Alotta Boutté at Burlycon (plus a casting call…)
One of the founding members of Harlem Shake Burlesque, legendary San Francisco chanteuse Alotta Boutté has tap danced and burlesqued her way around the world- most notably at the acclaimed Hubba Hubba Review, Margaret Cho’s The Sensuous Woman, Tease-O-Rama, and Exotic World. We’re extremely lucky to have her all to ourselves at Burlycon this year where she will teach “Sing & Strip”.
Here’s a link to an extremely cool interview with Alotta from a few years back…
