Award-winning burlesque dancer Kitten de Ville is also one of the women credited with the burlesque dancing revival. We could all learn a thing or two from this talented burlesque dancer…
Kitten de Ville
LA burlesque dancer, Kitten de Ville is also known as ‘the embodiment of burlesque’. She began her burlesque career in 1994 as part of The Velvet Hammer burlesque troupe. Their sold out burlesque shows signalled the beginning of neo-burlesque.
The return to a variety show style with glamour galore in burlesquee acts like their Geisha girls, The Velvet Hammer went down in history.
Then in 2002 Kitten de Ville really made her name a solo star. She won the coveted Miss Exotic World competition in the Tournament of Tease at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend.
She has gone on to star in music videos, movies and modelling for the likes of Jean-Paul Gaultier. With her captivating stage presence and platinum tousled locks, it’s no wonder she’s in demand.
