Thank you for your interest in the New York School of Burlesque!

Many women have described our burlesque bachelorette parties as the best times they've ever had at a bachelorette party!

We offer:
1) For the relatively shy, a class where you'll learn bumps n grinds and basic burlesque moves, without revealing nudity.
2) For the more adventurous, a full-on burlesque routine, including the use of our boas and satin gloves. If you request it specifically, the full-on routine will conclude with a lesson nipple-tassel twirling. By prior arrangement only; tassel-twirling lesson must be requested no less than 3 days before the event or tassels cannot be made available for use at the party.
3) For any type of party, we offer a class to teach attendees how to strip out of street clothes in a teasing and playful manner. This is particularly suitable for mixed gender events.

Parties are designed to run from 60-90 minutes.
You can wear whatever you like.

We do not serve alcohol or food during parties.
Time to stop for drinks or snacks is not built into the class structure.

Please include your date, time, number of people in your party, and number of your preferred type of party in every email of our correspondence.

"It was AWESOME! Thank you!" - Robyn Z
"We had such a wonderful time at our party. Gal is such an incredible instructor and so hilarious. Definitely going to tell everyone I know how much fun we had and so is everyone at the party! Everyone is still talking about it today and I know it was the energy that Gal was able to create that helped get everyone into pasties to twirl! Can't wait to go see her in action at the Slipper Room. Thank you so much again, my only regret is that I wish I had planned the party with you from the start!" -- Jodie L
"AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!!! Thank you so much for such an amazing time on Saturday night. The entire group had a ball and everyone of them talked about what a unique idea it was. Darlinda was beyond wonderful. She was sweet and funny and made everyone feel so comfortable! Again, thank you so much! I will tell everyone I know about you guys and will definitely be using the School of Burlesque for parties in the future!!" -Bonnie H
"I just wanted to take a moment to let you know what a success and delightful experience it was to work with all of you! I recently booked a bachelorette party with the New York School of Burlesque. From the very first email, I knew I had made the right choice. Michelle was terrific; stayed in constant contact with me and even went above and beyond helping me with the booking process. With my crazy work schedule, she was well beyond accommodating. On the day of the event, I was delighted to receive a phone call from Gal Friday, introducing herself and giving me her number in case there were any questions or concerns. Though I arrived with my group a bit flustered, Gal Friday made us feel welcome and soon all our problems were forgotten. Everyone had an amazing time! Gal Friday's enthusiasm and expertise made us feel completely at ease and her love of burlesque was infectious. All the girls who have attended have done nothing but rave about the whole experience. Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my grateful heart. You have created a fan for life in me (and many others). You can expect to see us again!! Sincerely (one very satisfied customer)," - Susan T
"We absolutely adored the class!!! It was incredible and Jo was an absolute inspiration. We could not have been more comfortable or had a better time. We have been telling everyone we can about the class and I feel 100% sure you will get a few referrals from our group. Really, the class was not only fun, but informative. I feel like we all walked away smiling and with not only some fascinating new talents :-), but with a true appreciation for the artform, history and fabulous women of burlesque. Please thank Jo for us. She is an amazing woman and an incredible teacher. Thanks also to Gal Friday who was awesome at the Slipper Room (we stopped in to see the show after our class)! We will all be back for more classes and can not wait to do it again! Thanks so much for helping us to set up the class and keep up the good work there! I wish all women would take the time to learn a little burlesque. The world would be a nicer and sexier place!!! Thanks a million! - Jennifer
"Thank you so much. We had a blast. Darlinda was professional, fun and extremely talented." - Diana D
