My Rating: 5/5
Author: Jo Weldon
If you are curious but know very little about the mystical world of burlesque dancing, look no further! For there is no better book to introduce you into the fabulous art of teasing on stage than The Burlesque Handbook by a star performer herself!
Jo Weldon’s excellent handbook covers the basic moves and props when preforming a burlesque routine. This is an excellent how-to book, not so much about the history and political issues surrounding burlesque.
All the same, I easily gave this book five stars for it’s entertaining and easy to follow guides when it comes to dance moves and positions, props, DIY costume ideas and so much more! Weldon includes many pictures and photos to help illustrate her points.
The Burlesque Handbook is without a doubt a must have for anybody who is interested in becoming a burlesque performer.
