Inspired by Manischewitz, The Barry Sisters, and Rock n’ Roll these ladies can cut a rug! The Schlep Sisters have been livin’ it up on stage together and captivating audiences across North America since 2004 — from the New York, Toronto, and Dallas Burlesque Festivals to the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas and the Key West Burlesque Holiday Extravaganza – to a month-long Australian Tour! The Schlep Sisters were both voted into the Top 50 International Burlesque Industry Figures of 2012 and are founding members and co-producers of Dangerous Curves Ahead: Burlesque on the Go-Go!, the USA’s Premier National Touring Burlesque Troupe!
