can burlesque be performed to hip hop music?

Burlesque can be performed to anything, and hip hop moves are fantastic in burlesque numbers as well as hip hop music. You don't even have to use music if you're really innovative; Nasty Canasta does a fan dance to a car alarm:

However, nothing beats learning to do the classic moves of mid-20th century style burlesque striptease to the type of music they used, because you can usually do a btter job of deconstructing something if you know how it's constructed first.

Ask me anything about Burlesque!
