Revolva first hit the stage at age four in a Detroit-area ballet class. After a lifetime of dancing, acting and word slinging (she doubles as a writer), she added hoops to her repertoire in 2002. Audiences as far away as Europe and Asia have never been the same. Over the years, Revolva has thrilled corporate clients, opened for bands, riled up fans during halftime shows, evoked laughter and brought crowds to standing ovations. Vaudeville is her game. While she can blow you away freestyling to live music, she really shines with her over-the-top character numbers. Her mantra? “Funny IS sexy!”
Now based in Oakland, CA, Revolva has rocked the stage with troupes such as: Circus Artemis, Portland Women’s Circus (which she co-founded in 2009), New Old Time Chautauqua Vaudeville Tour, Girl Circus, and Wanderlust Circus - served as opening/support entertainment for bands such as OK Go, Weird Al Yankovic and Los Straitjackets – and been nabbed as a hot act by big-name clients such as Yahoo!, Google and Ubuntu.
Being a role model for girls and women is of paramount importance to Revolva. That’s why you’ll find her exploding onto the stage with tight technical skills and extra humor, sometimes talking into a mic instead of just doing a beautiful dance, and staying long after the show’s over to chat with any audience members who need to meet a female comedy variety act (a genre often dominated by male performers). Blessed with the super power of creating stories, Revolva continues to travel the world, fusing hoop skills with writing chops to prove that storytelling and the movement arts are a truly dynamic duo.
