'When music starts and the lights turn up, there is no turning back, no matter much you suddenly have to pee. After 5 years performing Burlesque in my small mountain town of Taos, NM, the fear and excitement of performing never cease to exist. As a shy quiet young(ish) women, burlesque has become the saving grace for me to express, accept, and love myself. I would dare say, I never want know the women I would have become with out it. I may be a self trained dancer, but I absolutely know how to bump to the beat.' -Jan 2018
Ms. Coco Blu
Born Corrina Llopart, grew up mostly in the Mid-west. At age 23, Ms. Coco Blu landed herself in the heart of Taos, NM.
The one passion that Coco could never stray from was dancing. As an untrained dancer, the odds of making a full time gig of that was out of the question. But, like many, Ms. Blu's had a desire to express movement on stage. After living in NM for a year she stumbled upon a local burlesque, and it was love at first movement. Two very short years later, Coco Blu had climbed to top of the burlesque chain in this small mountain town, and has now reached out to other communities, even other states.
In 2014, Coco became the booking agent and Co-Founder of a local burlesque troupe called The Unstrung Pearls, and up the ladder she continued.
In 2016, Coco became the sole founder of her new project Coco's Hen House of Burlesque, which not just a dance troupe, but a traveling burlesque school as well. Early 2016, Ms. Coco Blu's first burlesque workshop took place in Durango, CO, partnering with the IAM Music Institute. Ms. Coco Blu has also worked closely with multiple artist, such as Hello Dollface, Imaginario Circus, Zircus Erotica, Bohemian Burlesque Society, IAM Music Fest, KNCE 93.5, and Kiki Love Productions, both Colorado and New Mexico based artists.
