Miss Indigo Blue

Headmistress of The Academy of Burlesque
Reigning Queen of Burlesque
Miss Exotic World 2011

It could be the elephant trunk attached to her crotch, or the dozens of blown up latex gloves surrounding her torso, but you just know that sultry bombshell on stage isn’t your uncle’s burlesque dancer.  She’s Miss Indigo Blue — and get ready, because she’s one comely coquette that will leave you panting for more.Miss Indigo Blue

Sexy, funny, irreverent and ingeniously clever, Miss Indigo Blue flirts with the edgy, exotic and erotic fringes of burlesque. Evoking the elegant tease of legend Gypsy Rose Lee, and inspired by the brilliant comic wit of Whitney Biennial recipient Julie Atlas Muz, Miss Indigo is more than just a great practitioner of the ol’ bump and grind; she enlivens her performances with a heady blend of brainy and bawdy that makes audience’s mouths water, as their minds whirl.

For the last ten years , this “Neo-burlesque” entertainer has titillated crowds across the country and in Europe with her wild tassel-twirling techniques and smart, sexy, and funny skits.  With a strong dance and theater background and extensive experience as a stripper, Miss Indigo Blue brings sensuality, sexuality, eroticism, and humor to her carefully crafted routines. Miss Indigo is known for her creative and hilarious surprises, erotic dance skills, detailed and authentic retro 1930’s-1960’s costuming, and naughty reformulations of favorite characters like Holly Golightly, Carmen Miranda and Wonder Woman. She just completed a tribute act to Living Legend Wild Cherry, and is developing a tribute act to recently passed Legend Ricci Cortez, “The Sleepy Time Girl.”

Miss Indigo has performed across the globe including with the Twisted Clits in Amsterdam,  Va Va Voom Room in New York  and San Francisco, Gurlesque Burlesque in Chicago, Burlesque As It Was in Denver, Kit Kat Follies in Los Angeles, and BurlyQ in London.  Seattle’s burlesque stalwart, Miss Indigo is a four-time award-winner at the annual Miss Exotic World competition, and currently holds the title of Reigning Queen of Burlesque, Miss Exotic World 2011.  She also holds the First Runner Up title from the Jennie Lee Tassel Twirling Contest.  Miss Indigo founded BurlyQ Queer Cabaret in 2002, which now has outcroppings in New York and London.  Miss Indigo currently performs as a soloist *and* with the Atomic Bombshells, to be one of the most sought-after performers in the Northwest.

Miss Indigo Blue is also the President and Chief Twirling Officer of TwirlyGirl, creating exquisite pasties for discriminating nipples, and the founder and Headmistress of the Academy of Burlesque in Seattle.  She has teaches Tassel Twirling and Teasing techniques in New York, Chicago, Toronto, Helsinki, Stockholm, Minneapolis, Asheville, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Vancouver BC, London and Seattle.  Miss Indigo Blue is based in Seattle, WA.
