Fall’s Hottest Entertain: Burlesque Shows

Now if you’ve never been to a real Burlesque show, you may have the wrong idea. Burlesque is one of the most beautiful forms of dancing and late night entertainment for adults. While we wouldn’t recommend you take the kiddies to an after hours show, or any such show before the age of 16, for those cosmopolitan 20-80 something’s, it can be the perfect night out.

Normally the prominent theme at a Burlesque show is 1920s flair and fashion. Think Old Fashioned and Manhattan cocktails (possibly even served in a coffee mug for authenticity), short bobbed haired women, loads of pearls, jazz shoes, and Billie Holiday-esque music.

Some burlesque shows only happen a few times a year, like the venue at The Triad Theater, which features dancers from “around the world.” Think Indian Princesses, Spanish Beauties, African Warriors, Hawaiian Hula Dances–all collaborated in a perfectly timed and thoroughly entertaining Burlesque show.

If you’re bringing a date, make sure you dress for the occasion. For men, skinny ties, shiny loafers, fitted slacks, impeccable facial grooming, and slick hair. Ladies, opt for pearls, side hats, jazz shoes with a low heel, and loose dresses that go below the knee. Maybe even add a little garter belt for an evening treat!
