Hold on to your monocle and clutch your pearls, Bitch Sassidy is a take-no-prisoners, no holds barred performer. Provocative, powerful, and ready to pounce, Bitch first strutted across the burlesque stage on Canada’s wet West coast in Vancouver, BC. A trained belly-dancer and award-winning actress, she began her burlesque journey at Torlage Cabaret, and the School of Tease. She took a big bite into the Vancouver burlesque scene, sharing the stage with Bone Rattle Talent, Geekenders, Drag King, Adam Zapple, and at Kitty Nights before riding back into her hometown Calgary.
Welcomed into the thriving Calgary artist community, Bitch joined neo-burlesque troupe, Peppurrmint Parlour. She has proudly performed with Le Cirque de la Nuit, BassBus, Circle Carnival, Burlesque Burn, Burlesque Brunch, Naked Girls Reading, Grapes & Grains Prohibition Festival, House of Hush, Play the Fool Festival, Late Night at the Plaza, Plain Jane Events, Burlesque in the Basement, The Rhinestone Affair, A Midnight in Paris Gala, The Calgary International Burlesque Festival, the Edmonton Burlesque Festival, Tattoo shows in Calgary, Lethbridge, and Vancouver, the Taboo Naught but Nice Sex Show in Calgary, Vancouver, and Red Deer, as well as hosting ScreamFest, HorrorCon, and NSFCon. And if you find yourself in Black Rock City you may even catch one of her infamously raw performances in the dust.
Bitch Sassidy is currently working as an actor, burlesque artist, teacher, and model. She is a founder and producer of Cabaret Calgary, parent to The Restricted Section, GoGo Battles, Crème, and Banff's Cougar Cabaret. She teaches dance, presence, character development, and choreography in workshop and one-on-one settings.
