Boas and Burlesque: Learning to Shake It in Las Vegas
AIR DATE: October 5, 2011
They might be a shy librarian or housewife at home, but here in Las Vegas, ANYONE can be a burlesque dancer.
For the past 7 months, X Burlesque University has been teaching tourists and locals to perform burlesque. They learn how to decorate G-strings, when to add glitter for a sexy dazzle, and how to shake it onstage. Students come in all sizes and all ages - the oldest dancer was 88. Instructors and students join us to talk about the allure of burlesque, and why boas and pasties actually empower women.
