This Burlesque Dancer Twerks To Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony (NSFW)


burlesque performer twerks to beethoven

Plenty of people have been quite dismissive of twerking as a real form of dance, with many getting quite upset with its addition to the Oxford English Dictionary as a real word. However, I can see the hours of dedication and training that go into a good twerk – case in point the skills of a young American performer featured in this video.

A Chicago based burlesque performer by the name of Michelle L’Amour has been thrust forward into internet stardom because of her absolutely mesmorising ability to twerk to… get this… CLASSICAL MUSIC. In this particular video which was apparently shot sometime last year, only being picked up by the interwebs recently Michelle shakes her well defined booty to Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony.

Various reports say that L’amour has been recognised for her burlesque skills before, with a video of her performing a version of Knight Rider on America’s Got Talent in 2006 garnering over 600 000 views. Her next performance will be at Chicago’s Everleigh Social Club for a special Halloween edition of “Naked Girls Reading” which has been re-titled as “Naked GHOULS Reading,” a tribute to Alfred Hitchcock. Wish we were there to catch it…
