A fusion of coquettish charm and fiery flirtatiousness, Rita’s style is a delicious mixture of whimsy, grace and titillating tease. Well known for her classic homages to stage mistresses of the past, you may see Rita channel the sass of Miss Carmen Miranda or break into a beloved number from Cabaret. At the same time, she is no stranger to the innovation & excitement of today's neo-burlesque, incorporating jaw-dropping couture outfits and a touch of comedy to her pieces.
Rita has graced stages all over the Canada and the United States from the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Vegas to esteemed festivals in New York, Texas, and Montreal. She has been a member of the Sweet Soul Burlesque troupe since her debut performance in 2004.
