FLIRT combines dance clubbing with burlesque shows. The evening will be enjoyable mixture of dancing, party music, visuals, eroticism, humour and play.

The idea of a dance/house night is that the DJs play so good and inspirational music that the party goers can dance all night long and get pleasure out of it. Burlesque shows offer sensual, fun, playful and stylish entertainment and visual pleasure, with more or less naughty flavours. At FLIRT the visual exuberance of burlesque is combined with house music in a new and unexpected way, building a unique experience. Burlesque shows are interwoven into the house beat so that you can't say when a show begins or ends. The shows are added into the mix in a similar way as go go dancers so that the dance partying will not stop during the shows. During the night there will be well-rehearsed show pieces and ongoing spontaneous shows on the stage and on the dancefloor.

DJs play house and tech-house in the main room and in the bar DJs play anything from retro lounge to electronic pop.

FLIRT takes place on Friday 16. 3. 2012 at 21-04 at Club Venue, Pohjoinen Rautatienkatu 21, 00100 Helsinki. Age 18. Tickets 15 € at the door or 8 € + booking fee 1€, total 9€+ service fee in advance. Shows start at 22.00.
