12-1 – HerstoryIt is so important to know your burlesque history. Learn where burlesque came from and why these women are pioneers that deserve the utmost respect. Franky Vivid will take you from the start all through the present day. Bring a notebook.

1:15-2:15 – Walk This WayThe walk is the most important part of a striptease. A good walk can completely captivate an audience.

JULY 11 – Take the whole day for $65 for each class for $25.

  • 1:15 – 2:15 – Hot Hip Hop – This class will leave you feeling good with new moves and a nice sweat! I will bring you choreography that will be a sexy burlesque twist on a down & dirty hip hop dance. Please wear gym shoes or dance shoes and workout wear. No experience necessary.
  • 2:30 – 3:30Music for Burlesque Dancers – Music is your partner in dance. A dancer must know how to use the music, especially when working with a live band or while creating a new act. Franky Vivid, an accomplished musician, will take you through different types of striptease music and show you the similarities and differences. You’ve worked on having a body for dance and now is the time to get an ear for music!
  • 3:45 – 4:45Burlesque Blues – You definitely will NOT have the blues after this class! I will lead you in a burlesque class done to LIVE accompaniment by guitarist, Alan Stehman. Be prepared to move and grove and incorporate the ideas learned in the Music class.

JULY 12 – Take the whole day for $65 for each class for $25.

  • 12 – 1 – Style & Grace – Combine the style & grace of a ballerina with the raw sexuality of a burlesque dancer. I will take you through hand and arm movements that will really accentuate your tease. We will also discuss body lines and move seamlessly from one to another.
  • 1:15 – 2:15 – What a Heel! – Learn once and for all how to walk in heels. You can bring in multiple pairs of heels so you can start in a smaller heel and then work up to those gorgeous shoes that you love but can’t walk in! I will teach you foot strengthening exercises so that you can continue to practice your heel game at home.
  • 2:30 – 3:30 – Get Stoned! – Rhinestoned, that is… Frenchie Kiss is the Temptress of Twirl, but she is also the Sovereign of Sparkle! Learn how to make a dazzling impression with your costumes  working with stones of all kinds – from acryllics to cabachons to Swarovskis. You’ll also learn how to work with trims, sequins and appliques. Bring a costume piece or bra to work on in this hands-on class.

See you soon!
