  • OUR 2017 HEADLINERS & ARTISTS in RESIDENCE

    FONDA LINGUE

    DANCER/BURLESQUE HEADLINER & ARTIST IN RESIDENCE 2017

    mmersed in the opulence and glamour of years gone by, Miss Lingue has come to Burlesque after over twenty years of experience as a Professional Ballet Dancer, Teacher and Choreographer. She performs acts that range from the traditional striptease to the luxurious feather fan dances of the Golden Era of Burlesque.


    In January of 2012 she was diagnosed with cancer and, as of this date, is cancer free! She indicates that beating cancer has been her biggest accomplishment to date!

    A true international performer, her goal is to keep the art of Classic Burlesque alive and to pass her passion for the art form on to younger performers through teaching and example as a performer. As a transgender performer, she is here to show that burlesque breaks all barriers of sex or gender.

     

    She's one in a million...The Diamond Dame!
