Our Favourite Halloween Burlesque Dancing
We’ve shared our favourite Halloween burlesque makeup tutorials, burlesque costume ideas and Halloween cocktail recipes. Now we’re sharing the headline honeys who have taken a walk on the dark side for Halloween.
Cabaret Roulette: Asylum
This monthly London burlesque show Cabaret Roulette is shaking up the cabaret scene. They showcase a variety of performers, all with different disciplines, who are given two months to create an act based on the theme of each show. The themes are voted for by the audience. Oooh.
This year has seen the Apocalypse, Fairy Tales, Asylum, Dr Who (marketed as Sci Fi), Filth, Superheroes and Myths & Legends. Whilst next month sees Ghost Stories. Each of these are perfect for any Halloween costume.
Copenhagen Grotesque Burlesque
It wouldn’t be a burlesque Halloween without a little grotesque burlesque dancing. This genre of burlesque is becoming increasingly popular with its playful indulgence in darker fantasies.
Copenhagen Grotesque Burlesque is an extravagant fancy dress party and takes place in August. It’s known as a party by artists for artists.
Guests are not only treated to burlesque performances but invited to become part of the spectacle. They have also held the Copenhagen Grotesque Burlesque Vinterfest which takes place in February.
Until then, enjoy the amazing costumes, theatrics and burlesque dancing of Copenhagen Grotesque Burlesque:
Catherine D’Lish Burlesque Dancing
Award-winning burlesque dancer, Catherine D’Lish, paid homage to legend, Zorita. Miss Exotic World 1992 and 1994 is known for her decadent costuming and all-out burlesque performances and this burlesque act is no different.
Burlesque dancing on a spider web has seen a revival in recent years. Burlesque dancers such as Dirty Martini have also given their renditions. Originally performed by Zorita, it is known as the most enchantingly devilish classic burlesque routine.
When Catherine D’Lish performs it, she shows her flexibility and amazing burlesque dancing skills. This act proves why she’s still one of the most coveted burlesque dancers around. See her burlesque dancing at Viva Las Vegas:
