Prevention. Awareness. Showgirls.
Pink Light Burlesque is a program founded by The New York School of Burlesque offering free classes to breast cancer patients and survivors. Burlesque celebrates the human drive to amuse, provoke, charm, and seduce. The Pink Light Burlesque project invites survivors to take classes to experience the joyous and body-loving fun so many burlesque students embrace.
These classes are held in honor of Jennie Lee, the founder of The Burlesque Hall of Fame, who passed away from Breast Cancer in 1990. We are not yet a nonprofit, but we gratefully accept donations for specific documentable purposes, as we are preparing to launch into our first session for 2012. For instance, Duane Park donated funds to pay for our studio rental for our first series, and significant support was provided by Night Owls, Champagne Riot and The Friends & Family of Diane Naegel.
