Kisa, the 2013 recipient of the Phil Slomksi Memorial Artist of the Year award, started her burlesque career in 2005. In 2008 she co-founded Knoxville Tennessee’s own, award winning and world-renowned Salome Cabaret, and reigns reluctantly supreme as the troupe’s loving but firm Adminastratrix. The troupe founders went on to become teachers of their craft for the Salome Cabaret Academy of Burlesque, as well as teaching several classes at burlesque festivals nationwide. She has been the Emcee for Dragon*Con Burlesque: A Glamour Geek Review, and she competed in international competitions in Las Vegas, New York, Colorado, and Atlanta just to name a few little feathers in her ostentatious cap. She has been an integral part of countless tours and has traveled all over the country including the Party Tour in 2009, Dangerous Curves on the Go-Go in 2010 and 2011, the Grab My Junk Tour in 2011, Strip Club Time Machine tour in 2012, the Tease ‘n Tassels Tour 2012 and many more. Kisa now has the the perfect creative outlet that she had been searching for...and the only way you can have her handmade rhinestones shoes is if you pry them off her cold dead feet.
