Performers 2013

Roxi D’Lite

Roxi D’Lite is one of the world’s premier burlesque performers and a Queen of Burlesque at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas.
There has been no shortage of accolades for Roxi in her illustrious career. In 2010, Roxi became one of the youngest performers to ever be crowned Miss Exotic World and hasn’t looked back. Known as the Drinkin’, Smokin, Strippin’ Machine, Roxi has also been called the Bad Girl of Burlesque—a hefty accolade considering the eclectic cast of burlesque’s ecdysiasts. For four consecutive years Roxi has been voted in the “Top 10 Burlesque Performers” in the world.

Unanimously credited as Canada’s Burlesque Queen, Roxi is an innovator of the burlesque world. Classic striptease with a modern twist is the hallmark of Roxi’s performance style; a trailblazer who seamlessly blends elaborate props and costumes with circus performances. Roxi was originally trained on the lyra (aerial hoop) by a former Cirque du Soleil performer and has made aerial performances her calling card. She continues to push boundaries by including the use of a Cyr Wheel making Roxi the first and only burlesque performer in the world to use this breathtaking device.

Since then he has written, hosted, produced and, most notably, drank at some of the Southland’s finest burlesque revues.
