School of Burlesque

We run a number of different workshops and classes to suit different levels of experience or inclination.

 

‘It’s not what you do. It’s the way you do it – stripping, or writing, or talking . . . or just breathing. Do it with an air, and never admit you’re scared.’
Gypsy Rose Lee
