Twerking isn’t just a way for pop stars to get their music videos censored and inevitably making them go viral and become internet must-sees. Oh no! Burlesque dancers can do it too, as Sweetpea shows at this burlesque festival.
Sweetpea Twerking at Burlesque Festival
The world went crazy after Robin Thicke notoriously teamed up with Miley Cyrus at the VMAs. It opened many discussions on sexuality, shock-tactics and ‘what is art?‘. Lets not even get started on the ‘Wrecking Ball‘ video.
Fortunately for you beautiful people, we’re no different. We love a viral dance craze just as much as the next infantilized blogger but we like to take a little burlesque twist on things. Enter Sweetpea burlesque dancing.
Since 2012 Sweetpea has been the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender, Titans of Tease producer. Now that’s a title. As we also announced in June, Sweetpea won the award for ‘Most Dazzling’ at Tournament of Tease 2013. We cannot wait for her video to appear on the new BHoF video channel.
Sweetpea is known for her ass twerking and cleavage shimmying and as you can see, she has been pretty successful with it. The ‘Most Dazzling’ award has been won by the likes of Perle Noire in 2012 and Kalani Kokonuts in 2009 when she also won Miss Exotic World.
The above video sees Sweetpea doing her thang at Best of Midwest Burlesk Festival. This burlesque routine sees her combine a classic burlesque costume with her twerking dance moves.

Burlexe is a sensational London burlesque show inspired by the women who created the genre and perform the art. It fuses burlesque performance with storytelling, dancing with acting.
