Michelle Baldwin, aka Vivienne VaVoom
Baldwin, founder of the Burlesque as It Was troupe, might be Denver's busiest human - when she's not performing, writing books (Burlesque and the New Bump-N-Grind), appearing on television (Trading Spaces) or teaching newbies the art of the tassel flip, she's increasing Denver's ambient level of cool simply by leaving the house.

"Art of seduction"

Sun 11 Mar 2007
Michelle Baldwin, author of Burlesque and the New Bump-n-Grind, has a theory. "Modern sexuality is so 'out there' and completely in our face, from the tabloids to prime-time television," she says. "Burlesque takes a bit of a step back, relying on a teasing sensuality rather than out and out sexuality to entice and entertain. The shows are titillating, without the risk of being raunchy or offensive." It's true that, just as in the old days, the nipple tassels and knickers stay on.
Michelle Baldwin, aka Vivienne VaVoom, a burlesque performer herself and the founder of Burlesque As It Was, one of the most respected burlesque troupes in the US, agrees. "I think the nostalgia comes from a basic longing for glamour. There's so little glamour in our modern culture that it makes sense that people on the scene would reach back into the past to a time when full make-up, hats, gloves, corsets and the like were everyday wear."

Still working on that hot first release.



A versatile vixen of the classic ecdysiasts art, Vivienne VaVoom can generally be found bumping and grinding a mile high in her hometown of Denver. She has performed at various venues around the country and at the Big Three: Miss Exotic World, Tease-O-Rama and the New York Burlesque Fest. Next year she celebrates 10 years of shimmying with the troupe she founded, Burlesque As It Was. Her alter ego, Michelle Baldwin, wrote THE book on the neo-burlesque scene, Burlesque and the The New Bump & Grind.
