The Aether Salon will host its next topic: Shimmy! To quote the lovely Miss Serafina Puchkina, a hostess of the salon, this topic is about
... a buttoned-up, straight-laced world, where the seamy side is hidden from view by layer upon layer of ... well ... layers, Burlesque is all about peeling away the sham with humor and music. While society goes to great lengths to cover itself, the burlesque stage features the ankles, knees... and gasp! wit of some of the finest (and yes, most scandalous) female performers of the age, dancing, acting, and singing parodies of popular shows.
Please stow your assumptions and join us at the Aether Salon on March 15 for Shimmy! a tasteful tease into the art of burlesque.
Miss Ahnyanka Delphin, owner of The New Champagne Rooms, and Miss Ceejay Writer, dancer/manager at The New Champagne Rooms will join us to discuss the history and art of burlesque. We are very excited to have them with us, and look forward to a lively discussion afterwards.
