Welcome to our Fall 2019 Burlesque Prep Academy
YOU MUST BE 21 YEARS OF AGE AS OF OCTOBER 20 TO ATTEND THESE CLASSES
ABSOLUTELY NO REFUNDS FOR ANY REASON. Please read each price description very carefully.
ALL HUMANS WELCOME regardless of gender identity, ethnicity, age, ability, spiritual or political beliefs. No negativity or judgement will be tolerated.
The Principal Dancers of VivaVoom Brr-Lesque will teach you the basics of this distinctly American art form, and will help you to develop a stellar act for our Student Showcase on Saturday, December 28. PLUS you’ll receive a photo shoot with a professional photographer! In addition, you’ll receive photos of your performance. Performance video will be available for a small fee.
OR take the classes and opt out of the performance and photo shoot for a smaller fee. You'll still learn everything you need to know for a private performance at home!
Already a performer? Fine-tune a piece and wow your patrons with a highly-refined and stunning act.
It's a fun weekly activity, just for YOU, in the company of a group of very supportive people. Give yourself permission to create!
