The Great Burlesque Exposition

Our conference attracts performers interested in Burlesque from around the world, as well as an enthusiastic local attendance.  It features dance classes, theater classes, costuming and makeup classes, as well as professional skills such as writing a press release, speaking to the press, and protecting your intellectual property.  It's a great place to learn about a growing art form as well as a good opportunity to grow your business savvy regardless of your performing art of choice.

Our shows are second-to-none, showcasing a wide range of talents and performers.
