The Gown-and-glove dance is considered a very traditional form of the striptease. The performer, usually female, is dressed elegantly, in an evening gown with a back zipper and elbow length opera gloves. She will remove the gloves one at a time, in a slow teasing manner, before similarly removing the gown. This type of dance is exemplified by actresses like Rita Hayworth in Gilda (1946) and Natalie Wood in Gypsy (1962); and by current Neo-Burlesque performers like Dita Von Teese and Vienna La Rouge.
