Burlesque is a term which was used to describe old fashioned variety shows, however, more recently it has been used to refer to a sexier style of show/dance or even strip tease. Burlesque shows are often performed in cabarets, clubs and theaters, and were very popular between the 1860s and 1940s. From the 1990s there has been a revival of burlesque, which can be seen from the movies ‘Chicago’, ‘Moulin Rouge’ and and ‘Burlesque’. There are many burlesque shows still performed in Las Vegas. Burlesque is a theme which can encompass Can Can Girls to Show Girls to Pin Up girls. When dressing for burlesque, less is always more.
