Show me how to Burlesque

by candicekaye

Despite all of the stereotypes, past and present, Burlesque represents a woman in her own motivations and limits. Christina Aguilera’s Burlesque is a 21st century example of the magic that took place during the Golden Age where Burlesque was performed in theaters with elaborate sets and full orchestras. In the 50’s burlesque’s setting shifted from theaters to nightclubs, which rapidly cheapened its quality. Arguilera’s Burlesque puts aside the “modern day nude” accompanied with the striptease, feathered fans, and pearls and focuses on the beauty of burlesque’s desire and charm which has been lost. If you haven’t seen this movie pinkandblousy highly recommends it. Heres a clip of one of my favourite scenes. Show me how to Burlesque.
