Online Series Through Zoom With Subscription Box Service

Who doesn't enjoy getting presents in the mail?

Essential Tease is excited to announce a new burlesque class series that focuses on how to “burlesque your life” from the inside out! These classes feature our signature style of instruction and are geared specifically towards our daily lives at home. We'll practice meditation, magical rituals, and movement authentic to our souls. Plus, you'll receive all of the materials you'll need for each of our lessons (including hand-made costume pieces, tools of the trade, and ritual components) mailed right to your door. This is the first-ever combined burlesque subscription box and class series!

Our all-virtual eight-week series of classes culminates in a custom final presentation that matches what you have identified as your divine goal. With us, you can create what your heart needs, whether that means practical self-love steps, artistic projects, community events, or burlesque performance pieces. Welcome to your new normal: burlesquing your life!
