Babes of Burlesque: 25
Indigo Blue, aka “The Twirly Girl,” is headmistress of the Academy of Burlesque in Seattle. Per her website bio:
Sexy, funny, irreverent and ingeniously clever, Miss Indigo Blue flirts with the edgy, exotic and erotic fringes of burlesque…. 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 “nouveau burlesque” entertainer has titillated crowds across the country and in Europe with her wild tassel-twirling techniques and smart, sexy and funny skits.
