The Future of Studio L’amour

My burlesque school, Studio L’amour is coming up on 10 years in Chicago! The Dojo for your Mojo has been the home to hundreds of women who have found confidence and self esteem through the practice of burlesque. We are so honored to have been the place where vulnerability, fun, sexiness, and strength reside.
 
The studio has been through many changes over the years and is about to undergo another one. Since I have been traveling and producing so much these past few years, I think it is best to operate the studio in a different manner. Studio L’amour will primarily be an online burlesque school. I added this to the curriculum in June and have really enjoyed making videos for my students there. I put up new videos every month and they feature technique, fitness, choreography and real talks where I answer questions. This has been very rewarding for me as I am able to have students from all over the world and I”m not just limited to a physical space.
As for Studio L’amour as a physical space, I will be offering monthly workshops, as will the other teachers. There will not be regular weekly classes as of March 1st. I know this will be very upsetting to some of you, as burlesque is incredibly addicting, but it is for the best. I see the future of Studio L’amour as a kind of ’boutique burlesque school’. It will be a place where you can refine your craft but also a place for newcomers to explore their sexuality.
I am very thankful to my teachers over the years: Lady Ginger, Frenchie Kiss, Kami Oh, Vivian Velvet, Fanny Tastic, Ivy Fabulous, Lily Bloom, Sasha Darling, Midnite Martini, Gaea Lady, Dahlia Fatale and Mary Pat LeTourneau. Because of them, we were able to offer THE BEST burlesque education in Chicago.
I’m very excited about the future of the studio and the new freedom we have! I hope to see you online or in my workshops! Oh, and bachelorettes, we’ve still got you covered! You can schedule a private class for your party any time.
Thank you for your continued love and support over the years. Stay tuned for March workshops!

Valentine’s Day Burlesque

First of all, my thanks for the huge amount of support and love you’ve shown me since the Big Reveal. I’m so touched to have fans as beautiful as you!

Second, I’m heading to Los Angeles to premiere a brand NEW act at Lucha Va Voom on Feb 14th and 15th! This will be the first time that I will perform with my natural hair! I’m so excited and I can’t wait to share video with you, or do it for you in person if you’re in the area. I hope you are!

 

Then, the Valentine’s Day plans continue in Chicago on Feb 17th for Naked Girls Reading: Bad Romance. Join me at Studio L’amour for stories of love, broken hearts and passionate affairs! Tickets

Happy Valentine’s Day!

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!

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.

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.
