Burlesque show highlights vintage form of dance

BATH — On Saturday, the summer begins with Red Hot & Ladylike and Bath’s own Wicked Burlesque dance troupes as they present The Frisky Business Burlesque Show on the main stage of the Chocolate Church Arts Center located at 804 Washington St. in Bath.
