Starry’s beginning was a humble existence in the South. Being raised in the Bible Belt meant that Starry had to squelch her passions and desires for excitement and wild abandon. In early years, Starry heeded the constraints of her Southern upbringing. But, in later life, she was swept off her feet by her soul mate who possessed creative genius and talents which paved the way for her to openly express her desires. She entered into the world of Burlesque and quickly learned how to sparkle with the help of mentors at Salome Cabaret. The award-winning Salome Cabaret cast coached Starry and helped her take her place on the stage…any stage!
Starry's evolution has begun! She was a student of Salome Cabaret’s Burlesque Academy (Beginner & Advanced) in 2012 and started performing immediately after graduation. Starry is a featured performer with Salome Cabaret and has performed on many stages in the Knoxville, TN area, sharing the stage with Burlesque greats and legends, along with her fellow troupe members. She has workshopped and learned from some of Burlesque's brightest talents including The Stage Door Johnnies, Lola Le Soleil, Pearle Noire, Paco Fish, Penny Starr, Jr., Deanna Danger and Ruby Joule. Starry introduced "Polesque" to Tennessee’s burlesque community in August, 2013 and made her festival debut at The Alabama Burlesque Festival in October, 2013. Starry has brought new acts to the stage in 2014, including performances at Southern Fried Burlesque Festival and Purrrlesque Follies. Starry also competed at Heavy Rebel Weekender (Queen competition) and BurlyPicks (TN Regional Title).
From here, Starry continues to shoot for the stars!
