What happens when you bring together a vixen, an acrobrat, a murderess, and a princessa? You get a troupe of trouble makers with attitude and determination, ready to take on the world! These four femmes graduated Miss Indigo Blue’s Academy of Burlesque early 2018 and have been finding their way into burlesque separately. But when the universe pushed them together, the chemistry was undeniable. So they joined forces to create Seattle’s newest burlesque troupe.
