Cin City Burlesque - The home of Cincinnati's premier peelers!
Formed in 2009, Cin City Burlesque is Cincinnati's premier troupe of classic and neo-burlesque dancers. Voted Best Burlesque Troupe by the Ohio Burlesque Festival in 2012, and Best Performance Artist in Cincinnati by RAW Artists, Cin City specializes in many styles of dance, including jazz, latin, ballroom, ballet, tap, belly, contemporary, go-go and more. With a staff of 8-12 dancers, acts can be anything from sexy and thoughtful to funny and satirical. Shows can range from steamy and provocative to downright silly depending on the location and clientele, but they are always performed with class and sass.
This was first class entertainment : beautiful dancing, hilarious comedy, friendly crowd. I really can't express how much I enjoyed the experience but I will say that I will be back for every show. It was worth every minute of my time and every cent spent! I ADORE Cin City Burlesque!
What an incredible show. It's no wonder CCB is among the best in the nation. Dazzled by the sparkling beauty. And Sweett Biscut! Brilliant and classy. FAF (funny and fabulous). Thank you so much for bringing such reverence to the sacred feminine and so much laughter to the world. I will continue to rave about CCB!
This was my first time to a Burlesque show and I loved it. I was also very pleased that they were able to raise money for a local charity as well. I will definitely be going to more shows.
My girlfriends and I attended the Season's Teasing Show and had an amazing time. The ladies and gent were sexy, funny, and very entertaining. I'm happy that they were able to raise money for their charity while showing an amazing crowd a great time. Best of all, they showed how sexy and gorgeous women of all shapes and age can be.
The best troupe you'll ever find. Also the most personable one too! They are amazing women that live their craft and it shows in their perfomance. Also the best MC money can buy!! I would highly recommend seeing them if you have the opportunity.
The talented Cin City Burlesque troupe never ceases to amaze me. The choreography, the music, the humor, the beauty!! The shows keep getting better and better. They have added two new girls, Margeaux Rita and Poppi Tart who fit right in...beautiful and talented. The MC is funny and never misses a beat. The troupe's "bosslady", Ginger LeSnapps is amazingly talented, beautiful, disciplined, and should be thanked by women everywhere for the feeling of empowerment she provides.
A wonderful show.
I recently went to their Seven Deadly Cins show at Bogarts. This was probably my 6th or 7th show, and dare I say, favorite one yet? I loved all of the new solos (I think every solo was new), especially the "Tequila" song and the instrumental "Dont 'cha Wish Your Girlfriend Was Hot Like Me." I love these girls! They are so fun, energetic, enthusiastic, beautiful, talented, and on point (and hilarious at times)! I will definitely be seeing them again and again.
Response from Cin City Burlesque:
Thank you SO much!!!!
Just perfect fun!!!! Sweet Biscuit as well as all the ladies were entertaining from start to finish...
These hard working women are exceptionally talented. They keep you hooting and hollering with their dance moves, comedy, and sex appeal. If you have never gone to a show, you should give it a try.....you will not regret it.
I have been every shape and size you could imagine. I also have realized throughout my ever changing body, myself and other women have been the hardest on me. Yet, as soon as you come in contact with any one of the ladies from Cin City Burlesque, they make you feel like YOU are the stunning one. YOU are the reason they do the shows. They are some of the sweetest and good hearted women you could ever want to meet. Once they take the stage, hold on to you britches, because you will be in for a fantastic show! Their shows are for every gender, race, age(over 18, lol!). If you want to escape for a couple of hours and absolutely enjoy every part of the evening...go see the wonderful ladies with Cin City Burlesque!!!
my wife and I were extremely entertained.... we will purchase tickets for the next show in advance and make sure we are @ a table just to be closer to the action.... We would recommend to everyone that we know!
I don't miss a show! I bring my husband along for a fun little date night. The girls are so beautiful and confident, it makes me want to be like them! Helluva ring leader, too, that Ginger. Can't wait to take a burlesque work-shop with her! Sweet Biscuit is always a plus, as well! lovelovelovelovelove
Response from Cin City Burlesque:
Thank you soooo much! We're glad to hear it!
These gals sure can put on a show! Talented from head to their perfectly pointed toes. Professional dancing mixed with humor and gorgeous gals...what more could you ask for?! I have been to several of their shows and they always bring something new and exciting to the stage.
Cin City Burlesque put on a most awesome and entertaining show! They provide serious burlesque while adding fun along the way. If you have not seen one of their shows yet I highly recommend getting to one ASAP. You will not regret it! It will also not be your last!
Great ladies to work with , always able to make it happen . As a musician trying to diversify a show they are a breath of fresh air .
The ladies of Cin City Burlesque sure do know how to put on a show! Entertaining and lovely. I would recommend them to anyone looking to hire entertainment or to simply check them out at a show in Cincinnati! It is a great time!
We went as a troupe to see Cin City for the first time ever at their Christmas show at the beginning of this month. I was absolutely ecstatic. :D The ladies of Cin City mixed just the right elements of comedy and class to keep the show entertaining. Their emcee, Sweet Biscuit is a complete doll on and off stage...there were acts for all tastes. I laughed, I cried [from laughter], and got excited with the ladies as they took us on their Christmas journey. They do a great job with the amount of members that they have and put on a show filled with joy and talent. My absolute favorite routine included lots of white fringe, glitter, and the Virgin Mary. :D
I would definitely recommend Cin City to anyone who is interested in burlesque...not only do these ladies have extreme amounts of talent, they know how to use it.
I am a professional dancer who just so happened to be in the area at the right time to catch their show at a concert hall in Cincinnati, though I have forgotten the name of the venue. My friend who I stayed with on a long layover told me about the show, and well all she had to say was burlesque and I was there.This is a real review, you will hear my professional unbiased opinion of the show. I do not know these ladies nor do I have any affiliation with them or any of their associates. I have been traveling the world since 1983 as a professional dancer so I have seen the best and the worst. I have choice opinions for the area of town it was held and the venue but this is not a venue review so lets begin.
Lets start with the overall show, it was good, very entertaining and seductive. The solos, duets and group numbers however ranged from great to not good. The best number a duet to the song Hell, which I love. Its a classic! The two dancers were the most in sync of any of the numbers. There were some flaws with the ladies dancing, not matching the beat quite and not perfectly in sync, but nerves can cause these issues I understand. But overall it was a great piece! Then there was the cat in the hat number...what is this?? Dr.Sues is big in Spain(where I live and grew up) but I'm at a loss here. The girl from this skit, at best, thats what it was, is gorgeous but in far too many of the numbers for her talent level and gave too much duck lip. She was the main culprit for other group numbers being off sync. Just being honest, she was a lovely woman to look at though but I would not hire her. Then there was a number to a classic of american culture as I am told, fat bottom girl, I wondered why the red head was in this number when there were several other dancerd in the company who were obviously more suited for the role. And I seemed to notice there was one dancer who really stood out, she had stage presence and technique. She was always on point in every number she was in, but she was in so few. Why are they not using this dancer? Other than this unused dancer who reminded me of a young Donna Douglas, the dancers who really stood out were the red headed version of Betty Boop! This dancer was on point, playful and confident! Also the dark haired tall girl with the long legs, a Betty Paigesque look. And of course the platinum blonde with the mile long legs! Her solo was the best by far! I wish I could go into detail and give the girls names so you would know who to hire but as I said I just happen to catch the show. I honestly wouldn't even take the time to write this review if I didn't enjoy the show so much. They are definitely worth the price and a night out on.
I attended their show for the first time ever as a surprise for my husband's birthday. It was everything I expected and more!! These ladies are so entertaining and so talented! I tend to be on the more "conservative" side (at least that's what people tell me) so I was a bit nervous about it, but it was fun, sexy, humorous and entertaining - and never ever trashy. Much class! Chomping at the bit to see another show! I may have enjoyed it more than the husband!
I had a blast at the recent bogarts event. It was thrilling to be entertained by these beautiful women. All of the routines were really creative. It's nice to see women with curves rock it!!! I will definately go to a show again!
These ladies are absolutely wonderful! They sure know how to put on an entertaining show. They are gorgeous, sexy, sassy, and oh so funny! Empowering and fun, A must see for sure!
I have seen many Burlesque acts in my time, across Europe and the United States.
As Swing, Retro and Burlesque seemed to make a cultural come back in the late 90's I had high hopes for what this could mean for the future of Burlesque. I had been very disappointed to see the genre loose it's humor, variety and cheek.
Well, not so anymore!
I saw Cin City Burlesque perform for the first time on September 8th at Bogarts. Talk about Variety, this was a truly authentic performance led and choreographed by professional dancer and instructor Ginger LeSnapps. Cin City Burlesque has just enough modern humor, routines and authentic performances to round out an amazing show. They had singing, comedy, highly skilled dancing and an incredible Emcee to pull it all together. I laughed, I giggled, I wiped the drool off my chin and almost bruised my hands clapping so much.
Whether you are male, female, old, young, seen Burlesque, not seen Burlesque, I highly recommend making your way to a Cin City Burlesque show asap. They are truly one of the best troupes in the US by a mile.
On Aug.4 2012 I had the honor of performing at the Passion & Poetry show in Dayton, Ohio along with Cin City Burlesque. They are professional,beautiful, talented and inspiring. They are also very genuine in spirit and have a connectivty with the audience that reminds me of the "ideal" of Hollywood Glam. They are rehearsed, prompt and delicious to take in. I look forward to attending more of their shows as well as sharing the stage again in an upcoming show! All my best to the wonderful talented ladies of Cin City Burlesque.....love you all!
The ladies of Cin City burlesque are absolutely gorgeous. The show was excellent. There acts are sexy, funny, and very entertaining! I can't wait for their next show!!
Just saw these girls last week at Bogarts and what a show! I have seen these ladies in the past at Japps and they just keep getting better. I noticed there are new faces amongst these bedazzled beauties. Oh man the new blonde really caught my attention and so did the apple cheeked brunette. Keep up the good work ladies and your fans will keep your shows full!
I took a workshop with CCB in February and it was an absolute blast--Ginger, the teacher and bosslady of CCB, made us all feel like stars. I've also seen these ladies perform at Japp's and they are funny, talented and so nice to look at!
Looking for something new to do? Spending an evening with the girls of Cin City Burlesque is always a no brainer. With women of all sizes and beauty, Cin City Burlesque offers glitz & glamour with a touch of comedy in all of their shows/appearances. So get dolled up, grab a cocktail & enjoy the company of these ladies! You won't be disappointed.
I was throwing a birthday party for a friend - you know, for one of those BIG birthdays - and I wanted to do something special to mark the event. A mutual friend had seen a Cin City show, and suggested I contact them.
I was a little apprehensive about hiring an entire troupe - too much money, and too many dancers - and also, about springing half-naked girls on some of the guests, since it was going to be a surprise.
Cin City did everything to put my mind at ease. They told me I could hire as few or as many girls as I wanted, and gave me pricing for solos, duets, and group numbers. They also told me that they did NOT have to go down to pasties or thongs, if I didn't want - they have numbers that don't, or they can modify ones that do. Whew.
So I hired three girls. They were on time, they were professional, they were friendly, and they were classy. The music they chose and the costumes they brought were great. And they were funny! The birthday girl loved it, and felt extra-special - they made sure she got plenty of attention, too. I would hire them again in a second.
I saw the troupe perform at Japp's in downtown Cincinnati for a small show they do on the final Friday of the month there.
The three numbers they did covered a lot of variety - and I was surprised to see that one of them was a dance number where not one stitch of clothing came off. The audience loved it. One was a classic strip tease that was a difficult dance number, to boot - and one was just plain funny.
The girls were there the whole evening, chatting and socializing with all the patrons, which I thought was very friendly. I asked about the numbers, particularly the Roaring 20s one where no one took anything off. They told me that they offer a variety of numbers, with different degrees of exposure, so they can tailor their act to the venue and/or the occasion. Very classy. (And then they invited me to a workshop so I could learn it for myself!)
Cin City burlesque is a wonderful group of ladies. I took a four week boot camp and it was the most amazing time ever. I learned so much and had the most fun in my life!!!!!
I had the pleasure of performing with these women for a burlesque event in my area. They were classy, captivating and so full of energy. You want to liven up your event? Yeah, you need them. Enough said.
The girls are beautiful, classy, and all around perfect. They know their stuff and aren't afraid to show it. The music is perfect and the dances are as well..... Come early and mingle, and don't be afraid to grab a shot and a kiss before the show......
You won't regret it !!!
I can not explain how much I have enjoyed working with these women. I am a photographer in the Cincinnati area and came across these ladies a few years ago. Their shows are to die for and their personalities go right along with the show! I adore taking their picture and recently had them perform at a birthday party! They made the night! They made everyone smile and the entertainment made the party a hit! Not only are they professional but they make everyone love them with just a "wink and a smile".... Love the Cin City Burlesque girls!!!!
I've been fortunate to see the Cin City dancers several times and they never disappoint! New routines, new music, great costumes and a great night of burlesque. More than that, the girls are bursting with personality and a great sense of fun. I always leave ready for their next show!
These ladies are true pros. They're fun, funny, sexy and ALWAYS deliver. You can expect an amazing variety of entertainment from peeling to singing, and even some awesome workshop opportunities. Even better is their philanthropy. They're commited to raising money through the joy of Burleque and donating to various causes like Susan G Komen, as well AIDs foundations and the American Heart Association. Above all, they're about helping women learn to love themselves and feel empowered!
I have seen these girls perform three times. I love their shows. They are very entertaining and fun. I love the workshops they offer for amateurs before the show and then they allow the workshop girls to do one number in the show. I really appreciate the chance to learn and perform burlesque dancing. They do a GREAT job. This is a fun group of beautiful , talented confident girls.
This group of ladies are professional, humorous and hot! A great evening of entertainment. They are personable and you find yourself looking forward to the next show. The dancing is strong, spirited, and sexy. This is a must!
Fundraisere for Susan Komen Breast cancer on 10/7/201 and 10/082011 was wonderful. What a brilliant group of fun, talented and beautiful group of women.
