5. Coco Lectric
At No. 5, beautiful Texan temptress Coco Lectric; a classically trained dancer, singer and actor, a founding member of the Jigglewatts, and the headmistress of The Austin Academy of Burlesque. She also co-produces the Texas Burlesque Festival.
Coco performs with charm, confidence and purpose in every movement and gesture. Every smouldering stare and dazzling megawatt smile leaves you in no doubt that she lives for the stage, loves what she does, and means business. In one act you are in on the joke and enjoying Coco’s sense of humour, in another she dazzles you with her poise and grace, and in another she could positively eat you alive in a devastating seduction.
Coco’s 2012 credits include the Dallas Burlesque Festival, the 1st Annual San Antonio Burlesque Festival, the Windy City Burlesque Festival, the Texas Burlesque Festival, Tease-O-Rama, the New Orleans Burlesque Festival, and competing for the title at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend. She also taught two seductive sessions at BurlyCon.
