About CCB

Voted “Best Burlesque Show” for FIVE years running in Vue Weekly's Best of Edmonton, Capital City Burlesque is Edmonton’s premiere burlesque dance troupe.

From Rockette-inspired kick lines to a trio of thrusting Santas, CCB elegantly straddles a fine line between classic burlesque and humourous modernist parody.

"**** ...the ladies of Capital City Burlesque put on a high-energy and coquettishly sexy show."  - Vue Weekly, Fringe Festival Review, August 2013
