DANCE AND BURLESQUE ARTIST

  

Cleo Victory (Cleo Halls) is a dance and burlesque artist living and working on unceded Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh territories. An innovative movement storyteller, her work pushes boundaries and combines artistic disciplines. Her signature style blends contemporary dance technique, bold sensuality, and a deliberate playful silliness that juxtaposes profoundly personal themes. 


Cleo is deeply passionate about creating work that celebrates and elevates the feminine. Her work explores female and femme sexuality through a distinctly queer lens. With the intention of empowering women both on and off stage, Cleo uses dance as a medium for reclaiming femininity.


Cleo is a graduate of both MacEwan University's Theatre Arts program and The Dance Initiative professional training program. Select stage credits from her eight years as a professional performer include appearances with The Lovers Cabaret, The Gold Fever Follies, Zynth and Co, Esoteric Bazaar, Iron Mountain Theatre, La Maison Lust, Vancouver Burlesque Co., April O'Peel Productions, Wet Coast Burlesque, Gogo Bungalow, and The Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret. Cleo is also a dedicated dance educator with students of all ages. Her teaching credits include Vancouver Burlesque Co, Ballet BC, Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, and numerous dance studios and community centres throughout the Lower Mainland. 

Cleo is available for dance classes, burlesque classes, private coaching and live performance bookings.
