Do you have an established idea for a burlesque act and just need the encouragement and accountability to see it through? Over four weeks, we will guide you through an accelerated act creation workshop that takes you from basic concept to final product. Currently, these workshops are only offered virtually.


In addition to our core classes above, our instructors frequently teach independent classes that specialize in a variety of areas and still contain our Essential Tease vision for burlesque. These are great options if you'd like just a little teaser of our world or if you just can't get enough of us!
