Who’s that girl?


Revolva first hit the stage at age four in a Detroit-area ballet class. After a lifetime of dancing, acting and word slinging (see her writing bio), she added hoops to her repertoire in 2002. Audiences as far away as Europe and Asia have never been the same. While she can blow crowds away away freestyling to live music, she really shines with her signature, over-the-top character numbers. Her mantra? “Funny IS sexy!”


In 2009, Revolva co-founded Circus Artemis: Portland Women’s Circus — which sold out a 400-seat venue for three nights in a row, for its debut run. Here she is (R, pink hair), with the 2010 cast. Girl power!

Revolva has rocked the stage with the New Old Time Chautauqua Vaudeville Tour, served as opening/support entertainment for bands such as OK GoWeird Al Yankovic and Los Straitjackets– and been nabbed as a hot act by big-name clients such as Yahoo, Google and Dreamforce. She has also won the 2010 “Fire Idol” competition at Burning Man, served as a face of Synergy Fire Hoops, won a 2012 international Hoopie Award, and earned The Busking Project’s top pick award in the 2011 “How do you contribute to public space?” contest.

Being a role model for girls and women is of paramount importance to Revolva. That’s why you’ll find her exploding onto the stage with tight technical skills and extra humor, sometimes talking into a mic instead of just doing a beautiful dance, and staying long after the show’s over to chat with any audience members who need to meet a female comedy variety act (a genre often dominated by male performers).

In line with her commitment to empowering women, in 2016, Revolva founded BroadMinded, an all-women-over-40 variety show, to national acclaim. In 2013, she co-organized, co-emceed and performed at One Billion Rising Oakland, an event with over 500-attendees, held on the steps of Oakland’s City Hall, dedicated to raising awareness about sexual violence. In 2009, Revolva co-founded Circus Artemis: Portland Women’s Circus with Shireen Press of Flamebouyant Productions and Kricket Caffery of Peg Stilts. The mission of the circus was to create high-quality circus productions that inspire, amaze, and empower audiences, the wider community, and each other. For several sold-out runs, Circus Artemis did just that.

Blessed with the super power of creating stories, Revolva attempts to use her talent for the greater good. And she continues to travel the world, fusing hoop skills with writing chops to prove that storytelling and the movement arts are a truly dynamic duo.

“A mind-blowing style of virtuosic hooping, well-developed characters, a complete entertainment experience.”
— Zossima Karamazov, The Flying Karamazov Brothers

“An audience favorite, a complete professional and an amazing performer. I’d have her with us every month if I could.”
— Jim “Kingfish” Sweeney, Producer, Hubba Hubba Revue, San Francisco, CA

Her performance spins a story within a whirlwind of sophisticated and fantastic hooping, and she connected with people everywhere we traveled. I can’t say enough about the holistic magic of Revolva.”
— Harry Levine, New Old Time Chautauqua Vaudeville Tour Board of Directors
