24 May Take It Off: Burlesque Battle!
Funk vs. R&B vs. Metal and more — get hyped for a seriously epic burlesque dance-off this June!
Three Philly Dance Fitness student groups will headline this sexy summer throwdown at Franky Bradley’s. The June 23 show includes choreographed student group numbers as well as guest appearances from local pro performers and a few improv dance battle interludes!
The professional acts include Ginger Leigh of Peekaboo Revue and Tesla Tease, all the way from Cairo! And the directors of the student routines — Honeytree EvilEye, Kyla Ren and Fiona Firebomb — might just also make a few cameos.
Purchase advance tickets by June 15 to snag a 20 percent early-bird discount! (Note: If you’d like to buy tickets for multiple people, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help you register.) This is a smaller venue than what we have used for our past shows — which all sold out! — so we strongly encourage pre-registering in case tickets are not available at the door.
