HEN PARTIES

Beginner classes are suitable for everyone, no previous experience with burlesque needed. Perfect for beginners and girls night out. Fun, easy going, safe and  memorable is the goal of these classes. 

Learn the basics of burlesque teasing, hiding and revealing with a feather boa. In this class you will learn a handful of tricks and variations to move with the boa + a small sultry fem fatale choreography to put all the feathery techniques to use.

What to bring & wear: Please wear clothes that allow movement a - something like leggings+top, bodysuit or short dress works just fine. Participants need to bring their own feather boa or a scarf that is at least 1,8 m long.

In this class you will learn burlesque basics while learning several techniques how to peel stocking and a short choreography to combine the moves.

PERFORMER LEVEL CLASSES

Performer level classes are focused towards stage work and performing, so we dive into more specific techniques. The "performer level" does not require tons of stage experience, all new performers are very welcome, it's just the difference in the state of mind in the class. Skill developing is the goal of these classes.

Nobody likes a dry act, so how do you spice it up? How to make your small moves zingy and your big moves look grand? In this workshop we will work through a toolset to first explore and analyze different sized moves and how they carry emotion and finish the workshop with a small combo to see how our toolset has changed the outcome. 

What to bring & wear: Please wear clothes that allow movement, a pen and potentially a notebook. Shoes are optional.

Duration: 120 min

Advanced class for boa moves. So you already know the classical tease, reveal and floss moves, but what about actual tricks? In this class we will work with several tosses, twirl, wrap and manipulations to move the feather snake.

What to bring & wear: Please bring a boa that is at least 2,5 m long. The usual 1,5 m is going to be too short. Easy fix is to buy two cheap boas and sew them together from one end. Wear clothes that allow movement and are snug around your body such as leggings + top. Shoes are optional.

Duration: 90 min

Being on stage is just a small part of being a burlesque performer - so what happens off stage? How to talk to clients? What happens before arriving at the venue? How to handle payments? What is backstage etiquette? What is expected of you as a performer? What are your rights? In this discussion based class we go through the whole booking journey over till getting paid, spiced up with stories of 12 years of experience in the burlesque field of working with national, international and corporate clients.

What to bring & wear: Notebook and pen if you like taking notes. This is a talk class, so clothes are to your linking.

Duration: 90-120 min, depending on the amount of questions
