Returning veteran performer since 2009

Hailing from Denver, Colorado, Cherry started singing at the ripe old age of three. She was in front of audiences by age four.  It was while studying theatre arts at the University of San Diego that she was first introduced to burlesque. A Hell on Heels veteran circa 2009/2010, Cherry is thrilled to rejoin the troupe after moving back to San Diego from Oahu, Hawaii. While away, she graced the burlesque stages of Seattle and Honolulu, but, as Dorothy says, “There’s no place like home!”

“In a society that constantly tells women they are not good enough, it is so vital to keep the art of burlesque alive, an art that celebrates the female form no matter its shape or size!”
