Babes of Burlesque: 40
Born and raised in southern Spain, Medianoche is a professional tango and flamenco dancer as well as a stripper. Some of her acts pay nostalgic homage to Spain — such as “Granada” and “Dada del Ruso” — but she can also bust loose with something modern, like “Typewriters and Fishnets,” in which a secretary abandons her typing for a low stocking peel with a desktop tassel-twirl climax.
A member of the vibrant New York burlesque scene, she tours extensively, including a stint in Dita von Teese’s Strip Strip Hooray! cast. Described by the emcee as “sin in a hourglass,” here she performs a sultry number to live music by The Hot Sardines in Dominion, New York. The band members do seem to be having trouble averting their gaze.
At the 4th annual New Orleans Burlesque Festival, Medianoche demonstrates how to do the slow burn. She is quite the tease.
