Dita Von Teese, in her youth Heather Rene Sweet, is shocking, eccentric and the brightest star of burlesque. Each of her appearances on stage drives the men in the audience crazy. Her style, make-up, behavior are unique, and there is no one on the red carpet who would somehow resemble her.
America, Rochester, Michigan, September 28, 1972 - in the family of a machinist and a manicurist, a second daughter is born, who is given the name Heather. Subsequently, another girl appeared in the family, but of the 3 sisters, only Heather was able to break into the Olympus of fame.
When she was very young, her passion was dancing. The girl devoted all her free time from school to ballet. Dreaming of a career as a professional ballerina, Dita tied her pointe shoes and stood at the barre every day, exhausting herself to the point of exhaustion. The baby's labors were not in vain, and already at the age of 13 she had solo performances, and by the age of 15 she had reached the top of her abilities. Maybe the girl would really have expected the future of a ballerina, but a sharp change of scenery did not come truethese plans.
Dita Von Teese in her youth
Due to the change of work of the father, the family was forced to change their place of residence, moving to California. There, in Orange County, in the city of Irvine, Dita went to school to continue her education.

Dita Von Teese studied historical costumes in her youth, leaving her dream of becoming a ballerina for a profession as a costume designer in Hollywood. And although she did not become one, the profession was very useful to her when Dita became a burlesque star. After all, she comes up with all the stage costumes for her programs and photo shoots herself.
But there are moments in her biography that she remembers with dislike, although she does not deny their positive impact on her current life. The last school years became such sad memories.
As a teenager, Dita was not a beauty, for which she became the subject of ridicule and humiliation of classmates and other children. She was even injured, so strong was the hatred of her peers around her.
But when she was 14 years old, young Heather decided to radically change the situation in which she found herself.
