Entertainer, instructor, and entrepreneur:  that sultry bombshell on stage isn’t just your garden-variety Burlesque dancer. She’s Indigo Blue – and beware, this comely coquette will have you aching for more.

For the last twenty years, this “neo-burlesque” entertainer has titillated crowds across the world with her wild tassel-twirling techniques and smart, sexy, and funny shows.  With a strong dance and theater background and extensive experience as a stripper, Miss Indigo Blue brings sensuality, musicality, eroticism, and humor to her carefully crafted routines.  Miss Indigo built her reputation on creative and hilarious surprises, erotic dance skills, detailed and authentic retro 1930’s-1960’s costuming, and naughty reduxes of popular characters like Holly Golightly, Carmen Miranda and Wonder Woman.  She is now best known for her lavish wardrobe and perfectly executed classic acts, including tributes to Burlesque Legends Wild Cherry and Ricci Cortez.

Seattle’s burlesque stalwart, Miss Indigo is one of the most sought after performers in the world. Most recently she has graced stages in Helsinki, Stockholm, Basel, Vancouver, Toronto, Shanghai, Lisbon, Dublin, London, and Amsterdam.  She has an extensive national following, having taught and performed in too many major cities to list. Miss Indigo is Miss Exotic World 2011, and holds numerous other awards from the Burlesque Hall of Fame including Most Classic 2011, 1st Runner-Up Tassel Twirling 2004, Best Legs 2003, and Little Miss Aftershock 2002.  In 2008 she was selected by Heeb Magazine for the “Heeb 100”, won “Sexiest Eyes” at the New York Burlesque Festival, and starred in the critically acclaimed documentary film “A Wink And A Smile” about her Academy of Burlesque. She currently performs as a soloist, with Lily Verlaine Presents, and as a troupe member of The Atomic Bombshells.

Miss Indigo Blue is also the President and Chief Twirling Officer of TwirlyGirl Pasties, the founder and Executive Director of BurlyCon Burlesque Educational Convention, and the Co-Director of Education at the Burlesque Hall of Fame.  Miss Indigo Blue is based in Seattle, WA.
