The Movement

BGB's mission is to Entertain, Titillate, Educate and Liberate!

Entertain

BGB's shows will have you moving in your seat, as our burlesque dancers break your heart and spark conversation. Learn more.

Titillate

Our theatrics challenge the ways in which the mass media represents race, class, gender, and sexuality, reclaiming our bodies, our stories, and our cultures.

Educate

Designed for women of color, The Broad Squad Institute takes you step by step through creating your first Burlesque in a space of self expression and sisterhood. Learn more.

Liberate

Burlesque starts with the mind. Bring us to your college, university, for shows, lectures and workshops on body image, sex, gender, and race. Learn more.

The Vision

The Vision

Founded in 2007, Brown Girls Burlesque is dedicated to elevating the voices of women of color in the neo-burlesque movement. Our theatrical shows challenge the ways in which the mass media represents race, class, gender, and sexuality, reclaiming our bodies, our stories, and our cultures. BGB shines the spotlight on our own truths and fishnets together a world of women's experiences in a smart and sexy way.
