Calgary burlesque dancers Raven Virginia and Miyuki Divine joined local performers at the Electric Owl Friday July 12th at Blue Morris’ Rock and Roll Burlesque show.

The two dancers performed alongside the Blue Morris live band.

Raven Virginia runs the Garter Girls School of Burlesque in Calgary. She met Morris at the Vancouver International Burlesque Festival “a couple years back,” according to a press release.

Miyuki Divine has been an burlesque performer since 2006 and is a member of Calgary’s Garter Girls Burly-Q Revue. Both dancers recently performed at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas, one of the most prestigious burlesque events in the world.


From the press release: “Following numerous sold out shows in the past three years, Vancouver impresario Blue Morris has teamed up with the Electric Owl to create a new monthly burlesque show with live music called ‘Rock and Roll Burlesque.’

“’A lot of burlesque today is very pretty and gentle,’ says Morris. ‘We’re creating a show that channels the bad-ass attitude of rock from Chuck Berry to Jack White with burlesque by some of Vancouver’s biggest names. We’re bringing a “Whole Lotta Love” to the burlesque stage.’”

Performers at Rock ‘n’ Roll Burlesque July 12 2013 included Raven Virginia, Miyuki Divine, Bruce Wang, Connie Cahoots, Isadroa Belle and Ruthe Ordare.
