The balloon dance was a staple of the Golden Age of Burlesque, and any dancer who performed a balloon act was challenge to create a unique one. With this classic bump and grind number, Sailor pays homage to a burlesque tradition that'll have you over a barrel. This piece will certainly make you want to whet your whistle with some of your own "grape juice."

Serenity is a classic fan dance interpretation of the movement of objects in space -- a love song from a ship to her captain.
This act was created for JoJo Stiletto's 2012 edition of Whedonesque Burlesque. Called "breathtaking" by Nerds in Babeland's Kiri Callahan, it can be performed in two versions: one with Joss Whedon context, and one without.

This classic burlesque number is a tribute to Sin City of the 1950s and 1960s -- before Las Vegas became an amusement park. It is an homage to stiff drinks, long nights at the tables, the music of the Rat Pack, and, of course, leggy showgirls. Sailor embodies Lady Luck herself, and you'll most definitely want her by your side all night after this lively strip!
