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.
