Vintage Queen no 45: Sharon from Australia Our fabulous Vintage Queen no 44 is from Perth, Australia. She is a coveted swing and Charleston dancer, has her own burlesque company and works as a pin-up if she’s not out and about working as a jazz DJ. Phew! Sharon Davis is a famous swing dancer – in the international swing dance scene she’s pretty much a celebrity. Sharon travels around the world with her partner -who has sneakily nominated her as a Vintage Queen – teaching and performing Lindy Hop, Charleston, and a bunch of other swing dances at festivals and events. Sharon is one of the best Twenties Charleston dancers in the world, for which she’s won pretty much every competition title under the sun. You could say, she’s a professional flapper! As if her swing dancing career wasn’t enough, Sharon is also a burlesque dancer. She founded Sugar Blue Burlesque, which is Australia’s largest burlesque company. She specialises in Twenties and Thirties burlesque, and she’s performed her feather fan dance and Josephine Baker banana dance tribute all over the world. An avid jazz fan, Sharon has a ridiculous jazz and swing music collection and gets hired internationally to play at festivals and dance events.

It was one of the greatest times I’ve ever had! She’s such a lovely person -you can’t not like her. And her burlesqueacts are fantastic too! Alisha November 16th, 2009 I’m so happy to see Sharon here – she’s definitely worthy of her Queen of Vintage title!
