Burlesque dancers to help out Cranbrook roller derby
Derby Mashes with Burlesque-The Mountain Town Maulers, Cranbrook Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby team is presenting Sweet Soul Burlesque at the Key City Theatre Saturday March 24 2012 at 8pm.
The Mountain Town Maulers are bringing the Dance Troupe to Cranbrook as a fundraising event. The Maulers are raising funds for uniforms, practice space and a portable derby track.
Sweet Soul Burlesque is Western Canada’s longest running professional neo-burlesque troupe. Founded in 2003 out of a passion for the genuine DIY pin-up girl culture, Sweet Soul strives to raise the bar by creating fun, ground-breaking burlesque performances that are of unequaled production value. From ribbon staffs to giant Venus fly traps to fire tricks to life-sized jack-in-the boxes, each Sweet Soul dancer (Cara Milk, Cherry OnTop, Crystal Precious, Little Miss Risk, Lola Frost & Rita Star) has spent years individually crafting her own persona & performance style. Get ready for a vibrant mash-up of classic striptease with elements of hip hop, underground dance culture & punk rock. Since their inception, Sweet Soul Burlesque has quickly become internationally renowned and has been featured in the Globe & Mail, CBC Television and Radio, Fashion TV, Much Music & MTV and has appeared at hundreds of events & festivals across the continent, from the Pemberton Music Festival to the New York Burlesque Festival. In 2010 they were honored with a nomination for World’s Best Troupe at the International Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas.
An after party is to be held at Dewey’s Pub where everyone can mingle with the Derby Girls and the Burlesque Dancers while listening to some fantastic live music.
Tickets for the Burlesque Show are $25, available at the Key City Box Office or charge by phone
