Burlesque returns to downtown Duncan

Six performers from Nanaimo’s Naughty and Spice Burlesque Troupe are headed south of the border in a few short weeks

But first they will be honing their skills in Duncan.

The dancers are tuning up and raising money for their trip to Burlycon, an annual burlesque convention that attracts some of the most popular burlesque dancers in North America for several days of workshops and seminars.

To help pay for their trip, the troupe will perform at the Duncan Garage Showroom on Oct. 7.

“It’s always exciting to perform in front of a different audience, in a different town,” Naughty and Spice’s Vampish Heart said in a press release. “Duncan has a great vibe that has made an impression on us. We are really glad to be coming back.”

The show will include two 40-minute sets, which will feature both solo and group numbers, with vocalist Infra Red playing hostess for the night.

The show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance, or $20 at the door and are available at Rockabilly Clothing, 10 Old Books bookstore, and online at www.naughtyandspiceburlesque.com.
