The Looking Glass Revue Presents: The Burlesque Class Series, taught by professional burlesque performers.

Two great classes in one day!
Learn the art of the tease...

Burlesque is a liberating and empowering art form that has seen a mainstream resurgence. These sensual movements have been performed by some of the world’s most iconic women as the ultimate form of expression.

Come learn how to bump and grind and use the power of sensuality to liberate and empower your inner temptress!

This workshop will focus on body positivity while encouraging and building self-confidence.

1st Hour:
Burlesque Basics - Learn the basics of burlesque with this introductory class. Learn the bumps and grinds, glove peel and more.

This class is ideal for beginners who just want to have fun and great for performers who want to add to their classic-burlesque-movement vocabulary.

2nd Hour:
The Art of Tassel Twirling. Learn to spin your tassels like the pros. It's more than just a little shimmy and shake. Spinning tassels is all about technique and physics.. Yes, there is a whole lot of science behind it!

(Please note that removing your top is not required for this class. Tassels may be worn attached to a lightweight shirt or bralette)

You may bring your own tassels or you may purchase a new pair for an extra $5

WHAT TO WEAR: COMFORTABLE DANCE/YOGA CLOTHES
