The Pussycat Dolls (abbreviation PCD) is an American pop / R & B dance group, formed by choreographer Robin Antin in 1995 as a troupe dancing in burlesque style, established in Los Angeles.
In the early 90s, choreographer Robin Antin, known in the show business world for her work with The Offspring and No Doubt, formed her own dance troupe called The Pussycat Dolls. The girls began by performing cabaret-like numbers, rehearsing in the garage of actress Christina Applegate, friend of Robin Antin. As a result, Applegate arranged for the young band to perform at the prestigious Los Angeles club The Viper Room, owned by Johnny Depp. Depp's comment after their performance was allegedly the following: "That's why I opened my club!"
It took the girls not so long to become one of the most famous dance groups in Hollywood, tickets for their shows were always sold out in advance. The head of the troupe was the star of the TV series "Rescuers Malibu" Carmen Electra. Many celebrities queued up to be invited guests to The Pussycat Dolls parties. For several years, Pamela Anderson, Brittany Murphy, Scarlett Johansson, Paris Hilton, Charlize Theron, Kelly Osbourne, Pink and many, many others performed on the same stage with the girls.
