Cherry on Top
(Burlesque, Where Not To Do Bhangra)
Cherry OnTop has been performing as a burlesque artist in Vancouver since 2003 and is one of the founders of Sweet Soul Burlesque, the acclaimed West Coast troupe. She has rocked stages from Whitehorse to Acapulco, Toronto to Phoenix, and always brings the heat.
Known for her energy and dance moves, Cherry OnTop will kick you in the teeth while simultaneously kissing you on the lips. With a love for the beauty of classic burlesque, she is most inspired by hip hop and world music and is able to bridge the gap between classic and neo-burlesque with a wink and a smile.
Cherry has been featured performing on Showtime’s "The L Word" and has appeared on Fashion TV, CITY TV, and MTV. She has also graced the cover of Vancouver’s Georgia Straight entertainment magazine and was honoured to be chosen to compete for "Best Debut" at the 2010 Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas and "Best Duo" along with Lola Frost in 2012.
As one of the original co-producers of The Vancouver International Burlesque Festival and co-owner of the former underground palace DollHouse Studios, Cherry is extremely excited about her current project - The Vancouver Burlesque Centre - and happy to be working with one of her favourite performers in the city, Lola Frost.
You can catch Cherry OnTop @ The Keefer Bar's Sweet Sip Thursdays, Sweet Soul Burlesque's weekly show.
