Dirty Martini Burlesque
She’s revered throughout the community as an innovator, inspiration and all-out example of old-school Hollywood Glamour.
Miss Dirty Martini is known for incorporating and flipping traditional burlesque styles like the fan dance, balloon pop and shadow stripping. This has gained her a reputation as an innovator of the genre.
Her blonde bombshell look has also got attention as a 50s-style pinup. This includes posing for high end fashion brand Chanel. Plus, the photographer was Chanel creative director, Karl Lagerfeld no less.
She’s also in the mainstream thanks to her appearance in Mathieu Amalric’s 2010 Cannes award winning film Tournee alongside Julie Atlas Muz and Kitten on the Keys.
Her acclaim in the burlesque dancing community has won her the top spot in 21st Century Burlesque’s Top 50 every year since it began in 2009. The people have spoken.
In 2004 Miss Dirty Martini won Miss Exotic World at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend in Las Vegas. Then 21st Century Burlesque voted her the number one burlesque dancer in the world. She hit the top spot in 2009, 2010, 2011 AND 2012. Every year!
Dirty Martini is one of the most beloved burlesque dancers in the world. She’s a sought after teacher, brilliant speaker and professionally trained dancer. Dirty Martini’s voluptuous figure has become an icon of the genre. For that we salute her!
