The Movement

We have a three-part mission: To entertain, educate and liberate!

Entertain

Enlivening audiences nationwide, our cabaret shows will have you moving in your seat, as you enjoy our burlesque dancers and receive some deep musicology wisdom. Our theatrics challenge the ways in which the mass media represents race, class, gender, and sexuality, reclaiming our bodies, our stories, and our cultures. Learn more.

Educate

We teach local and online classes through our interactive educational program, The Broad Squad Institute, giving you the opportunity to rediscover that nothing is better than letting your deepest inner diva run wild...except for the power of a community of hot, collaborative, supportive women.

Liberate

Liberate" to the following: "Burlesque starts with the mind. Invite us to your college, university, or event for a private performance and audience-engaging lecture about body image, sex, gender, and race. Learn more.
