R.U.D.E. Burlesque

is one of the best kept secrets in the Gem City!

Each night we bring the art of dance, interactive cinema, and musicianship to the center stage!



R.U.D.E. was found in 2014 by Davida Lattimore, Ayonda Hayden, and Jasmine Gates with the vision of creating artistic expression through performance dance. Burlesque uses comedy and music to challenge the established way of viewing the world. Its history is embedded with women going beyond their expected gender roles. To experience this Burlesque is to embrace performers' skills of seductive, provocative, and sexually explicit forms of dance.

"The art of dance is a powerful impulse channeled by performers into something that becomes intensely expressive."
