With 2023 Headliner Miss Indigo Blue!
Miss Indigo Blue founded the Academy of Burlesque in 2003 in response to her burning passion to teach and share her love of Burlesque with eager budding ecdysiasts. A lifelong student of dance, theater, and performance, Miss Indigo first trained with Burlesque Legends Wild Cherry and Kitty West in 2001. Shortly thereafter she met Dixie Evans, the proprietor of Exotic World and the Burlesque Hall of Fame, and Indigo’s life changed evermore.
With her strong dance and theater background and extensive experience as a stripper, Miss Indigo Blue’s sensuality, musicality, eroticism, and humor earned her a reputation as a sought-after entertainer and instructor.
In 2011 Miss Indigo Blue won the highest International title for Burlesque performance, “Miss Exotic World”.
She currently performs as a soloist and as a troupe member of The Atomic Bombshells. Miss Indigo Blue is based in Seattle, WA.
Featuring Shimmy LaRoux!
A Chicago burlesque performer, event host, and model, Shimmy LaRoux is your bad girl with good home training. Bringing a combination of quirky charm and infectious energy, Shimmy is able to channel classic Hollywood, be playfully cheeky or serve fierce diva realness.
Shimmy was crowned Miss Burlesque World 2022 and named the #21 burlesque performer in the world. She has recently closed the 2022 Dutch Burlesque Festival and performed at the 2022 Stockholm Burlesque Festival. She is also an International Playboy Cover Model (June 2022 - Denmark)
Shimmy LaRoux is sassy, classy…but never ashy!
Featuring Pepper Grinds!
Pepper Grinds, “the Coarsest Broad in Burlesque”, is the founder and fearless leader of Cape Cod’s first burlesque troupe—the Brazen Belles. After more than a decade of singing, dancing, performing and traveling the globe, Pepper returned to her roots in 2011 to spice up quiet village life with some sultry bumping and grinding, some satirical wit and a whole lot of sass.
Pepper’s signature Gun Slinging Act has been featured in shows and festivals in New England and Canada, was chosen to compete in “best debut” at the Burlesque Hall of fame 2019 and earned the judges choice award at Alternatease 2018.
