Fishnets, feathers, and rhinestones

A couple of days ago Justin and I rented A Wink and a Smile, a documentary about modern burlesque dancers. I loved it! I've always had a fascination with burlesque and vaudeville (the costumes, the cute routines...) but now I think I love it even more.

In the film, ten everyday women take a burlesque class. I had no idea such a thing existed! Now I'm frantically looking all over, trying to find a local class (or at least somewhere to see a show...) but with no luck. Why must everything awesome be so far away?

I wonder...what kind of burlesque dancer would I be? Probably a silly one, as I have no coordination. But I would have a fabulous costume! Something flapper inspired...with lots of beads and feather!
