Babes of Burlesque: 27

JO “BOOBS” WELDON

The author the first book ever written on how to perform burlesque, Jo Weldon is headmistress of the New York School of Burlesque, responsible for teaching thousands of women to twirl their tassels. She’s also an active performer in her own right, named one of Top Ten Badass Burlesque Babes by fashion designer Garo Sparo. She performed the first strip ever at the New York Public Library, and on the flip side, collaborated with the faux rock band Spinal Tap. In another memorable honor, she danced at Gypsy Rose Lee’s 100th birthday party. Her book, The Burlesque Handbook, was published by HarperCollins.
