Her past life(s) included touring as a featured performer and crew member with the band, Beats Antique, being stage manager and performer with the Hubba Hubba Revue (SF), touring around the world performing and teaching burlesque and fusion dance, and living off the land in a remote village while running a dance school in a neighboring town.RESA LA REVVResa la Revv is thrilled to return to the stage after a long year of quarantining. Freshly vaccinated, she cant wait to give her own injection of sultry and sassy tease to a live audience again. Resa is originally from Florida, where she began her burlesque journey as a Lady of the Peekaboo Lounge under the direction of the renown performer and emcee, Blue Star. She moved to Portland in 2018 and lit up the burlesque scene – quite literally – when she lit her hair on fire in her debut performance at the Jack London. She has also performed for Lacy Knickers Productions, Vanitys Vaudeville Vixens, Burlynomicon, Feral Dance Crew, the Portland Erotic Ball and more. Resa is also one-third of the burlesque trio Mnage a Yaaah, alongside Karlie Lever du Soliel and The Mad Marquis, who brought you the hit Buffy the Vampire Slayer act in 2019. In her muggle life, Resa performs as a company dancer with BodyVox in Portland.
