-  According to ads in the New York clipper, Karina was a "French chanteuse eccentrique" and "creatrice of the 'Valse Deshabille.'" She performed specialty acts, songs, and dances, and was accepting engagements with "first class vaudeville or burlesque managers" (6/8/01, p. 332; 12/12/03, p. 1006). In his history of The American burlesque show, I. Zeidman refers to a featured dancer named Karina who performed with Sam T. Jack's Tenderloin Company (a burlesque troupe) (1967, p. 41).
