A Wink and a Smile follows the lives of ten ordinary women learning the art of striptease.

Students of Seattle's Academy of Burlesque have six weeks to peel and reveal their hidden talents with little more thana tassel and a twirl. Seasoned burlesque divas strut on stage with their own entertaining, satirical and beautiful performances to illustrate the candid and often hilarious lectures by the Academy's headmistress, Miss Indigo Blue.

Audiences watch with glee as Miss Indigo's budding divas shimmy, shake, bump and grind their way into our hearts. Through their adventures (and misadventures) we see why a homemaker, a reporter, a doctor, an opera singer, a taxidermist and students join the American culteral revival that is swelling from fringe fascination to mainstream obsession.
