Travels and Classes

Many thanks to all who came out to support Superstars of Burlesque.  The shows were a huge success, as were the classes at Studio L’amour.  Thank you for being such a great audience!

If you’ve caught the burlesque bug, the new basic burlesque session begins the week of September 24th with Frenchie Kiss and Lady Ginger.  The basic class is required before taking any other class at Studio L’amour, no matter your previous dance experience.  It is a perfect introduction to the history and fundamental moves of burlesque.  [Register] now!

The [Winter Schedule] (session starts the week of Oct. 22) is now available.  The featured specialty class is ‘Get Floored’.  We will cover all aspects of floor work.  Getting up, getting down, stretching, arching, etc. [Registration] is available for all classes.

And, if you’ll be in Montreal Sept. 27-29, I will be performing in the Montreal Burlesque Festival.  You’ll see an old favorite and a new favorite from me.  A bientot!
