Bubble

Bubble’s is an Art Deco design with geometric lines and repeated imagery. Wearing 30’s pageboy hairstyles, smooth as blonde syrup, the dancers carefully hold their bubbles.

Burlesque stripper Sally Rand invented the bubble dance in the 1930’s. She said “I wanted a balloon sixty inches in diameter made of a translucent material.” Thick rubber target balloons used by the military were the biggest ones available, so Sally hired some experts and had a big pink bubble made to fit her perfectly, hiding only what was necessary for her act.
