Burlesque in Vancouver has recently surged in popularity, with weekly shows and monthly extravaganzas put on by world-famous performers. To top it all off, there’s even an annual International Burlesque Festival (in May) that brings performers from all over the world to shake their ta-tas in our beautiful city.
So, what’s the draw? Why are hundreds of Vancouverites flocking to the weekly and monthly burlesque shows that are taking place in venues across the city? Simple. Burlesque is fun, flirty, sexy, and a little geeky all at the same time. It’s different from simply seeing a stripper, and it is an entertaining and empowering scene that is thriving in Vancouver.
