Ready for some tassels, corsets and fishnets? Then head to the Capital City Cabaret on October 13, where there will undoubtedly be plenty of burlesque performances for you to choose from. While those who travel to Ontario may not expect Ottawa to have a cabaret scene, the Vaudevillian performances in the Canadian capital are wildly entertaining and a perfect nighttime activity for adults wanting a truly offbeat experience.
Get ready to get dazzled
Guests staying at Ottawa accommodations should be fully prepared to dress to impress and take their time when choosing the perfect outfit. While visitors shouldn't feel obligated to go all out and don burlesque fashions, they should treat the event as though they're attending a chic soiree or a cocktail party. Once they're ready to go, travellers should get ready to be dazzled by the Great White North's best burlesque, boylesque and Vaudevillian entertainment.
Not only will there be comedy shows, belly dancing performances and drag queens, but visitors will also see impressive hula hoopers, singers and even jugglers.
If Mz Kitty DeMure's professional name is any indication to how she performs, then visitors will definitely have their fair share of raucous entertainment as she slinks her way across the stage. Mz Kitty's performances are rich with personality and cute edginess that will completely change anyone's views about the burlesque scene.
Mystic Myron will be this year's featured hoop dancer, and his talents are nothing to be overlooked. His saucy moves have impressed even the most skeptical audience members and he definitely knows how to get a crowd riled up.
Where to warm up
Before heading to the Saint Brigid's Centre for the Arts, where all of the performances will take place this year, travellers may want to have a few drinks at a nearby bar to get themselves prepared for a night filled with entertainment. Sotto is the perfect spot to grab decadent cocktails fit for burlesque lovers who travel through Canada for an unforgettable holiday. With a live DJ every night, patrons can practise their very own burlesque moves before attending the wild performances.
