The Year in St. Louis Burlesque 2014 (NSFW)

Burlesque performers are a saucy bunch -- a right they've earned by honing skills in dance, gymnastics, theater, costume design and much more. From strutting hilariously in front of a sci-fi set to clinging to a pole through the strength of a pinky toe, St. Louis entertainers know how to share their talents and delight a crowd. In this slideshow, you'll find some of our favorite burlesque moments of 2014, all shot by Riverfront Times photographers. (Obviously, not all photos are safe for work.)
