Oh! Burlesque

There is a fine line between sexy and smutty. And so while I have a hard time with strippers, I adore burlesque. Perhaps it’s all the feathers, glitter, and bling. Or perhaps its the music. No matter, I am a fan of burlesque because it requires the performers to have a sophisticated persona and be decent dancers. More than that, they don’t give it all up. Ever.

So, here are some burlesque clips. They do have the dancers down to their (very small) knickers, so if that’s not up your alley, this just isn’t the post for you.

You can see a live burlesque show here in Houston at the Houston Burlesque Revue on August 9th. More information here.
