Behind the tassels
Born and raised in New York City, Kita St Cyr grew up the daughter of a fiesty salsa teacher, and spent much of her childhood in the 1990s in nightclubs immersed in latin music and vintage fashion. Perhaps unsurprisingly, she grew up on a constant quest to bring that same spirit of jubilance and celebration to the ever changing world around her. With over a decade of experience as a pinup model and a degree in fashion design under her belt, she is known for creating an experience that's equal parts old hollywood glamour and edgy downtown grit.
Kita St. Cyr has been called "one of the top Latin Performers in New York" by Fox News Latino, "fiery" by the Village Voice, and "Lewd & immoral" by Press Enterprise. She's best known for producing NYC's long running classic burlesque show Rhinestone Follies, nightlife game shows Tiki Dating Game & Porn Karaoke, appearing in the historic revival of The Marx Brothers' I'll Say She Is and hosting monthly jazz party Wit's End.
