Thank YOU!

If I don’t say it often enough, thank YOU! I appreciate you being a fan and for your support over the years. I would not have a job if it weren’t for you. I love bringing you entertainment and instruction but to me, it’s more than that. It’s about a connection. I love hearing from you and seeing you at class or at shows. You are special to me and I deeply value you. I’m biased but I think my fans are the BEST fans.

I hope that you all have a stress free holiday. That’s certainly my goal! To help with that goal, I’ll be teaching 2 workshops at Studio L’amour on Sunday. Plan on sweating and stretching out any of your Thanksgiving woes! We’re in this together!

Nov 26 – Tease ‘n’ Tone – 5:30-6:30 – Register 

Tryptophan got ya trippin’? Work out that turkey and feel guilty no more during the holidays! Tease ‘n’ Tone will get you moving, toning and sweating!

Michelle L’amour’s acclaimed “Tease-N-Tone” class shows you how to work your body like a burlesque beauty in a way that makes exercising both fun and sexy. You will learn low-impact burlesque cardio routines and then tone and stretch at the end of class. Please wear gym shoes and bring a mat.

Nov 26 – Sensual Movement – 6:45-7:45 – Register 

Take a moment and indulge in yourself. This class is filled with slow, graceful, sensual movements all done in candlelight, the sexiest of all lights. It is a relaxing moving meditation that will leave you feeling tingly all over! No experience necessary.

ONLINE BURLESQUE CLASSES

I’m excited to announce that I am teaching ONLINE burlesque classes! Now you can learn from me anywhere in the world! I have been using Patreon for a few months as a platform for my fan club and I got the idea that this platform could work well for an online school. Patreon makes it easy to choose your level based on the things you would like to learn.  If you are burlesque curious, fitness minded, or a seasoned pro, there is something here for you.

As I have run Studio L’amour in Chicago for 9 years, I know the obstacles in getting to class. You don’t have the time, your friend can’t make it, you’re sick, you’re nervous about what to expect, etc. Well, now, you have all the time in the world and you can do it in the privacy in your own home so there’s nothing to be nervous about! Join the online world of Studio L’amour and learn the art of the tease with me!

Showgirl Style

Thank you for a fantastic birthday week and for coming out to my birthday show at Untitled. I LOVE jumping out of cakes!

Now, there are lots of fun things going on this week, not to mention my fresh excitement about dancing! I went to a ballet class for the first time in years last night and I’m just buzzing about it. But, more on that some other time.

First, my new TeaseTip is up at BurlyQ.com. It’s all about what is takes to follow your dreams and how important the ‘hustle’ is when you’re in the arts. I’m really enjoying writing these expanded Tease Tips, so I hope you will check it out.

Second, on April 23, Studio L’amour is having another Studio L’amour Teaser! This is a showcase of students, teachers and performers from the Chicago cabaret scene. It’s a very informal gathering to encourage the growth and development of acts in our city. I’ll be hosting, and that is always a fun time! Hope to see you there!

Finally, the new session is now available for Studio L’amour. Classes begin again on May 1st. I’ll be teaching a new class called ‘Showgirl’. It’s going to be an hour of parading, posing and prancing! Make sure to register for this and other classes here.
