Baby, it’s cold outside. What better way to heat things up than by taking in the titillating talents on display at the Vermont Burlesque Festival? Headliners Blanche DeBris, Michelle L’Amour (pictured), Scarlett James and the House of LeMay lead a luscious lineup of local, national and international performers set to sashay across stages in Burlington and Barre. The steamy soirée starts with a bang at ArtsRiot, where audience members are treated to a ceremonial toast and a burlesque and comedy showcase. Temperatures continue to rise as performances both nerdy and naughty unfold at Hilton Burlington. Want to get in on the action? Put your best foot forward in a variety of classes taught by headliners and area instructors.
