The Atlanta School of Burlesque Presents

A Weekend with GiGi Holliday

.The Atlanta School of Burlesque has been providing burlesque education in the broader Metro Atlanta area since 2013. As an institution dedicated to burlesque education it is of the utmost importance that we provide our students access to the best instructors in our industry.

Our first "Weekend With" featured GiGi Holliday, Washington D.C.’s resurgence of glitz, glamour, and allure. Armed with eyelashes and an arsenal of glitter, she has enticed audiences with her clever blend of sass and wit. Lady GiGi Holliday had her start after studying the art of burlesque in Trixie Little’s Burlesque Bootcamp and graduated in May 2010 with a double major in class and sass and a minor in tit-elation.

When she is not melting her milk chocolate beauty all over the audience, she uses her business attitude along with hard work. She is the Entertainment Director, premier host, and dancer for the La Boum Series, owner of Studio Holliday Burlesque Studio, Owner and Creative Director of Gi² Productions and Co-Founder and Co-Producer of the InDCent Arts Festival (Formerly known as Capital City Burlesque and Vaudeville Festival). GiGi has headlined the New Jersey Burlesque Festival, Jeezy’s Juke Joint, the 2nd Annual Texas Queerlesque Festival and What The Funk: An All BIPOC Festival in 2021.

In September 8, 2016, GiGi spoke for Creative Morning’s D.C. titled “Strip off your clothes and find your weird” which discusses the art of burlesque and the creative process. In 2020, GiGi became a member of The House of Knyle and debuted at number 40 on the Top 50 Burlesque list. In 2022, GiGi jumped 30 spots in 365 days to number 10 on the Top 50 Burlesque list. Winner of Hottest Freshman of 2021 at the NY Burlesque Festival, GiGi Holliday is a D.C. Legend and NY’s Rising star, “D.C. Legitimate Love Child” enjoys the spotlight heating her up and showing you some “Chocolate City Tittie”.

Our weekender featured two shows!

Strippers' Holliday brought together some of the top talent in Atlanta, Georgia to share the stage with GiGi Holliday!


Nose to the Rhinestone began as a social media accountability network that was created by Bazuka Joe. According to Bazuka Joe, #NoseToTheRhinestone was "created in an effort to get folks motivated, and it served its purpose well at the time." Now you can search the hashtag on most social media channels and see the incredible work and dedication that many burlesque performers have chronicled with this hashtag. We have created this show as a part of our Weekend With series to inspire local Atlanta burlesque performers to get their noses to the rhinestone and create something that can then be peer reviewed by some of the best in our industry!

We use this name and concept with explicit consent and enthusiasm from Bazuka Joe. 

This show featured 8 performers who were provided act feedback by GiGi Holliday, instructors at The Atlanta School of Burlesque, and some of our performers from our Saturday night show, Stripper's Holliday.

All tickets to this show came with brunch catered by DeaLuna Productions!
