with Gypsy Charms

Beginners: Slip on your seamed stockings and opera gloves, as Gypsy guides you through the glamorous world of retro burlesque striptease; introducing you to the art of ‘tease’, tassel twirling and the inimitable bump ‘n’ grind. Each week you will bring different items of clothing to incorporate them into dance routines. These classes are guaranteed to make you feel sassy and confident, whisking you away into a world of glamour and humour – be prepared to realise your alter-ego!

Please note there are no drop-ins available for Burlesque Beginners. Please book the full course.

Improvers: This class concentrates on the ‘3 Cs’ of burlesque – concept, character and choreography – as well as advanced peeling, posing and teasing techniques. This season, the course will include new routines, as well as the opportunity to work towards a performance piece.

Please wear small heels if you are comfortable dancing in them. You will be advised on what else to bring week by week.  Over 18s only.
