For almost a decade, Gin Minsky has been known as NYC’s premiere tap and burlesque performer, event producer (Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governors Island, Champagne Riot, Webster Hall’s East Ville des Folies,) and go-to gal for all things Jazz Age. Classically trained in jazz, ballet, pointe, tap and modern, her performances include a varied spectrum of performative dance acts and are suitable for a wide range of venues from cabaret clubs to upscale concert halls.
Gin Minsky first hit the stage with taps on her feet at the tender age of five and has continued to dazzle and delight audiences across America. By blending skill, creativity, technique and charm, she has become known as one of the top tap and burlesque performers performing at notable venues including Carnegie Hall, Philadelphia Museum of Art, P.S. 122, Joe’s Pub, Iridium Jazz Club, McKittrick Hotel, Copacabana, Highline Ballroom and Webster Hall. A regular at NYC’s Dances of Vice, Gin has also been a featured performer at the NYC Food & Wine Festival, The Salon and the “Oscars of burlesque” the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend in Las Vegas, winning the award for “Most Classic” in 2017. Accomplished as a solo performer, Gin can also be found partnering with dance legend Roddy Caravella, the Champagne Riot’s Dandy Wellington, and as one half of the Minsky Sisters with Kristen Minsky.
Tapped into all things jazz, Gin has produced numerous Jazz Age inspired events. Gin is also the creator of the Champagne Riot – a vintage celebration that serves up an intoxicating cocktail of Hot Jazz, Scintillating Burlesque and Vaudvillian Frivolity – as well as talent producer for Webster Hall’s annual East Ville des Folies. Working on all aspects of event production, Gin can make sure your next event is buttoned up with tails out from pre-production to performance!
