What should I wear to class?

Wear whatever you can move around in freely that makes you feel sassy and inspired. It should also be something you won't mind getting a bit sweaty. For some people that means fishnets and a cute camisole. For others that means yoga pants and an old camp t-shirt. Generally, the people who wear something flirty tend to get more out of the workshops. Heels are an asset, but not mandatory. Above all, dress so that you feel comfortable. At the end of every class description, I indicate any specialty items that you should try to bring -- if you have them. If you don't, we can usually work around it.

Do I have to take my clothes off?

NO. It's entirely up to you to decide what you want to do when. You can always pantomine the removal of a layer that you don't have or don't want to take off. And in any time we do approach striptease elements, we've got nice low lighting and privacy curtains to make even the shyest person comfortable. It's always a laid-back giggly group.

Is burlesque just for skinny minis? What if I'm too big to take dance classes?

Burlesque is very embracing of all body types. So many local performers have dangerous curves and the gusto to match. It doesn't matter what size you are; it's all about living with verve and taking a bold step to try something new!

I've never danced before. Is this going to be too hard for me?

No. Each workshop goes step by step so it's easy for anyone to follow along. Everyone comes away saucier and so will you!

I signed up, but at the last minute my two friends wanted to come too. Can I bring them?

Yes! You should always bring your cheekiest girlfriends. Pre-registration is generally preferred so I can get a sense of how many practice props to bring. But drop-ins are definitely welcome.

If I take these workshops, does this mean I have to perform in a show?

No. Each workshop will show you techniques you can put into your bag of tricks whether you're already a performer, thinking of becoming one, or if you have a special someone at home you'd like to wow. You can drop in and out at any time. Easy, breezy.
