Ruby Spruce

Ruby Spruce is the The Attractive Nuisance using fluid dance moves, humor and a good jiggle to create burlesque that human eyes cannot resist. 


The Great Burlesque Exposition awarded Ruby Spruce Most Humorous 2015 for her sidesplittingly sexy Carol Burnett tribute. She has performed in several other burlesque festivals including The Americana Burlesque and Sideshow Festival (2015, 2016 and 2018) and Great Southern Exposure (2015.) 


Ruby Spruce was one of the founding members of the Flip Kittys polesque troupe, and also performed polesque with Balitmore Birdcage in 2011. She taught pole and exotic dance classes at Xpose Fitness for six years where she brought out the inner diva in countless Baltimore area women. With Xpose she helped create the Sexy Stretch class series and created two of The Garter Program evaluations. 


Sprucie has experience on all sides of the theater stage, including award-winning acting.  She has acted and stage managed with Performance Workshop, acted at The Yellow Sign Theatre, was a dance captain for musicals at The Amelia Earhart Theatre and worked the booth at Vagabond Theatre.  


She started fusing theatre and exotic dance into burlesque through Paco Fish’s Act Development series, which culminated in a show in 2013. Since then Sprucie has performed burlesque in shows by Twisted Knickers, S.H.E. Productions, Hot Night Productions, VC Variety, The Weirdo Show, Timeless Tease, Bawdy Shop Burlesque, Brews and Burlesque and Charm City Fringe in venues ranging from her local Baltimore to Shepherdstown, WV, Winchester and Richmond, VA to Washington DC. She has also produced a mini-show of burlesque as part of local fundraiser at Baltimore’s Ottobar.   Gilded Lily Burlesque adder her as their newest member in 2016.


While Sprucie can capture your imagination in a lovely classic act with live music, Ruby Spruce specializes in tickling your brain through your nethers by juxtaposing lithe dancing with unexpected themes.  Her neo-burlesque stuns with evocative imagery and amazing feats of long-limbed hotness.
