Great Canadian Burlesque
From their Facebook page:

In 2010, after years of producing an open-mic style monthly burlesque variety night at Mitzi's Sister, Mysterion and the Wolfman teamed up with Fionna Flauntit to create a core troupe of burlesque performers that they named Great Canadian Burlesque.

They offer weekly shows at Cherry Cola's, and are currently fundraising for a Canadian Burlesque Hall of Fame. (hopefully to be built in Toronto)

Reveal me at the Rivoli

Reveal Me at the Rivoli

The Rivoli is staging a series of Burlesque nights on the first Wednesday of every month. Tickets will run you a measly $10.00 at the door. Doors open at 8:00PM, show starts at 9:00PM. The next show is March 5th.

While modern stripping did develop from Burlesque, it's more of a fun 'wink-wink, nudge-nudge' kind of time, not a grinding on your lap night. On the plus side, even the most prudish girlfriends or wives should get a kick out of this kind of show.

Toronto Burlesque Festival

Before strippers there were Burlesque dancers. These dancers blurred the lines between performance art and obscenity laws.

Dancers would travel far and wide performing their shows, and were considered big names in the industry, and would perform at such locations in Toronto like Victory Burlesque at Spadina and Dundas.

Check out some modern day versions of this with such dancers as LouLou D'vil (recent winner of the title 'Reigning Queen of Burlesque' in Las Vegas), Armitage Shanks, Ophelia Flame and many others.

These shows are nothing like modern day strip clubs, but are more like stage shows designed to titillate the customer while still obeying the laws of the time.
