Urbanesque is a production five years in the making. Movies like Showgirls, Dreamgirls, Idlewild and Burlesque solidified the idea that dance needs to be theatrical. Much of Hollywood's previous work has culminated into this production. Additional inspiration came for the performers and their talents to tell stories sometimes with just a look. Urbanesque is a combination of dance and music that surprises and enlightens the audience to look beyond the surface of the dancer and tap into the performance. The classical style of Burlesque is only available to a small group of women. Urbanesque expands the boundaries to involve women from all walks of life, nationalities and body types. It is urban, sexy, mature, adventurous, strong, revealing and explores the many types of the modern woman.
