Burlesque

This is part of my photography project with the burlesque group, The Lalas. The Lalas, run by choreographer Erin Lamont, are a traveling burlesque group that fuse professional dance with striptease. Despite their striptease, Erin Lamont runs the Lalas like a professional dance company. They rehearse, book venues and perform for a live audience every weekend. Unlike normal strip venues, this is a company owned by a woman and managed by a woman; and in the world of Burlesque striptease, it's the women who call the shots. American Burlesque is an offshoot from Victorian Burlesque but it's transition to striptease started in the United States.
