When some people think of burlesque shows, they imagine sexy dancers stripping. However, burlesque is more than just striptease—the term refers to a range of performance styles and the art form as a whole. Performers construct their own unique personas and artfully reveal them to the audience. While they are not strictly dancers, these performers have the rhythm, skill, and charisma to rouse your emotions.
