Video Submission
Along with your questionnaire, please submit 1-3 videos of burlesque acts that highlight your strengths.

Videos do not have to be professional quality, just good enough to show what you're doing, hear the music, etc.

Cell-phone footage in a dance studio is fine, it doesn't have to be a live performance with an audience. But it should be performed as if there were an audience with you giving it your all 100%.

Please wear full costume and makeup, with any applicable props or set pieces for your video submissions.

If possible, we would like to see contrasting styles of burlesque.

What do we mean by "contrasting styles?"


classic vs. neo-burlesque
comedy vs. sexy
high-energy vs. slow and slinky
bump n grind vs. nerdlesque
horror vs. dance-heavy

etc etc

Show us your best acts that display different assets: your acting chops, your sweet dance moves, your sense of humor, your smoldering seduction, your epic costuming skills, whatever you've got!
