    I Am Becoming Burlesque!

    This is pretty funny... I have never actually been to a real, live burlesque show. However, as part of my plan to come to peace with my body, I am now taking a "Becoming Burlesque" course. This is an 8 week course that teaches you everything about being a burlesque dancer, and...

    It's Business Time

    I just came back from a Burlesque show in which one person performed to Flight of the Conchords "It's Business Time". I think I'm in love.

    Spinning Ribbons

    Burlesque is becoming a lost art, but it is oh so fun.  I love that it is always different and it is way better than ****.  I enjoy song, dance, and interesting costumes.  The place we go to is in the basement of a clocktower and was redone to look like a 1940's...

    Regularly Go To See Burlesque Shows

    My wife and I discovered from a friend that regularly there was a Burlesque show in our town. We went and it was everything we could have expected. The place is small, in a basement, with no more than 100 spectators. The show is a mix of Burlesque acts, songs, comedy. What we...

    Luscious

    Those burlesque girls are so beautiful! I'd give anything to look like one of them. So unique and classy. Artsy enough to be tasteful and still sexy. Just lovely.

    I found this quote yesterday,

    and I believe it resumes quite well why I like this type of act. “Erotica is using a feather; *********** is using the whole chicken.” Isabel Allende. Anyone who has seen a burlesque artist using feather fans will certainly agree like I do.

    My mom used to dance burlesque,

    but gave it up when we were young. She passed the love of it - and the talent for it - on to my two sisters, though.

    Maybe "Like" Is a Better Word.

    It's not all about the striptease either.  It wasn't always associated with striptease, that was actually added later and eventually took over, it seems.

    Burlesque

    I've done it with a troupe a few times and it can be a lot of fun and great to bond with other cool women as well. I love the costumes and themes and dressing up and dancing .. so much fun to be sexy and perform and act and be a little daring and naughty.
