Vancouver burlesque stars Lola Frost, Cherry On-Top, and Burgundy Brixx one year ago had a vision to create something they had been all collectively thinking about. The dream was to build a place to share their burlesque with the world. They dreamed of their own studio where they could teach their own classes on sass. Something most dance studios shy away from, or teach it with instructors who don’t dance burlesque themselves. What these three women offer is more than a dance class. They offer their hearts. Read their schedule to get an idea of what they do. It’s really no joke.
In burlesque, there is a common motto of just going out there and doing it. Since most who hear about the art don’t understand it, most of the time what these woman and men end of having to do, is just doing it. These women did it. One year ago, they created what is now known throughout Vancouver and many other sass filled parts of the world as the Vancouver Burlesque Centre. This night was a celebration of one year of being a fully operational and dancing studio!
Burgundy, Cherry, and Lola are each in their own right all internationally acclaimed stars in burlesque who travel North America to share their talents with audiences.
This night, however, entertainment was provided by 4 students who have been avid supporters of the studio, along with the friends, students, and instructors who all collectively shared their support for the VBC. Every burlesque event I’ve ever attended makes one feel at home, like your with family… perhaps this is the draw to burlesque for most people.
