Born in a poof of sparkles on New Year’s Eve, Emma Glitterbomb is a writer by day and vixen by night. This blue-eyed floozy is an alum of Gorilla Tango Burlesque, the Kiss Kiss Cabaret and Studio L’amour. She shimmies and shakes throughout Chicago and Indiana, and is proud to reprise her Vodka solo in this year’s Buttcracker. Check out her essay “What It’s Really Like to Be a Burlesque Dancer” on SELF.com. Shine on!
