Tassels, satin gloves and glitter will be taking center stage from September 29 through October 2 with The Ninth Annual New York Burlesque Festival. The festival brings four nights of performances from the best of burlesque (see event schedule here) along with classes at The New York School of Burlesque with the industry greats, e.g. Learn “Stunning Stage Presence and Riveting Facial Expressions” with the Reigning Queen of Burlesque 2011, Miss Indigo Blue.
Burlesque acts were America’s most popular form of live entertainment in the first half of the 20th century but the art form has experienced a new renaissance and is at its highest level of popularity since the 1950s, thanks to a new generation of neo-burlesque stars like Dita Von Teese and Michelle L’Amour, who bring a 21st-century touch to the old bump and grind. Who can resist the lovely Dita Von Teese dance down to sparkling pasties and splash around in an onstage bath?
