Classic Moves of Burlesque

Learn the sexy shimmy,
the tantalizing glove peel,
the devastating bump n grind, and the dazzling tassel-twirl
from an internationally recognized striptease expert
with decades of performing experience.
Many of my former students perform in New York
at prestigious burlesque venues.
You can, too!
Or, you can take a burlesque workshop simply because
the workshop itself is a party!
It's even more fun when you bring a friend!
Boas, gloves, shimmy fringe, and pasties will be provided.
This class is for women only.

You'll get the basics of the history of burlesque and striptease as an artform, plus you'll hear plenty of stories of how I learned each move from each amazing performer. We'll talk briefly about costuming, getting gigs, the history of the Burlesque Hall of Fame and burlesque in Coney Island, where to see burlesque shows in NYC, and more!

You'll learn techniques for twirling nipple tassels to the left, to the right, in, out, one at a time, and on your back!
Boas gloves and pasties provided for loan in the class.

After years of desk jockeying for "the man", this Gal Friday decided to take her talents and apply them to the stage. The lady that once typed 70 words a minute, equipped with a clever quip playing on her lip, is now one of New York's Burly-Q bombshells. She co-produces "The Skullduggery & Skin Show" in Washington D.C. Miss Friday has the honor of being nominated for a Golden Pastie for 'Best Newcomer 2007' at the NY Burlesque Festival, winning the title of Starshine Summer Starlet 2007, and recently being crowned "Miss Coney Island." Truly, hiding a gal like this behind a desk would be a crime!!!"

The New York School of Burlesque
This course was created by New York School of Burlesque Headmistress and Founder Jo Weldon. She has learned directly from the ladies who performed during the golden age of twentieth century striptease, and her protegee Gal Friday, who performed at the 2008 Miss Exotic World Pageant at the Palms in Las Vegas, is ready to show you the best of the best!
