Frequently Asked Questions
So you’ve heard about burlesque, and aren’t quite sure…
What is burlesque?
Burlesque is part theater, part comedy, part storytelling, part stripping- but most importantly- all fun! Burlesque is as American as Jazz, and is a cultural phenomenon, that at its heart, is about celebrating women in all of their forms. Burlesque has a long history in the U.S. and it has many incarnations- and at Viva Dallas Burlesque you will experience all of them- from classic to neo- burlesque, comedic to vaudevillian, we have it all!
