Ministry of Burlesque

Learn about gender roles and explore beauty myths as you expand your own identity, with burlesque. Burlesque is a theatrical art-form where we subvert the ‘norms’, challenge the status quo and embrace the unique wonder of every person, all with a sense of humour and style.

Lauded by showbiz luminaries the Ministry of Burlesque are the UK’s premier organisation for burlesque theatre having led the vanguard of the resurgence since 2001 and continuing to ‘raise the barre’ of professional production, performance and education.

From fan-dancing, drag and historical pastiche to striptease and gender blending satire, MoB specialise in both authentic theatrical production and highly-personalised private performance tuition. As such MoB are uniquely placed to uncover hidden stars and help them shine – whether it’s for fun or international platform.
