Fun filled Burlesque workshop where you can learn to tease like Dita von Teese,
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!
Price for the Burlesque Workshop is 35- Euro Per person
All our teachers have been involved in
the neo-burlesque movement
for many years.

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.
