Some of these include "glamouring" mysteries - ways to magnetize yourself and project your inner beauty. These secrets will help you become radiant and learn how to light up a room. Veronica will also show you secret meanings behind classic movements to use in a burlesque routine to make you feel like the sultry seductress you are! Empowering and Enchanting.....this class will show you all the ropes of spellbinding seduction!

Meals are not permitted in the space, though small snacks are fine; just be sure you take everything with you that you brought. The space must be left clean and ready for the next artists to enter for their class that begins at 4 pm.

Here's your chance to work with Veronica Varlow, coach on MTV's Emmy-Award Winning show Made, in an intimate class offered for New York School of Burlesque Students only! Sign up quickly - this class has been sold out every time it's been offered!

This class is for female-identified people only.

There is not a showcase or performance as part of this class, but you can perform in NYSB student showcases. Email to be notified when there are openings in showcases.

Veronica's class is highly interactive, starting in a circle discussion to get everyone confident and comfortable. There is absolutely NO dance experience required - Veronica's burlesque acts are known for their slow, defined sensuality. Students will learn simple seductive moves that they can take home to create their own routines and unique burlesque persona.

As Veronica displayed as a coach and teacher on MTV - what she is best at is helping to discover and bring out what is best about YOU! You will leave this course with a new understanding of seduction and tools you can use immediately. Veronica will focus on many different ways to bring out your inner beauty and how to create a "signature" look to make you absolutely unforgettable!

Learn what your burlesque archetype is, learn what styles and era works best for you, and learn how to keep all eyes on YOU.

The class will also include a dance segment to pepper your burlesque moves with magic and allure! Learn the techniques of the tease and implements of seduction.

The class is part-mental, part-physical; the goal is to learn how to weave magic into your performance. There will be handout questions to go deeper into bringing out your femme fatale. It's part movement, part workbook, lecture, qna, and circle talking.
