Growing up, Shannon Doah admired the goddesses and dancers from Hollywood's Silver Screen and Golden Years.  While rummaging in the garage, she discovered her parent's old "Le Crazy Horse Saloon" and "Lido de Paris" brochures!
Her parents had seen the Crazy Horse Saloon show in 1951, the first year the Paris cabaret opened!
She dreamed of becoming a showgirl.
Her burlesque adventures began during the1960's in wild, untamed, notorious North Beach in San Francisco. She began Go Go dancing at Big Al's, The Condor and El Cid with live bands, singers, comedians and "barkers" at the front door.   Rock stars, movie stars, sports stars and world-class dancers would often sneak in for a peek!   She danced in Los Angeles and Hollywood Strip clubs and became one of the featured dancers in the first US production of the original Crazy Horse Paris Saloon show. The club was a favorite hang out of Hollywood's stars and International celebrities.  "The Losers" was the location of the filming of the movie "Flare-up" starring Raquel Welch).
