The troupe armed with their feathers and boas have a special holiday show lined up highlighting how the shimmy and shakes have changed through the years in “Stripping Through the Ages.” The sashaying begins at 9 p.m. Tickets are $15 to $20.

    KEYS OF LIGHT: If you’re still on holiday vacay mode, then take the day to explore hidden glimmers of light throughout the world’s most urban cities at the Keys of Light exhibition currently on display at the Latino Cultural Center.
