Syrens of the South is please to team up with the Dixie Evans
Burlesque week to hold a fundraiser to benefit Burlesque Legend Dixie Evans!
Dixie Evans, The Marilyn Monroe of Burlesque is the beloved
Godmother of the new burlesque movement and during her birth week, performers and burlesque instructors from all over the world will host events, shows and classes to raise money for the burlesque legend and founder of The Miss Exotic World Pageant. With shows and classes already confirmed in NYC, LA, Dallas, Toronto, Australia and more, this is going to be a bawdy burlesque-packed week in honor of Dixie Evans. Help us honor the woman who kept burlesque alive and helped make the resurgence the wild success that it is!
Why does Dixie need our help now more then ever? In January of this year, Dixie suffered a stroke. She is currently residing in an assisted living facility and receiving physical therapy. While the care Dixie is receiving is good, we in the burlesque community want to guarantee that level of care, and ensure that Dixie has access
to every opportunity to speed her recuperation and continue to make her as comfortable as possible, including more access to physical and speech therapy. Our goal throughout this week of celebration goes beyond just raising funds for this amazing woman; we want to show her just how much the burlesque community
loves and appreciates the hard work she put into not only preserving the history of burlesque, but fanning the flames of the new burlesque.
UPDATE FROM DIXIE EVANS WEEK: With the passing of Dixie Evans on August 3rd, 2013, Dixie Evans Week will now become a week of honoring the memory and celebrating the life of one of our most cherished legends, Dixie Evans. All funds raised during Dixie Evans Week through online funding, live shows and classes will be
used to cover the existing costs of outstanding medical bills and preparations for Dixie's final accommodation. Please be patient with us while we re-evaluate our new funding goal; updates will be posted www.dixieevansweek.com as well as on her You Caring site. We
thank you for your continued support, and we know that Dixie will be with us if
not in body in spirit as we celebrate her life.

Burlesque is the art of the striptease, with a focus on the tease. The performers occasionally strip to pasties, but there is no nudity in any of our productions. This show is a revival of an American art form that has become an international movement.
