Classes with Miss Indigo Blue on Saturday, February 28, 2009

I remember seeing and meeting Miss Indigo Blue at Tease-O-Rama last October. I had heard a lot about her and was looking forward to seeing her perform, as she's one of the top burlesque performers and educators around. Not to mention she developed the Google Calendar for burlesque events in Seattle, which is where I got the idea for this blog! And, yes, she wore blue the two times I saw her. :-D

She'll be heading to our town from the Northwest and will be performing at Cabaret Verdalet (see previous posting) on Saturday night. That afternoon, however, she'll be teaching two classes at the Center for Sex and Culture in San Francisco. Here are the details:

Miss Indigo Blue Bio:

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.
