Babes specialize in a strong and sexy, contemporary aesthetic, with emphasis on the sexy. Our dancers are trained in ballet, tap, jazz, modern, tango, samba, bellydance, hip-hop, exotic & pole dancing. We tackle everything from the elegantly classic,
to the fiercely political, to the warped and deranged.

Opened for Frank Stallone, Gary Lewis (of the Playboys), and Peter Tork (of the Monkees), and has been told bymany fanny-pack wearing slot players after her gigs at Foxwoods Casino, that she is totally "going to make it." Niki is also Boston’s top Marilyn Monroe impersonator, half of musical comedy duo the Steamy Bohemians, and co-host/producer of the critically acclaimed traveling vintage variety show, Jerkus Circus. She has been putting on David Bowie tributes twice a year in the hopes that David will either come out of his self-imposed exile to meet her, or sue her. Either way.
