(Tonya Kay’s) love for classic cars, as an owner herself, sparked the initial idea of throwing her show back to the pinup years, where dames ruled their curves, their attitudes, and shook what their momma’s gave them. Tonya wanted to embrace that yesteryear fun and knock it together with the athleticism of pole dancing.
Tonya Kay has been in the burlesque business for close to 10 years now. She knows how to shimmy. She knows how to shine brighter than rhinestones on the costumes she designed herself, and found others to join her in that vibrant spotlight. She took her love for theater while in Chicago, her drive acting in America’s toughest city, New York, and whipped it all into her sheer focus to create, produced, and direct the Pinup Pole Show.
