International Burlesque Showgirl & Educator Red Hot Annie

Internationally recognized, award-winning burlesque headliner.

Red Hot Annie (VAUDEZILLA!, The Windy City Burlesque Fest) has performed in 6 countries and nearly every US state – and has worked with (literally) thousands of artists and students over 13 years to cultivate confidence and self-love through burlesque. 

From nurturing confidence and talent within blossoming stars (many of whom are named the top performers in the world!) to introducing popular show production solutions, Red Hot Annie’s influence on the Chicago burlesque scene is undeniable.

Red Hot Annie has appeared on Check Please (WTTW), at The Burlesque Hall of Fame (Las Vegas), World Burlesque Games (London), London Burlesque Fest, New York Burlesque Fest, Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender (Vegas), Strasbourg Burlesque Fest, Montreal Burlesque Fest, Vancouver Burlesque Fest, amongst hundreds of other shows and festivals worldwide.

Annie loves sharing the power of naughty art to transform through books and online courses, including “The Becoming Burlesque Workbook,” now available on Amazon.
