The word ‘Burlesque’ conjures up images of teasing and flirty dancing with sexy outfits to match. Burlesque dancing shows were extremely popular in the early 1900s as an extreme form of musical theatre. Wearing tight corsetry, lace and silk, Burlesque dancers would perform teasing flirting stripteases to entertain the crowd.

In recent years there has been a definite revival of the Burlesque theme; hen nights, fancy dress parties together with Burlesque shows have all contributed to this increase in popularity.
