Summary "The Burlesque Hall of Fame reunion has been an annual tradition since 1955, when the League of Exotic Dancers (LED), one of America's earliest unions for women in exotic entertainment, held its first meeting. Today, situated in downtown Las Vegas, often called "Old Vegas" or "50s Vegas," The Burlesque Hall of Fame reunion now takes the form of a social club and support group, where these late life dancers perform their half-century-year-old routines from the golden age of burlesque to a rally of counter culture neo-burlesque fans"-- Provided by publisher
