Burlesque Day

Do you like cabaret dancing? If you like cabaret dancing, then chances are you love burlesque dancing which involves comedians, strippers, and a master of ceremonies. That is the type of entertainment that everyone needs from time to time. There is a day to celebrate that, which is Burlesque Day.

April 26th is the day when you can enjoy some hardcore and energizing entertainment that may be more of the adult kind because it is Burlesque Day. Burlesque entertainment is usually performed in nightclubs and bars, and they can be pretty raunchy, irreverent, glamorous, and satirical. There is no one type of burlesque dancing as it is also queerlesque, boylesque, translesque, and gorelesque. Can you take part in the burlesque dancing? The truth is that anyone can because it is very inclusive.

The great thing about burlesque dancing is that it is a great way to express yourself by showing your true personalities. You can wear costumes that are full of glitter and any other type of extravagant costumes. The one thing that you may even associate with burlesque dancing is the nipple tassels which gets a laugh out of the crowd.

The tradition of burlesque dancing goes back to the 1600s. However, the dance evolved like so many other things. And the subtypes of burlesque dancing are a clear example of that. Think back to how the early burlesque dances compare to the ones you see now. You cannot compare them at all because they are so vastly different. Let’s look further into the history of this day.

The History Of Burlesque Day

The first Burlesque Day took place on April 26th, 2020, during the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, which Sapphira established. She is a showgirl since 2004 who is also a mental health ambassador, author, and Burlesque performer. She did so because she feels that burlesque dancing helped her overcome her mental health disorders and wanted to bring others together virtually so they can find the magic in burlesque dancing. April 26th is the chosen day for the national day to commemorate the passing of a late burlesque performer of the 1930s, Gypsy Rose Lee. She passed away on April 26th, 1970.
