This four-week course teaches all the basics of burlesque: dance moves, striptease fundamentals, and so much more fun stuff. This week's move is Tassel Twirling -- the ultimate burlesque trick! The striptease lesson is Removing a Bra and The Big Reveal. For extra fun, we'll be playing with Feather Boas, that quintessential burlesque accessory.
