Modern burlesque has taken many on forms, but it has the common trait of honoring one or more of burlesque's previous incarnations. The acts tend to put emphasis on style and are sexy rather than sexual. A typical burlesque act may include striptease, expensive or garish costumes, bawdy humor, cabaret and more. Unlike strippers who dance in strip clubs to make a living, burlesque performers often perform for fun and spend more money on costumes, rehearsal, and props than they are compensated. Come join our beautiful performers will may strip down to pasties and g-strings for you.

About our Model: Rubie Laframboise - A member of Glamour Puss Burlesque, the troop has been putting the class back in ass for over three years with their extravagant costuming, over the top theatrics and show stopping dance numbers..
Rubie used to say that she was born in the wrong era. Lately she has been trying to change her perspective by thinking that she is living at exactly the right time - at a time where she can appreciate the beauty, glamour, and exciting talent of decades past, that allows to be the performer that she is today.
