The World’s Smallest Stripper Sassie Cassie is proud to be just 2’10. What she may lack in size she certainly makes up for in personality and energy.
Officialy recognised as The World’s Smallest Stripper
Born in Minnesota, US Sassee Cassee, weighs just over ninetenn kilograms,and was was once told she’d never make it in the world of stripping and pole dancing.
She shut the negative voices out and worked towards chasing her dream after becoming officially recognised as the worlds smallest stripper.
Would you like to tell us about yourself?
I’m 29 years old and I’m 2’10. I’ve been dancing for 11 years now. In my off time,
I write short stories and song lyrics. I have no children but a fur baby is my world. He’s a Dachshund and his name is Marley.
You have officially been classed as the world’s smallest stripper but what was the thought process that made you choose the lifestyle that you lead?
I honestly didn’t choose this for myself. It was simply that i was sought out after being featured on the Jerry Springer show when I was 18,
Then an agency saw me on there and I was put on there books. .
They asked if I wanted to travel to clubs and dance and make money doing it.
I was 19 when made my first paid appearance at a gentleman’s club.
My thought process was of course I’ll do this. I’m young, and who doesn’t want to travel and make money at the same time.
The Worlds Smallest Stripper being booked as a novelty
Do you feel that you are booked as a novelty?
Most definitely I’m booked as a novelty. And I’m ok with it. It’s not every day that you see someone my size get on stage and perform.
Do you feel you have advantages as a dwarf that others may not?
As a dwarf dancer, I believe there are advantages.
I have incredible strength that goes into my shows. I’m a fantasy to a lot of people.
There are also its disadvantages. But I make up for those. I climb the pole differently than any other women.
I use my feet instead of wrapping my legs around them.
But every performer has its disadvantages and advantages in the world. We all adapt and make our shows wonderful.
I love this business and the great performers I meet along my travels.
Why is the word midget so often considered derogatory?
I believe that the little people community has deemed it derogatory.
The word midget means small, someone of short stature.
It was never meant to be derogatory.
But some people use it that way. And we have come up with a less offensive-sounding term.
Little person. And dwarf means someone of small stature as well with a medical condition that makes them short.
Hence the word dwarfism.
But a lot of people don’t know that and just need to be educated on how the word midget can be offensive even though most people don’t use it to be offensive.
I myself don’t like to use it but I will when promoting myself.
Because when you say little person dancer people might think of someone who is 4’6 or something but when you use midget people know you are talking about a really small individual.
Adult entertainment industry
Have you ever had offers from the adult entertainment industry?
Yes, I’ve had offers, and I myself don’t want to get into that industry.
I’m doing well with the dancing/stripping entertainment. I am not against those who do it.
I applaud them. But it isn’t what I’d like to do.
Have you ever/would you ever consider being on TV other than talkshows?
I’ve been on TV a few times but mainly talkshows.
From Jerry Springer to the Maury Povich show before he was doing the paternity tests.
I’ve also been on the John Walsh show when he just had a regular talk show. I wouldn’t mind having my own reality show. But I’d want to control it.
Supporting the decisions of other little people
What are your feelings on events such as dwarf tossing?
I myself would never participate in that event. It can be dangerous and to me, I consider it demeaning. But I don’t hate on others who decide that’s what they want to do.
I believe as a little person we should support the decisions of other little people in the community.
I’ve had incidents in were other little women have said I have given the little woman a bad name because of my profession.
That they looked at badly because I’m a stripper and people assume all little women are like that.
I highly disagree – I’m small, yes, but I’m making a living and decided to be a stripper just like an average height woman decided they wanted to be a stripper.
As far as other people putting all little women in the same category, that isn’t my fault.
It’s to blame on the person saying that. And not looking at little women as individuals. I chose my path so let me be me and I’ll let you be you.
Sassie Cassie’s Last words
My advice for any dancer in particular. Save your money. We can’t do this job forever.
Do not let people get you down for your job. Whether you are doing it for fun or to make extra cash. Or providing for your family and yourself. this is your life no one else’s.
