Lucy Dickhardo is charmingly sexy, with a twist of cheekiness, and topped with flamboyant facial expressions. She considers herself a protégé of Lucille Ball. Lucy likes to use humor and props to flirt with the audience. Perhaps a little lewd, maybe even a little crude – Lucy enjoys a good stiff drink and isn’t shy about sharing her signature ‘squat’ when she takes a swig from a bottle. She is sure to please, tease and entertain. Lucy has been having fun with burlesque since 2015 when she attended her first class with the Rosebud Burlesque Academy with Head Mistress Cheri Poppurr. She has also taken a number of other classes including Level 2/Continued Studies, Improv/character development, Debutant Prep Class, and Group Routines. Since 2018, she has performed at the following shows/events: Rosebud Debutant Ball; Rosebud Variety Show Back-To-School Edition, Somewhat Clean Bingo Fundraiser for Free Flow Dane Centre; Miss Education Burlesque Training Weekend; Rosebud’s “Peek-A-Boo” Halloween Show; Rosebud Spring Show, Rosebud XXXmas Spectacular. Lucy was a maid/kitten at the Saskatoon International Burlesque Festival (Frisky Friday) in October 2019 and she is excited to be performing at the SIBF in 2021!
