Burlesque is officially the best form of evening entertainment.
Hofstra’s burlesque show on April 25th at Hofstra USA was a blast. This year, the company sent us two boylesque dancers. I knew they existed, but boy was I in for a treat!
Most of the things I had to say about the show are in my audio slideshow below.
The talent for the evening included British host/balloon twister Kenwyn Dapo, Peekaboo Pointe, Topher Bousquet (aka “The Most Bendable Boy of Burlesque”), Poppy Tart, and Chris Harder.
I couldn’t tell which amazed me more: the balloon twisting, the merman contortionist or the “Chicken Licken” routine.
My favorite performance of the evening was Peekaboo Pointe’s Gatsby-esque routine.
Her costume looked like something straight out of Jordan Baker’s closet. Her pearls were simply stunning.
Overall it was a great night. I still can’t believe it was only $3!
