Aurora Black is known as "The Prima Ballerina of Burlesque". She is a professional, classically trained ballet dancer who creates innovative burlesque routines using her exceptional dance skills.
She has many acts to suit all tastes, and can customize acts and entertainment for any event. She is also available to teach burlesque and ballet classes.
I have had the pleasure of working with Aurora twice, on two very different occasions. One was for a bachelorette party, where she was kind enough to follow her flawless act with a quick and fun lesson for the girls. The second time was for a huge work event for over 400 people. Every detail of each performance was specially tailored to fit the audience and occasion.
Aurora was extremely professional, highly communicative, and went above and beyond each time to make sure each performance looked perfect and felt special. It was clear while working with her, that she wanted nothing more than to help make the event spectacular - and she did just that! Each time she performed she MADE the party. She's engaging, a beautiful ballet dancer, and true entertainer. She knows how to quickly feel out a room and perform for her audience the way only great entertainers know how to.
The fact that she is also a highly talented ballerina is what makes her performance even more unique and impressive. Her costumes are also extravagant, very detailed, and beautiful. She's the perfect combination of classy and sexy.
I could go on and on, but I will end with this - I highly recommend Aurora for any special occasion you want to make especially memorable and fun!
Aurora was talented and classy. Everyone enjoyed her performance. I've never see a burlesque dancer on pointe. It was a completely unique performance. I would hire her again in a heartbeat. She was veyr professional and was very open minded in terms of what she would perform.
Wow, how to begin this review. Aurora made the birthday party. My girlfriend hired her for me as a surprise. I was completely shocked and boy was I in for a treat! From the music, to the performance, everything was thought out. Everyone was extremely jealous that she also gave me a lapdance. Aurora was classy, talented and friendly. She even stayed to talk to my friends. I would highly recommend her!! I never saw a burlesque show featuring a ballerina. She will be the highlight of any party!!

What to Expect
Aurora Black is a bona fide ballerina with serious dancing chops (and nice curves, we might add) who creates evocative, entertaining, glamorous, and exciting burlesque dance routines. She performs acts inspired by classical ballets as well as classic and neo burlesque acts. There is nothing quite like the work Aurora performs.
Review from Dead Dream Machine: "If Schmalenberger’s Impresario is the master of ceremonies, Aurora Black, who plays the Nightmare Dancer is the lifeblood of the play. Her talent, poise and striking stage presence lifts the play to unexpected heights."

"Emotionally, my senses could have easily been transported from this dark and dingy nightclub to Swan Lake at the New York City Ballet.... Aurora is the Prima Ballerina of burlesque."
"Aurora has a magnificent line, and her passion and grace brought tears to my eyes (So did her perfectly chiseled derrire – bitch)."

Additional Booking Notes
I usually bring an escort/assistant to help with my costume and personal items.
Aurora has classic burlesque acts (fan dances, classic corset and stocking striptease, etc.), Classical ballet made into burlesque ballet pieces (Arabian Coffee from The Nutcracker and Aurora's Variation from Sleeping Beauty), and edgier, dirtier acts set to pop or contemporary music. She has also created group dance numbers that are available for events.
Custom acts can be created upon request, and audience participation is also an element of some of Aurora's acts. For birthdays, bachelorette, and bachelor parties, she definitely likes to get the birthday boy/girl, bachelor, or bachelorette "involved" in the act. This adds a fun element of surprise and excitement to the party.
Aurora teaches the following types of classes for private events. Burlesque routines and choreography can be incorporated for a longer class:
Incorporating striptease into dance choreography (advanced dancers only)
Feather Fan Dance
Clean, dry stage area appropriate for dance
Private dressing area
