Burlesque is so much more than it seems and is certainly much more than taking your clothes off. The history of burlesque and all of its queens are endless and there is so much you can read and learn about. It truly is an art form and is certainly a very interesting subject to research about. I think you would surprise yourself with what you will learn ……..
Contemporary burlesque has evolved from those basic origins into 3 main categories:
Cabaret, Striptease, and Traditional Burlesque.
Epitomised in French chorus line shows like Moulin Rouge or the Lido where glamour and grace are the main attractions and there is hardly ever a striptease, as most of the dancers appear topless, to begin with.
Also very glamorous. Dita Von Tease is an excellent example of his kind of burlesque: The focus is on the gorgeous and expensive props and costumes, and how well she uses and loses them.
h3. Traditional Burlesque
The favourite in the UK. This kind of burlesque is about humorous social satire, whether obvious or not. Each act relies on a story; if the performer strips, it’s because the character or the situation requires it.
Within the past few years there has been a robust eruption of the Burlesque. Dita Van Teese is very well known in the world or Burlesque. She has brought back the art in a special way that no one else could.
