With a deep-rooted love for traditional-style burlesque, Simone de la Getto (a
former member of the Cantankerous Lollies) had a dream. In this dream, she
paid homage to the many women of color that strutted and wow-ed so many
burlesque audiences back in the day. Since their debut performance in May
of 2003, Simone and Harlem Shake aspire to bring burlesque to
communities of color that might not have access to this phenomenal art
form. History is indeed being changed one shake at a time!
