What's Your Burlesque Name?

Dita Von Teese

When choosing ANY stage name, originality is key! This is particularly important when choosing your seductive, sassy, burlesque name! As tempting as it can be, don't get caught copying off of one of the "it girls" of burlesque. Choose a name that is uniquely yours, and you'll easily shimmy your way through your stripdown studies!

​​Your burlesque name should embody your own brand of confidence and sex appeal. Whether it's physical, emotional or literal, your name should be uniquely YOU. Don't know where to start?
