The burlesque revival (beginning in the early 1990's) has swept through the UK, central Europe and North America, breaking out of trend-setting circles and influencing mainstream culture through fashion, music and entertainment.
Bursting onto the front covers of magazines and propelling names such as Dita Von Teese and Chaz Royal onto the international celebrity scene, burlesque has made a glamorous and lasting impression on the cultural landscape.
Bringing glitter, glamour and tease - this hugely popular and exciting art of the strip and the tease has reignited the demand for alternative entertainment and burgeoned into a global industry.
After a decade of promoting, booking and managing International music and live events - in 2001 talented impresario Mark Henderson re-branded as Chaz Royal and blazoned the trail for the 21st century burlesque phenomenon.
Having launched sell out road shows across hundreds of cities throughout North America, the UK & Europe, Chaz went on to create London Burlesque Fest, Amsterdam Burlesque Fest and many other signature events.
