New Follies!

The excitement is palpable as these performers get ready to hit the stage, each bringing their own unique style, charisma, and flair to captivate the audience and impress our experienced judges. The competition aspect adds an extra layer of energy and suspense, making it a truly exhilarating experience for both participants and audience members alike.

Winning New Follies or participating can open doors for performers, offering further recognition within the burlesque community and beyond. It’s a testament to their dedication, talent, and ability to entertain and enchant audiences.
