Usually viewed as a female performance art, burlesque dance is starting to be performed by men.
One of the top male groups is known as 'Boylesque.' They are so popular that they have chapters in major cities like San Francisco and Toronto.
These groups have a growing fanbase of both men and women, proving that burlesque is for everyone.
Implications - The first sign that the founders had found something that people wanted to see was the line that began to form 90 minutes before their first performance. It is far from being a typical choice of entertainment, but with the experimental and open society of today, there is definitely an audience for 'Boylesque.'
