Striptease Burlesque Acts
Get ready for your burlesque cherry to be popped with a POW in Gilda’s newest 50′s themed act! Starting with a retro balloon pop, then on to a rockin’ striptease to knock your socks off, culminating with a variety of tassel-twirling fabulousness… so greasers, Ivy Leaguers, squares and cool cats alike, fire up your engines, and let’s get ready to rumble!
Set in the early 1900′s, this act is a twist on Loie Fuller’s “La Serpentine” dance combined with Mata Hari-styled exotic striptease! With a never-before-seen costume piece made out of glass, Gilda embodies the Art Nouveau movement with vaudevillian flare.
Pamper your audience with Gilda’s signature act, a masterpiece composed of a 1930′s glamourous Hollywood-stye striptease, embodying the utmost in luxury and supreme sensuality. To extend the tease, ask Gilda to add a fan dance with her giant ostrich feather fans.
Non-striptease Cabaret Acts
“American Showgirl in Paris”
Think PINK with this beautiful showgirl-style fan dance, performed with 5 ft wide ostrich feather fans. Best performed in a venue with high ceilings for maximum fan manoeuvrability. See below for Gilda Lily’s non-striptease “American Showgirl in Paris” act (thank you to Loraine Ross Photography for filming!).
Gilda’s recreation of Liza Minnelli’s stellar non-striptease chair performance as Sally Bowles in “Cabaret”. See below for video, and thank you to Dom Bower Photography for the footage!
