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!
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.
