A new Los Angeles based burlesque troupe is having open auditions for new performers. Our troupe is updating the art of burlesque for the 21st Century. Much more than polished strip-tease, we believe that modern performers should not be limited by the music and moves of the past, but should be able to bring their own style to art.
In this round of auditions, we're seeking performers (male and female) with a background in dance, with some exerience in strip tease preferred. Examples are:
- Hip Hop
- Swing/Lindy hop with Aerials
- Acro Dance
