So you've conquered "Introduction to Burlesque" and are now beyond "Burlesque for Beginners" – now what? If you're ready to take the next step on your journey to diva-hood, this intermediate-level class is for you! Each class series will focus on a variety of burlesque techniques that take what you learned in Introduction to Burlesque to a whole new level. Students will learn more advanced moves and removes and how to develop their own burlesque style.
