This is Such a Tassel

Her curvy body moves in unison with the music as her long fingers move up her fully fit fishnet thighs. Her lips are luscious and her hair is done. There's not a man or woman in the room that can take their wide eyes off her acrobatic grace and form. She's confident, passionate, creative and sexy and owns her stage like an artful dominatrix. She is a burlesque dancer. Celebrate the legacy of this artistic movement with the 2011 Dallas Burlesque Festival. Revel in the performances of Ginger Valentine, Black Mariah and Elisa as they showcase their costumes, dancing, comedy and sensuality. Va va voom! A sneak peak teaser show hosted by Violet O'Hara takes place Friday at the Texas Theatre, while the main event goes down Saturday at the House of Blues, 2200 N. Lamar St. Tickets are $20.
