Clara Coquette

P R O F E S S I O N A L B I O G R A P H Y

Clara Coquette is a New York City based burlesque and drag performer, producer, and model who was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan.  She is a vintage vixen, a nimble nerd, and a cunning chameleon. She moved to New York in 2009 and stumbled upon the glamorous, glittery, and geeky world of burlesque.  She has trained at the New York School of Burlesque and Burlycon. Clara made her performing debut in 2011 and has been balancing burlesque with her full time career in medical science research ever since.  Clara is the producer of The Guild of Libidinous Intent: A Burlesque Tribute to the Venture Bros., A Dream Within A Dream: A Burlesque Tribute to Edgar Allan Poe, and The People’s Playground: A Tribute to the History of Coney Island as well as a co-producer of The Persistence of Nudity: A Burlesque Tribute to Salvador Dali.  Born out of a test tube of sparkle and spunk, Clara Coquette.
