Burlesque & Exhibitionism Basics for the Shy & Awkward
Tuesday, September 10th
6:30pm – 8:30pm
$20 in advance, $25 at the door
Burlesque isn't just for Miss and Mister Natural-Born Exhibitionist -- and exhibitionism can be an acquired skill! This class is for the sexy bookworms and the flirty Frasier enthusiasts who yearn to bust a burlesque move, dress for excess, and welcome a sexier and more confident self into being. Learn the difference between a shimmy and a bump and the power of eye contact, choose your burlesque alter ego, and practice your new moves. Get all the secrets to pasty making and learn where to acquire the hottest wardrobe, too! You'll go home with the skills to be the star of your own personal sexy show--and the confidence to strut your stuff on the street at the Folsom Street Fair!
Virgie Tovar doubles as Dulce de Lecherous, the editor of Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love, & Fashion and your Burlesque Basics instructor. This class is open to men and women, butches, bois, queens -- and everybody else! -- of all sizes and (18+) ages.
