What is it all about?
Spice up your evening and learn the sensual performance art of burlesque. This class will offer guided exercises on how to eroticize a performance as well as information on the history and culture of burlesque.
What will we cover?
Seasoned performer St. Stella will begin with a short playful and informative introductory on the history and culture of burlesque. You’ll learn three archetype characters found in the art and then execute the various movements and performance styles they embody. Not to mention, you can purchase a ticket including a pair of silky gloves to master the erotic ‘glove peel’! Guests also have the option to bring their own long gloves if they prefer to do so. To make the workshop even more entertaining, professional performers will take the stage and show you a thing or two. What more can you ask for on a Wednesday night?
