Meena Helvetia is the sultry Swiss starlet of burlesque, protege to the inimitable Millie Dollar, and salsa striptease innovator.
Combining the fiery Latin American rhythms of salsa with the opulence of burlesque, Meena has created a truly unique style fuelled by passion and practice.
This seamstress meets seductress designs and creates all of her own costumes, and is always looking to elevate her craft through new techniques, styles and experimentation.
A powerful, vivacious and voluptuous creature, Meena has created a one-of-a-kind stage presence combining the glamour, humour and history of burlesque with the steamy passion of salsa to create a truly unforgettable experience.
