Sandria Dore noticed Burlesque in 2005 when she discovered the work of Burlesque performer and designer Catherine D’Lish. By 2009 Dore was performing with Portland producer Raylene Courtney and the Sin Savvy shows. Two venues for Burlesque at the time were the intimate Hawthorne Theatre Side Bar and the big night club, Barracuda.
Dore has performed widely, both locally and internationally, including festivals such as the London Burlesque Festival in 2013 and the Cirque Erotique in Finland in 2014. A career highlight, thus far, was winning Best Duo Award with then dance partner, Russell Brunner, at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender in 2013.
