Red Hots Burlesque embodies a devil-may-care attitude and swooshy flair that brazenly challenges the media's unrealistic beauty standards. And that particular brand of burlesque has captured the imaginations of The New York Times, Current TV, and Yelp users alike. The outfit celebrates femininity in all its forms and skewers the prudish during their raucous stage shows and private performances. And for aspiring burlesque legends, Red Hots reveals trade secrets during classes at its School of Shimmy. The courses help individuals feel comfortable with their own bodies without the implication that that's only acceptable in the context of a fitness class. They even waive tuition for survivors of breast cancer.
