Born Heather Sweet in West Branch, MI, Dita grew up fascinated by the Golden Age of Cinema, pin-up imagery, and vintage lingerie. This naturally blond, mid-western girl then transformed herself into one of the glamour girls she grew up adoring.
Performing burlesque since 1992, she is the undisputed international queen of burlesque, and credited with bringing the art form back in to the spotlight with a new sense of glamour and sophistication. Taking audiences on a journey into fantasy and spectacle, Dita is renowned for her ornate sets and dazzling haute-couture performance costumes adorned with hundreds of thousands of Swarovski crystals.
Dita will be in Seattle for three shows at the newly renovated Neptune Theatre. Friday, May 24 at 8:00pm, and two shows on Saturday, May 25 at 8:00pm and 11:00pm.
Tickets are available online or by phone. The Neputune Theatre is located at:
