    Check out these “shake dancer” legends in action. Most would compare shake dancers to modern day strippers. But burlesque performers were about mastering the art of tease. Most performers were also trained dancers. Burlesque was often used as a starter platform for dancers to take off in their careers. For instance Ethlyn Butler started off as a shake dancer, but later trained as a ballet dancer.
