Response from Ruby Joule Burlesque:
Thank you so much! What a great group of folks-- it was a pleasure working with you. -Ruby
She took her top off, but she knocked our socks off with an amazing, beautiful and sexy show. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about how great it was. What an entertainer, a beauty and all around sweet gal. We loved having her share in our special day.
Ruby Joule was the ruby red cherry on top of our event. The perfect performer to help push our event over the top. The audience loved her. I would highly recommend Ruby Joule for your burlesque entertainment needs.
Miss Ruby Joule is outstanding. She was very professional, courteous, thoughtful, and above all, a wonderful performer!
Ruby was very swift in her correspondence and forthcoming with great ideas. As to her performance, she is a true burlesque artist and made sure to be warm and welcoming to everyone. This party was for my aging father who is currently a chemo patient, and she was very kind and accommodating. He is a WWII buff, and her 40's pin-up style act was perfect. She was a fantastic surprise and really made his day! He could not stop talking about her!
Thank you Ruby!!! Job well done! Kudos!!

Thank you so much, Maria. It was a joy getting to meet you and your family; I'm so happy I could be a part of this celebration! -Ruby
Ruby Joule exceeded my expectations for our Company Holiday Party. She captured everyones attention with her Talent and Style. She mixed and mingle with our guest and has a friendly charismatic personality that made everyone feel welcomed.
My troupe worked with Ruby this Summer for our show. She was available and prompt in responding to pre-show messaging, a fabulous performer on stage, and a wonderful teacher the day after.
I have seen Ruby Joule several times, but my favorite performance was in Dallas, for La Divina Productions at the Penthouse of the Stoneleigh Hotel Showroom. She did her Champagne Taste routine and it was spectacular. Ruby Joule is among a handful of elite burlesque performers in the United States that have moved modern burlesque from the fringe to the mainstream market. Ruby is a classically trained dancer which makes her performances flawlessly choreographed. Her routines can be adapted to any event and any audience. Ruby is personally charming and stunningly beautiful both on the poster and in person. If you need to add a touch of elegant sensuality to any event, hire Ruby Joule.
I met Ruby Joule over 4 years ago at the Texas Theater in the very first Texas Burlesque Festival held in Dallas, Texas. Her performance just blew me away and her attention to details goes way beyond as far as the elaborate costumes and chorography. I would not hesitate to hire her for any level of entertainment whether it be a private party or a full scale theatrical event.
