Wichita Burlesque is a theatrical dance troupe that strives to bring a highly artistic, sexually charged and empowering art form back to Wichita. With building self-confidence, welcoming diversity and having fun as our main group goals, we intend to give back to the community with fundraising and donations prominently going toward the women’s shelters in the Wichita area.
Burlesque was an Italian art form before being adopted by the French, who molded burlesque into what you may know of it, today. Derived from the Latin word burra, or "trifle", the original acts were musical and theatrical parody & very much about social commentary.
It wasn't until the 20th century American performances that striptease became associated with the word "burlesque", & adult entertainment became the driving force of these shows, though certainly 1890's Paris and the Moulin Rouge were where burlesque stripping was born.
Today as it was in the early 20th century vaudeville performances, burlesque is as much about the wit and humor of the tease, as it is about the tease itself. In recent years, large cities across the nation have seen a resurgence in interest for this very snarky, very sexy art form. This is "stripping even your wife would enjoy".
