She's small and out of your price range: Minnie Barre!

I’ve been studying burlesque since 2008 and performing for almost as long, though showgirling has been my clear fate since age 6, when I cried into a pile of feather boas at Chicago’s Fantasy Costumes. THEY WERE JUST SO BEAUTIFUL!

My life is still full of feathers and glitter and sequins and so. much. pastie tape. as I prance my pint-sized self across Chicagoland stages as an ensemble member and the production manager of Crescent Moon Nerdlesque, a company member with Bim Bam Boom Burlesque, a former coquette at the fallen Kiss Kiss Cabaret (RIP), as well as a guest performer with PS…Burlesque, Plan 9 Burlesque, Beast Women, and Harlequin Girls.

My menu of acts is listed on this page, and you can see all my upcoming performances on the Calendar page.

Enjoy ;)

A 50s Barbie doll comes to life and embraces her inner party girl. Layers of A-line skirts, lots of pink, and cute 50s-inspired choreo.
