Too Darn Hot! A Celebration of 150 Years of Burlesque

Join the Worcester Pop Up and local burlesque dancer Lady LaRouge for a day celebrating BURLESQUE!

"What is burlesque?" you ask -
In the beginning part of the afternoon, Hedonistic {Her}story, we will dive deep into the
history of the art form, famous dancers, bedazzling costumes, and how these scintillating performances
fit into American culture over the past 150 years.
This presentation will include LOTS of links to Worcester's ever-thriving theatre scene!

After our submersion into the history side,
Lady LaRouge will lead a workshop teaching attendees the basic bump n' grind moves in Daring Dancing: Burlesque 101
NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY
ALL GENDERS, SIZES, etc WELCOME, BURLESQUE IS FOR EVERYONE!
However, if you're staying to dance, please dress comfortably & bring a water bottle.

Come to one or both sections to celebrate 150 years of "sin - inducing wriggles."
