When Dixie Ramone discovers the magic world of burlesque it's love at first sight!
Burlesque is where anything can happen, it's total freedom!
Her name derives from her favorite band, ‘The Ramones’ and it reflects her character: energetic, explosive, rebellious.
The story of Dixie has as main theme her passion for dancing, food for her soul. Going from ballet to belly dance, with twisting routes between afro, contemporary, tap dance, you name it, Dixie Ramone is a mixture of styles so different from one another that makes her absolutely impossible to classify.
Her style is fizzy, elegant and very personal, a crackling mix of a punk spirit and a dancer's moves. A variegated personality and a multitude of interests multiplied by an insatiable curiosity make Dixie a performer that will make you taste exotic flavors but also refined classics seasoned with a good dose of inevitable and inescapable punk rock!
She has performed all over Europe, in the USA and Australia, and has been teaching for many years. The famous, marvelous and unique Micca Club in Rome, cradle of the best Italian burlesque was her second home where for years she was its top performer and teacher of the ‘Accademia del Burlesque’, first burlesque school in Italy.
She was the teacher of “Lady Burlesque”, the first and only talent show about burlesque that was shown on SKY UNO TV in 2011 and has appeared three years in a row in the top 50 burlesque performers list by 21st Century Magazine and in the Top 10 european based performer list 2013.
Dixie works as model for photos: “Burledies" by Giovanni Cocco, "Burlesque" by Guido Laudani and "Burlesque, l'ironica seduzione dell'amore" by Marco Girolami; she’s in the 2012 calendar "Girls and US legendary cars" by Carlos Kella, published by Sway Books, in “The Kingdom” and “The Empress” where photographer Valentino Varan Vesarach followed her and the entire troupe through a tour in Western Australia, and proudly in interesting works by the talented Italian photographer Turi Avola, like “Excessus Mentis”.
Dixie has a huge passion for music too and sings and headlines in a punk band.
A pioneer in her country!
Erotik, exotik, psychotik!
