Brooklyn Burlesque starlette, Angie Pontani broke into show business with the Dutch Weismann speakeasy chorus line before she was old enough to enter a nightclub through the front door. Shimmying up the showgirl ranks Angie quickly became a featured solo performer in the show and
throughout NYC. Entrancing the press and audiences alike with her winning smile, inspired dance moves and affinity for over the top costuming, Angie caught the collective eye of renowned promoters, photographers, artists. She has modeled extensively for some of the best in the business including Ellen Von Unwerth, Josh Gosfield,
Orlando Marra, & Dana Luxembourg, muse to acclaimed painter, David Remfry. Angie has been seen in all her glittery glory in major pictorials in magazines such as Flaunt, New York Magazine, Style Monte
Carlo & L’Uomo Vogue.
Not one to rest on her high heels, Angie formed the World Famous Pontani Sisters, a trio of choreographed cuties on a quest to bring glamour back to entertainment! With her sisters in syncopation, Tara & Helen, Angie began staging Busby Berkely inspired dance production numbers on the glorious Coney Island boardwalk. Reminiscent of a MGM Technicolor musical, the sisters boogied with serious foot sync and wildly ornate costumes hand crafted by Angie. Drawing glowing attention from the press, the Pontani Sisters began to perform all over
NYC and eventually across the nation, having completed over 13 National tours & European appearances. They are one of the most recognized and respected names in the business, and have been credited with helping to pioneer the new Burlesque revival. Most recently the sisters were named the “#1 Burlesque Attraction in the nation” as well as being named “Best NY Based Dance Company” by Show Business Weekly.

unmatched in style, sass, class & costuming. Performing all over the world both alone and with her sisters, Angie spreads the glamour gospel with every shimmy, bump ‘n grind, high kick and eye trick! Having appeared at private events for The Deitch Project, Jane Magazine, Fox 5

The fun stuff…
Angie Pontani is a left-handed Scorpio who lives in Brooklyn, NY with her loveable yet terribly ferocious dog Elvis. She enjoys collecting anything in animal print, vintage LP’s, spurs and paintings of horses,
which she also enjoys riding. In her spare time she enjoys sewing, crocheting, gardening, overdressing, bedazzling everything, riding her orange chopper bicycle, and cooking giant Sunday dinners for her family and friends. She does all of this in high heels.
