About Burlesque 101

What will I learn?Ruby by Ji Ji Lee
In the 6-week Burlesque 101 workshop you will learn the history and background of Burlesque as a performance art form. You’ll learn about how to develop a character, create an act, and choreograph a striptease to music. You’ll learn performance skills, and finally have the opportunity to perform in front of a live audience in a small, intimate venue.

What should I wear?
Whatever you want! Group classes are taught in a conversational format, except for the occasional movement exercise. Individual private rehearsals are taught in an experiential format, where you and your instructors will work together to choreograph and refine your routine.

How many students are in a class?
No more than 14 students are in any 101 workshop, which guarantees lots of individual attention.

Do I have to perform in pasties?
Many students do choose to perform in pasties, but it’s totally up to the individual performer what they want to wear for their costume on stage. All performers must comply with local liquor laws with respect to nudity.
