Edie started dancing over a decade ago to give herself time and money to do music. She began dancing in San Francisco and then continued when she got back to London. She has worked in Browns, The Griffin, The White Horse, The Peel and for Rainbow Agency. Edie is officially Level 6 at Pole Dancing, and she also takes Belly Dancing classes as it is a beautiful, sensual dance that totally compliments striptease. Edie’s style can be described as a retro burlesque look as she has long dark hair with a Betty Page style cut.
Her activism began in 2010 when Hackney Council had a consultation to impose a ‘nil policy’ therefore closing down all the long established and well run, independent strip pubs. This involved going to meetings with councillors and MPs to put the case that clubs deserved to stay open, speaking to journalists, speaking at debates and writing articles for blogs.
Music is her other passion and she currently plays in a band that can be described as Gothic Americana. She sings, plays acoustic guitar and autoharp and has recently played at Camp Bestival and Bestival after finding a fan in Rob da Bank. Edie is an all round entertainer, with genuine style and stage presence, for whom performing is a genuinely empowering creative outlet.
