Come play with us! We will hand you a fabulous boa, put you in a pair of glamourous satin gloves, and teach you a classic burlesque routine on the very first day. Even with no experience or dance training, you can learn the basics of boa-flinging, glove-peeling, chair dance, fan dance, tassel-twirling, and more! Check out Essential Burlesque!

You can start this month!

Our "Flirting with Burlesque" class features a burlesque routine for every level.

In January our fulltime schedule resumes with Essential Burlesque, Act Development, Flirting with Burlesque, and an open Student Showcase!

If you're interested in individual one-on-one professional instruction and choreography, we offer private instruction on an hourly basis. If you're interested in private group instruction for you and your friends, we can do that too! You can use our props (boas, gloves, pasties, fans, etc.), or with enough advance notice, we can provide props you and your friends can keep! We can also recommend performers, shows, and costumers. Email glitter@schoolofburlesque.com for more information.
