Move over, ladies of burlesque; there are some hot-ass men who will give you a run for your money sashaying onto the stage. For two days, the New York Boylesque Festival will present more than 30 of the most talented male burlesque dancers from New York, London, Toronto, and beyond. World Famous *BOB* hosts this extravaganza, which includes performances by Dew Lily, the Evil Hate Monkey, Mr. Gorgeous, and more. And if you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed with the boylesque world, the festival also offers fascinating workshops via their Boylesk University, including "A Brief History of the First 120 Years of Boylesk: 1883–2003." And put those jazz hands to use in the class "Dance Technique for Burlesque" with teachers Hot Toddy and Go-Go Harder. So go hard or go home.
