DRAFT: Take It Off Broadway: A Burlesque Variety Show

Burlesque. Dance. Drag. Debauchery. And, of course, Broadway.

If you love any or all of the above, you cannot miss our upcoming “Take It Off Broadway” show! We’ve teamed up with renowned local burlesque producer HoneyTree EvilEye (who also happens to be one of our long-standing and amazing instructors!) to present this  Broadway-themed collaboration featuring burlesque, jazz, drag, live singing and more.

Lulu Lenore

The November 17th show, taking place at Ruba Club in Northern Liberties, will combine choreographed group dance numbers, performed by Philly Dance Fitness students and staff, as well as original pieces created by local burlesque, drag and music stars. This diverse lineup brings together two communities over a shared love of musical theater.

The professional cast includes internationally touring choreographer and dancer Kemar Jewel, known for his viral “Voguing Train” and “Vogue Ball Tango” videos, award winning burlesque queens Lelu Lenore and Renee Rebelle of Maison Rose, Glitter & Garbage cabaret singer Shannon Turner and several more celebrated Philly performers like Sven Inches, Maxxie Ford, Kyla Ren, Fiona Firebomb and Deadb0y IX, as well as HoneyTree EvilEye.

Renee Rebelle

Their pieces take inspiration from ChicagoCompany, HairHedwig and the Angry Inch, Cabaret and more.
