What is burlesque?
A lot of students are unaware of what burlesque is so here is what burlesque is:
Burlesque became extremely popular in the 30's and in wartime. You can act out a play using burlesque with the many different forms including traditional, modern, military, cheeky, etc.
In burlesque, performers often create elaborate sets with lush, colourful costumes, mood-appropriate music, and dramatic lighting. It may also include novelty acts, such as fire-breathing or demonstrations of unusual flexibility, to enhance the impact of performances.
Burlesque is an artform which has now made a come-back with a new exciting and different form of entertainment.
