Elle Rioux has been performing in Chicago for 10 years. She graduated with a BA in theater from Middlebury College in Vermont and after spending a year competively horseback riding (that’s right!) she relocated to the Midwest. She has extensive musical theater, childrens’ theater and dance experience and joined the Chicago burlesque scene dancing with The Flaming Dames in 2009. By day she is a veterinary technician and also enjoys spending time at home with her own pet menagerie of 1 dog, 4 cats, 3 turtles, 3 snakes, 3 guinea pigs, 3 gerbils, and 2 birds!
“Now my favorite Burlesque girl of the evening, was [Elle Rioux] who did the routine in reverse, it was very wierd, but original. And thats what made it great! She really had some specific movements and to do that all in reverse was just mesmorizing.” Josh B. (Yelp)
