This website was created in response to the numerous questions that I was getting on a regular basis from Edmontonians who had no idea we had a thriving burlesque scene in Edmonton. What!!? I realized there was a huge need for a central place where people could come to find out what's happening in the #yegburlesque community.

The Edmonton Burlesque community is like so many of Edmonton's arts scenes: once you've opened the door you become aware that it's prolific, but until then you might not even know the door exists! We tend to be a city so busy creating that sometimes we forget to share the magnificent things we're doing.

We have SO much talent in the #yegburlesque scene, with shows being produced every month. Find out more about upcoming events on the Events page or go through our list of burlesque organizations and performers on the About our Community page.

I welcome you with great delight to this glittery world of theatre, (under) boob celebration, parody and activist art.
