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.
