Burlesque has been experiencing a revival since the 1990’s. The new version of burlesque, often known as neo-burlesque, has less emphasis on the sexual, and more emphasis on dancing, theatrical, costuming, and other artistic skills with a mix of striptease. The modern burlesque movement allows for more self-expression and critiques on current culture, often utilizing humor.
