Miss Chrissy Kiss is one of very first and currently the longest performing as well as the only full-time Estonian burlesque performer and producer. Her acts are a combination of old Hollywood extravaganza and dark mystic vibes - a curvy, bold and flirtatious souvenir to keep dashing through your mind.
Miss Kiss stumbled upon the burlesque world in 2011 spring, when she joined a burlesque class. After seeing her very first burlesque show 2 months later she fell in love with the art and started working towards becoming a performer. Her debut was in 2011 fall on her 18th birthday with a duet choreographed by Lady Daisy, performed alongside Malvina Rose.
Her very first solo act came to life in 2012 summer after being heavily influenced by seeing international superstars and participating in several workshops at Helsinki Burlesque Festival in the same year spring. She kept going to the festival until its very end to keep getting inspired and to learn from international professionals. Today she keeps learning from other performers as well as teaches workshops herself.
Miss Chrissy Kiss taught her very first workshop in 2013 and taught regular classes for 2 years between 2015-2017. Today she only teaches workshops.
In 2014 she made her first international appearance and has bee performing all over Europe ever since - festivals and private events alike. Countries performed at so far: Finland, Sweden, Germany, Austria, Latvia, Poland, Netherlands, Italy.
In 2014 she also produced her very first burlesque show alongside Affinity Starr - the Sticky Nipples Revue - the Baltics biggest burlesque show. Chrissy and Affinity are still co-producing the show annually. This show features the best of local performers and always a selection of international burlesque superstars aiming to broaden the understanding of what burlesque is or can be for our audiences. Miss Kiss is also the producer of monthly Heldeke! Burlesk club and other re-occurring burlesque shows in Estonia.
Today she is one of the leading figures of Burlesque Estonia alongside Affinity Starr and Foxy Suzy, promoting and building a healthy, diverse, and blooming the burlesque community in Estonia.
