Am I too old/young/short/overweight/clumsy/disabled/inexperienced/shy to take burlesque?
As long as you are over 18 you can take a class! If you are concerned about your physical or emotional ability, or other ablities in relation to a specific class contact me and we can discuss what your needs are and how we can make burlesque part of your life!

Can men take your classes?
The fan dance class, burlesque workout, boa classes and any other non-stripping classes as well as private lessons are open to any men interested in learning. We do welcome transgendered women to any of our classes. We do not have specific Boylesque classes at this time, but we may in the future, so please subscribe to our newsletter.

What do I wear to class?
I suggest yoga pants, dance skirts, fitted t-shirts, anything you can move in that is not too baggy or loose. Shoes should be non-scuffing flexible heels, exercize or dance shoes. Unless it's a craft class, and then you can wear anything you want! There is a nice changing room in the studio.
