Holding a Gin & Tonic in one hand with the other ready for a hug, Shimmy LaRoux is the woman your feisty grandma was “back in her day”. She knows that laughter is always the best medicine and that it’s always possible to get what you want if you know how to shake a tail feather…or even a bit more.
Shimmy owns the stage with each performance and will leave you with a smile on your face, your shoulders shaking and your body wanting just a little extra. Her style combines sweetness, joy and and in your face bawdiness that comes from knowing life is a fun ride.
A Chicago burlesque performer and model since 2014, Shimmy LaRoux is your bad girl with good home training. Bringing a combination of quirky charm and infectious energy, Shimmy is able to channel classic Hollywood, be playfully cheeky or serve fierce diva realness.
Shimmy LaRoux is sassy, classy…but never ashy!
