Ruby is a full-time burlesque performer who spends her time gypsying about the Northeast, with occasional trips down the coast and across the US.

I've been performing burlesque since 2009, when I took classes with Trixie Little at my roommate's circus studio in Northampton, MA. Since then, I've performed at the Great Burlesque Expo in Boston and the Ohio Burlesque festival, as well as at the Heavy Rebel Weekender in North Carolina and the Psychobilly Luau in New York. In 2013, I've been invited to perform at Fierce - the first international queer burlesque festival, as well as to compete in the Great Burlesque Expo.

My first burlesque home was Bon Appétit Burlesque in Northampton, a fantastic, monthly, woman-friendly, body positive revue created in 2010. When I was starting I also performed with the Red Light Burlesque in New Haven and many rockabilly and psychobilly shows throughout the Northeast.

I took a hiatus in 2011 and returned in full force in 2012, finding friends in Hotsy Totsy and Epic Win Burlesque in NYC, and Miss Rose's Sexploitation Follies in Philly. Since I re-entered the scene I've performed with D20 and Hell's Belles in NYC, Brick City in NJ, and at many other events in the Northeast. I'm a regular model for Dr. Sketchy's Northampton and have worked with Dr. Sketchy's Boston, as well as Pasties and Pints (a drink and draw event in upstate New York). I've also performed with Hypergender Burlesque, Burlesque for EveryBody, and more. In the summer of 2012 I co-produced Excelsior Burlesque in Kingston, NY with Bon Appétit Burlesque producer Hors D'oeuvres (more on that below).

I'm predominantly a nerdlesque performer, perhaps best known for my Chicken Act, and last year debuted a labor of love when I took my Doctor Who tribute act - a spinning, glittery Dalek - onstage at Epic Win for the first time.

2013 promises to be a great year - I'm re-starting Excelsior Burlesque in Manhattan in March (every second Tuesday at R Bar - 218 Bowery beginning March 12th) with host and NY roller derby announcer Moe Cheezmo and a fantastic rotating lineup of performers from NYC and beyond. I have festivals in the works, many great themed shows planned, and new acts rolling out each month! I hope you'll be able to make it to one of my shows - levity is guaranteed!
