Meet Your Kingston Instructors!
Rhapsody Blue is chronically ill with a license to thrill. This fire-eating, shimmy-shaking darling is a strip joint feature dancer, a circus entertainer, and a prolific emcee and producer. She has been performing burlesque since 2010. For five years, Rhapsody produced the weekly burlesque spectacular known as Burlesque Wednesdays.
She is the only artist, to date, to take her bra off on stage at Canada's National Arts Centre.
Rhapsody sat on the board of directors of the Ottawa Burlesque Festival, serves as resident MC for Naked Boys Reading Ottawa, and has worked in theatrical choreography.
Rhapsody Blue has appeared at the NOLA Nerdlesque Festival, the Toronto, Edmonton, and Ottawa Burlesque Festivals, the Ottawa International Buskers Festival, & in 2018 was featured talent in the Capital Burlesque Expo. Rhapsody is also a fetish educator and playwright. The Bombest Booty in the Book Club... it's Rhapsody Blue!
Rebecca Cordage brings the chaos, the sass, and very little class. This queer, neurodivergent honey has been performing since a very young age.

She will help you explore different characters and feel out different vibes throughout her time with you. Rebecca specializes in choreography based instruction. Rebecca’s goal as an instructor with Rouge Studio of Dance: Kingston is to create a safe space for all levels, genders, and bodies to explore and challenge themselves.
