Twirlisha Devine

Born and raised in Chester, PA this whirlwind of sass and ass twirled into Burlesque and hasn’t looked back. Twirlisha trained in ballet, modern, tap and jazz as a child and spent much of her adult life working as a semi-professional and professional modern dancer in Philadelphia and NYC.

She thought her dance career had come to an end but decided to take some burlesque classes for fun and exercise and caught the glitter bug.
