Why Doesn’t Houston Have a Burlesque Troupe? – Houston News – Hair Balls

Nice to know we’re not alone here in The Electric City a.k.a Scranton, Pa.

Apparently Houston is likewise sans burlesque as explored in this article published yesterday, largely in response to the release of the major motion picture.

Why Doesn’t Houston Have a Burlesque Troupe? – Houston News – Hair Balls.

I found Lady Grace Academy headmistress Rebecca Hadley’s own personal empowerment story especially intriguing. She explains:

“I know for me, personally, performing and teaching burlesque was a revelation. About seven or eight years ago, I was agoraphobic – I didn’t drive for two years and rarely left my house. So the fact that I am now able to dance in pasties in front of an audience of 300-plus people borders on miraculous. Even better, is that I’m able to stand in front of a room full of women and teach them to love their bodies – no matter what shape, size or age they are. While I love performing, teaching is the ultimate high. And I never would have had the courage to do it, if I hadn’t discovered burlesque. So, long answer short – yes, burlesque is empowering.”
