Can Burlesque Help With My Confidence/Body Issues?
YES! You may not feel it right away, but if you stick with it, you will definitely begin to see the amazing person that you are! Burlesque is all about owning your sexuality and sharing it with not only the audience but yourself. There is no "Burlesque Body Type". In fact, people go to burlesque shows because they love to see the variety of ages, sizes, personal styles and personalities taking charge of the stage. Think of burlesque as your own theatrical production where you are creating the character. Maybe your character is an exaggerated version of yourself, or your mother, or an alien from planet Voluptua. You can create your character to be anything you want!
What If I Can't Dance?
We start from the very beginning in the Burlesque 101 course and teach classic moves that you can put together in your routine. During classes you will receive help and feedback from your teacher and classmates to make your routine great! If you're feeling awkward or rhythmically challenged while doing the moves and building your routine, just emphasize it and make it part of your routine! This is YOUR burlesque character, so own it! However, if you're still feeling like you may want some outside help, our teachers offer private instruction for additional fees.
What If My Employer Isn't Okay With Burlesque?
What they don't know won't hurt them! No, but really, burlesque is performance art. We will learn all about classic strip tease moves with gloves and stocking peels and twirling tassels, but ultimately, what you put on stage is up to you. Maybe you don't get down to pasties and a g-string, maybe your act is all about building the slow tease of taking off a single glove for 2 minutes.
How Much Money Can I Make Doing Burlesque?
You probably shouldn't quit your day job yet! Burlesque is on the rise and slowly becoming more mainstream, but is still a fairly underground and misunderstood art form. Yes, an art form. That should tell you everything you need to know there. Burlesque performers are artists and we put our heart and souls into our acts because we love it, but for the most part, we all have day jobs that keep the lights on.
What Is Your Cancellation Policy?
If you would like to withdraw from a class, you may due so for a full refund if it is 14 days before the initial class starts. Refunds will not be offered after the 14 day mark has passed.
