"The Shining Star"

Born from a shooting star and taking her mantra straight from the life of little Shirley Temple who was told to "Sparkle, Baby, Just Sparkle!". Meredith started sparkling at the tender age of seven years old when she won her very first Little Miss Princess Pageant. She has been delighting audiences through her work on local stages ever since. Growing up she learned the definition of the words "curves" and "tease" and she joined up in Charlotte, NC with Big Mamma D's House of Burlesque in 2008 to more fully explore those terms. She has been an independant and traveling performer for several years although she most often appears in her hometown of Charlotte, NC.

Since starting her career she has traveled all over the country bringing her art to far flung places. A true student of the art and history of the Burlesque stage she is constantly perfecting her acts to make them even more entertaining for a wider variety of audiences. Meredith appeared in her very first International Burlesque Competition, The Great Southern Exposure of Charlotte NC in 2011 and won the "Princess" category for her signature act "Roxanne". In 2014, her "Tacky Tourist Beach" act was recognized as best in it's category as the "Funniest Great Southern Exposure 2014". In 2019 she was honored with the “Pimetto Cheese” award at the Discordia Dames Burlesque Festival which is awarded to a North Carolina based performer that spreads the positive spirit of North Carolina Burlesque to the wider Burlesque world. Recently hailed as one of the most creative burlesque artists in Charlotte, NC she seeks out the interesting and unusual characters and brings them to life on the Burlesque stage. Costumer, teacher and a natural performer Meredith studies the world of Burlesque and shares the stardust trapped inside. Like the stars in the night, Meredith Sparkles!
