Angie Pontani is a burlesque dancer for a troupe called the Pontani sisters, and she says they cant wait to dance it up New Orleans style for the Mardi Gras: Brooklyn! event scheduled for tomorrow (Feb. 20).
Says Pontani: Much of burlesques history is based in New Orleans the city has so many fabulous clubs where the art form started.
She says the girls are doing four dance numbers that incorporate New Orleans smokin jazz and history, but are staying away from any water-related acts a la Flashdance.
In fact, Pontani is so excited about the show she cant wait to take it on the road.
As she puts it, The people down there [New Orleans] are so amazing. We get letters from them asking when were coming back. We wouldnt tone down the show at all in fact we tend to step it up when were down there New Orleans is off the hook.
