State of Undress: Burlesque & Drag Listings 2.3-.2..08


By Angie Z.

Hey Kittens! Here are your chances to catch your favorite showpeople in action this week. Along with your regularly scheduled entertainment, this week's goodies include a special guest teacher at The New Orleans School of Burlesque, Miss Peekaboo Pointe. (Photo by  Ben Trivett.) I'd also like to say "Hail, Queen Trixie!" Our very own burlesque lady, Trixie Minx, rode as "Empress of The Insane and Captain of New Orleans" in this last weekend's krewedelusion parade.  This was a perfect kickoff to my first Mardis Gras in New Orleans, and a wide, high-heeled step for all burlesquekind. 

 

Pointe, a NYC based, classically trained dancer has been listed in the 21st Century Burlesque Magazine's "Burlesque Top 50" multiple times. She has also received Golden Pasties as "The Most Sensual Performer" and "Sexiest Shimmy and Coolest Quake," and has headlined burlesque festivals all over the world. She will be divulging her secrets of the booty that always leave the audience mesmerized so that you can take 'em to the stage of your choice, or home to put any viewer in a trance. Classes are presented at the Crescent Lotus Studios on 2.03 at 4:45 PM and 2.04 at 7 PM. Come to one or both classes, as there will be unique choreography and booty magic to be gleaned on both nights.

 

I hope to see you out supporting one of the many things that makes your city sparkle and shine like a Swarovski encrusted merkin (look it up, thank me later.)
