The modern world of burlesque is a liberating, dizzying explosion of feathers, glitter, rhinestones & feminism — welcoming performers of all types from very voluptuous to the teeny-tiny & everything in between what's not to love the costumes, the glory, the theatrics, the nudity!

We mightn't be burlesquing in terms of what's stated in the dictionary. We will be taking a more modern interpretation of the word. With fun, tongue in cheek, sexy hide and seek routines, including some skilful clothing removal. No Nudity will be involved unless you want to lol. Not truly not about what you take off, but how you take it off.

Each workshop will have a different theme/prop to use & you will be guided through all the technical stuff of the chosen accessory or theme, after a mind & body freeing warm up, which will lead you into a sexy routine that will leave you breathless.
