Information or bookings: Mail


Fun filled Burlesque workshop where you can learn to tease like Dita von Teese,
like a (Bettie Page) pin-up girl, and be as sexy as Marilyn Monroe.

Discover the Diva, Femme Fatale, Bad Girl or Comedy Queen in yourself. You'll learn how to develop your burlesque alter-ego. At the end, you and your group will be a bonafide bevy of burlesque starlettes by putting on your own little burlesque show for each other. But during this workshop you also will get to know your friends (and yourself) a little bit better, all via humor and theatrical games. The main person (bachelorette, birthday girl) will be put in the centre of attention in a fun way.

There is no nudity during this burlesque workshop (unless you want to: we do have pasties/tassles and professional glue etc. available). It's not just about striptease or only a choreography. The teacher who is also a drama teacher, burlesque starlet and comedienne, uses the burlesque theme for a series of fun practices. It's not about how to tease a man, but about celebrating your femininity and having fun with your girlfriends!
You could bring: showclothing (clothing that makes you feel sexy) or easy fitting clothing, We have large feathered fans, hats, gloves, lace umbrellas etc. for you to use (borrow).

Price for the Burlesque Workshop is 35- Euro Per person
including glass of Prosecco and fingerfood. (minimum 8 persons)

Today, burlesque is nothing short of an art form. Performers both male and female combine the most explosive aspects of costumery, dance, comedy and theater in a type of live entertainment that, of course, places nudity on a pedestal. Dita Von Teese and World Famous BOB have turned the tassel-friendly genre of performance into an evolving practice that challenges everything conventional -- from gender politics to sexuality and the public's perception of the naked body.

Burlesque has historic roots in America's minstrel culture, dating as far back as the 1840s. However, the version we know today -- a marriage of vaudevillian humor and striptease -- became popular in the early 1900s, when (mostly women) performers took to clubs and Broadway venues with their own brand of music, dance and provocative nudity. The era of Prohibition took a toll on the burlesque industry, as teetotaling politicians and authority figures took issue with both the performers and club owners that made burlesque possible. Thankfully, the genre bit back in the 1950s, as women like Sally Rand, Gypsy Rose Lee, Tempest Storm, Lili St. Cyr, and Blaze Starr emerged as boundary-pushing icons.
