You've learned some burlesque moves but you want to take your tease to the next level. Now what? How do you put your personal spin on all those bumps and grinds to create one smooth, sexy number? Burlesque Your Way will show you how! This class is designed for those students with basic burlesque training who want to develop a striptease routine from start to finish and perform it for an audience.  This intensive course covers everything from picking music to costuming to story-line and choreography. Throughout the class, students will polish their burlesque skills, while learning performance tips and getting advice and guidance on all aspects of burlesque performance from Miss Mina (B.A.B.E. headmistress) and Ol' Scratch (Boston BeauTease director). Burlesque Your Way is recommend for students who have taken our Introduction to Burlesque classes or who have had some other burlesque instruction.

In this six-week course, students will develop their own complete burlesque routine.  Students who successfully complete the course will be able to perform their creations at a Student Showcase in early January.

Enrollment in this intimate and intensive class is limited to ten students to ensure that each student is afforded the personalized coaching she needs to perfect her routine.
