Award-winning international burlesque delight,

is an ecstatic, exuberant shimmy-shaker extraordinaire.

Kellita comes from a long line of sassy dancers:

her Spanish grandmother routinely danced flamenco on tabletops while her Lebanese aunt entertained vaudeville audiences with her signature hula striptease dance.  Kellita continues the tradition of interpreting world dance through a showgirl lens, travelling far and wide, leaving glitter and grins in her wake.  

She is a 5-time finalist at the Burlesque Hall of Fame, 3-time burlesque festival headliner, and Queen of Carnaval San Francisco, 2008. Some performing and teaching highlights include: Tease-O-Rama, Margaret Cho's Sensuous Woman Show, The VaVa Voom Room,  NY Burlesque Festival, New Orleans Burlesque Festival, Montreal Burlesque Festival, Vancouver International Burlesque Festival, St. Louis Show Me Burlesque Festival, Moisture Festival, BurlyCon, America's Got Talent.  Kellita has headlined burlesque festivals in Chicago, Austin, Toronto and Osaka.

She is the founder both Hot Pink Feathers Dance Company and Showgirl Awakening,

her innovative dance and life practice. Named Little Miss Aftershock for her outstanding shimmy shake at the Miss Exotic World pageant 2002 (a title she shares with Miss Exotic World 2011 Miss Indigo Blue), Kellita is also the proud owner of 2 Golden Pastie Awards from the New York Burlesque Festival: Best Derriere 2004 (which she shares with Mr. Exotic World 2010 The Evil Hate Monkey) and Most Sensual 2009 (which she shares with Peekaboo Pointe).

She loves spreading her joy, light and passion through burlesque performance and awakening showgirls worldwide.  She has awakened hundreds of showgirls, & won’t stop until everyone who wishes to, discovers and reveals their true radiant essence.
