Soon the hotel will be overrun with tassels, tattooed beauties & more hairspray than a Toddlers & Tiaras episode. It’s the 5th Annual Toronto Burlesque Festival and it’s grown to epic proportions. We’re proud to be the host hotel and have events happening Thurs & Fri nights as well as a performer brunch on Saturday morning.
Buy tickets in advance NOW because they’re sure to sell out.
One of the highlights of the weekend will be a performance by Gravity Plays Favorites (Michelle Mynx and Katrina Dohl) on Thursday night. While this is their fourth appearance at the Festival it’s will be their first here at the hotel! This pole-dancing duo from St. Louis will be sponsored by Aradia Fitness Oakville and will be teaching workshops here on Saturday, July 21 as part of Burlesque University.
Making her Canadian debut will be Kristina Nekyia from Hollywood, CA who is a contortionist/performance artist/burlesque and belly dancer. She’s a busy lady and is flying in from St. Louis and flying out to Prague for work after the Fest! Catch her Thursday night.
Also appearing will be our local favorites Skin Tight Outta Sight & BoylesqueTo as well as visiting babes Michelle L’amour & Roxi Dlite, both of whom have won the title of “Queen of Burlesque” in Las Vegas.
