The Boston Babydolls are the leading burlesque troupe in New England. Boston Phoenix readers named us Boston’s Best Burlesque in 2012 and 2011 and Boston’s Sexiest Dance Troupe in 2010. We are a Theatre Company in Residence at The Cambridge YMCA Theatre in Central Square and perform there several times a year. We also offer classes and parties at our own studio in Allston, MA.
If you’re looking for bumping, grinding, swinging, jiving, foot stomping, hand clapping, tassel twirling burlesque – you’ve found it.
We adore and respect the burlesque performers who came before us and seek to honor them every time we perform, but we don’t just do simple history lessons. A Boston Babydolls show is Cutting Edge Classic; a unique mixture of Golden Age Glamour and modern bite. Our elegant stripteasers do remove some of their clothing, but the least amount of clothing someone will have on are pasties and panties (if you’re hiring us to perform in your venue, check your local ordinances), and while burlesque dance is an essential part of any Boston Babydolls appearance, we offer so much more: singing, comedy, magic, circus arts…in short, an evening with The Boston Babydolls is a guaranteed evening to remember.
