9. DANCE: Diversi-Tease
It may be cold outside in Minneapolis this time of year, but there will be plenty of hot action inside the city’s Ritz Theater during Diversi-Tease, an LGBT-inclusive three-day festival of burlesque, drag, vaudeville, and cabaret that begins Thursday. Presented by the Burlesque Dolls, an affiliate of Twin Cities troupe Ballet of the Dolls, the event will feature more than 40 acts over five shows and offer classes for the general public, welcoming dancers of all ages, sizes, and genders. “I think it’s really important to promote and show how within this genre it is so diverse,” Burlesque Dolls member Queenie von Curves told the Twin Cities’ Lavender Magazine. “Whether it’s ‘I don’t fit into a gender,’ or ‘I fit into both genders.’ Maybe I’m a bigger girl. It doesn’t really matter who you are or where you come from as long you can bring it.” Order tickets and register for classes at — Trudy Ring
