THE Race­horse Ho­tel is sure to go off with a bang tonight as a fiery bur­lesque show dances onto the stage.

Big Bang Bur­lesque, which com­bines sul­try dance rou­tines with fire­works and spe­cial ef­fects, will en­ter­tain the crowd for three hours at their first Ip­swich show at the Booval wa­ter­ing hole on Sat­ur­day.

The show is co-pro­duced by Scar­let Tink­a­belle and her busi­ness part­ner Pyra Tech­nix, who love to teach and show off bur­lesque to peo­ple across the coun­try.

“We love to bring bur­lesque shows to com­mu­ni­ties that don’t get op­por­tu­ni­ties to see shows like this,” Ms Tink­a­belle said.

“We started off with shows on the Sun­shine Coast, be­cause there was noth­ing like this up there. We also went to Bund­aberg, Goul­burn (in New South Wales) and have done one show in Bris­bane.

“This will be the first time we will be bring­ing our large show to Ip­swich.”

The three-hour spec­tac­u­lar will show­case a num­ber of per­form­ers who have spent years mas­ter­ing their skills, just like Ms Tink­a­belle.

“I come from a back­ground of danc­ing. I have done bal­let, jazz and other classes since the age of two,” she said.

“My friends were do­ing bur­lesque classes and asked if I wanted to go along with them, so that’s how I started.

“It gives me an op­por­tu­nity to ex­plore new creative out­lets which is very dif­fer­ent to my day job.

“I like how lib­er­at­ing bur­lesque dance is and learn­ing how to ex­plore your body in a dif­fer­ent way.”

Join­ing Ms Tink­a­belle on stage will be in­ter­state stars as well as one dancer from Canada.

“There re­ally will be some­thing for ev­ery­one,” she said.

“There will be drag per­form­ers, clas­sic bur­lesque and com­edy bur­lesque.

“We also have fire­works and spe­cial ef­fects, which is some­thing that hasn’t been done in a bur­lesque show be­fore, ex­cept by us.”

Doors open at 6.30pm at the Race­horse Ho­tel, with the show start­ing at 7pm.

Tick­ets start at $30 but rise to $45 for the VIP treat­ment, which is to be seated in the front three rows.
