Yana as Valkyrie

July 12, 2010

Look at this photo session we did with Yana Nirvana in October 1983, read what I wrote to accompany the layout!

“Who is this Valkyrie let out of a German mythology comic book? It’s Yana Nirvana doing her takeoff of a female bodybuilder.
Aerobic dancer, stand-up comic, health and fitness writer, bodybuilder … Ms. Nirvana is performing at GIO’S Cabaret in Los Angeles with the L.A. KNOCKERS, the outrageous all girls dance group.

  2. excerpt from “The Philosopher’s Daughter”

    Joan introduced me to Yana, a tall muscular Swedish-looking ballet student. Yana dropped her front tooth to make people laugh. Students were enthralled with this striking, five foot eleven, pack of dynamite. Her heritage was Danish with a splash of Mexican, she said. Her short red hair cut like a boy resembled David Bowie. She created her own wacky version of street dance and became one of my assistants.
