24 May Burlesque Performance Series — Virtual Edition!
Spice up your “stay-at-home” by venturing into the world of burlesque!
Join our rock-star team of instructors to learn how to build a complete stage-ready routine over this 4-week series. In addition to group classes covering the fundamentals of burlesque movement, act design and choreography, you’ll get individualized feedback from professional mentors to help you create a solo. And, of course, you’ll have the option to perform your piece at a finale virtual showcase!
Not ready to perform? That’s cool — you can still participate in the series and just opt out of the finale. You also get to decide how much you want to strip: Stick to glove peels and outer layers, or go for pasties, whatever you’re comfortable with.
Rehearsals will be held on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. for 4 consecutive weeks from June 9-30, with the showcase on Sat. July 11.
Space is limited so that we can provide individual attention, so grab your spot while you can! Only $60 for the full series:
