Peekaboo Pointe, known as the ‘Fastest Tassel-Twirler from East to West’, has graced the stage of nearly every burlesque show in New York City and continues on her mission of “Seducing the World, one stage at a time.”

Since then, Peekaboo has applied her extensive knowledge of dance to the nightlife of New York City and turned it into striptease gold. She embodies classic burlesque glamour, but can’t resist throwing a little seductive shock into each of her performances.
