About Us

The DC Gurly Show is DC’s longest running Queer Burlesque Troupe. Our mission is to foster an encouraging and supportive community of performers and fans in and around the Nation’s Capital. DCGS welcomes all shapes, sizes, colors, and orientations, and is an open, safe space for novice and seasoned performers to grow. We have been an active burlesque troupe in the DMV area for 12 years.

Each DC Gurly show consists of 6 – 8 solo Gurly performances and a group number. Please contact us if you are interested in booking the DC Gurly Show for private parties and events.


DCGS: Fund-Raise the Roof!

Date: September 01, 2017
Show Time: 8:30PM
Cover: $15/ 21 & Over

The DC Gurly show is back with the best give-back event in burlesque! As back-to-school time approaches, the DC Gurly Show wants to make sure that everyone has a chance to get access to education, not just in reading, ‘riting, and ‘rithmatic, but in dance, design, and drama! Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW) is a DC center for community arts education for all ages, and we are proud to be partnering with them for our September Fund-Raise the Roof show! All proceeds of the show go to CHAW, and we will also be having a silent auction of art created by some of CHAW’s students! You don’t want to miss out on this sexy September shindig supporting the arts!
