About Ruthless

Ruthless Retribution has worked both Vermont nightlife and haunts since 2012; starting with Green Mountain Cabaret production board, crew, then cast by 2016. Ruthless left GMNC in 2021 to open RevolVT, a co-owned pole dance and movement studio focusing on inclusion. In 2023, Ruthless joined Grimm’s Domain, brainchild of Grimm Noir, to create productions to bring pole dance, burlesque, drag and other performance art around the state of Vermont, with a focus on the BIPOC LGBTQIA community. Currently, Ruthless Retribution co-produces and performs with Grimm’s Domain, co-owns and teaches at RevolVT, bringing brown, buxom and bad ass to Vermont and beyond through pole, burlesque, and striptease.
