoma, Texas, and Louisiana. Jimmy’s father Melvin is an upright bass player and his passion for Hubert’s music turned into a record collecting and sales business. When Jimmy was growing up, he spent most of his time helping his dad with records and learned about a wide variety of now obscure music including honky tonk, delta and jump blues, roots rock n roll, jazz, hillbilly, western bop, mountain and bluegrass.
When Jimmy was just 16 years old, he began playing professionally all over Oklahoma and the surrounding states. Jimmy released his album “Heartaches and Honkytonks” in 2016 with a majority of his own 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. 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.” Jimmy played Viva Las Vegas in 2016 and 2018 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 music categories. Jimmy was nominated and won the award for “Best Rockabilly Male.” In August, Jimmy performed for Summer Jamboree festival in Italy and in September, he entertained for the High Rockabilly festival in Spain. He is also booked to perform at the 2020 Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender and the 2020 Ameripolitan Awards in Memphis. Jimmy Dale Richardson has created some of the most exciting music to emanate from the state of Oklahoma. With his gutsy lead vocals and solid electric guitar leads, Jimmy brings new life to the obscure art of traditional Honky Tonk, Rockabilly, and Hillbilly Bop. Over the last year, Jimmy has been working for era shows with jazz bands singing standards and adding a crooner vocal style to his talents. With Jimmy's music abilities coupled with Lynn's vintage era showgirl dance revues, this duo are set up to bring full on era shows to the masses around the world.
