Corrina Llopart aka Ms. Coco Blu
Miss Coco Blu started her burlesque journey in 2013. Ms. Blu is self taught dancer, and found burlesque by accident. From the moment she stepped into her first class, it was love at first movement. After 3 years of training and performing, Coco founded the local performing dance troupe Coco's Hen House (True Taos Burlesque).
Burlesque provides a positive outlet for women (and men) to embrace their sensual side on a very different level. It's about feeling safe in your body. As the magnificent Dita Von Teese says ''It's not about seducing men, it's about embracing womanhood.''
