Elements of Burlesque Dancing

Originally, burlesque shows were meant to be a mockery of traditions. They served as an entertainment at various festivals and cabarets and every performance told a specific story that made fun of some social phenomenon.

Over the years this type of performance evolved into the sensual and dynamic form of dance that we know today. It often includes elements of striptease, but doesn’t progress to outright nudity. Performers often use various props to make the show more fascinating.

The most common ‘tools of the trade’ found in burlesque shows in Toronto include:

  • Shimmy fringes to accentuate the hip movements of dancers.
  • Pasties that prevent full-frontal nudity and complement the ‘image’ the performer maintains during the show.
  • Elbow-length gloves  as they look great and peeling them off slowly is a show in itself.
  • Boas, feathers, and fans that allow making the dance more entertaining.

Note that burlesque dancing isn’t restricted to women. Nowadays, there is ‘boylesque’, which is a kind of burlesque show performed by men. This style has been gaining popularity and expanding the limits of the burlesque by introducing new amazing elements and creating fantastic shows.

We at Hips Don’t Lie Dance Co. believe that burlesque dancing should be focused on natural beauty and grace. Combine them with energizing rhythms, fantastic costumes, and creative props and you’ll get a burlesque show Toronto audience will fall in love with.
