Thick thighs save lives, and a good pair of thigh highs look phenomenal on everyone. But it takes a good amount of effort to make the graceful removal of thigh highs look absolutely effortless. In this workshop we will be practicing the artful placement of our glorious booties onto a chair as we learn the gooey deliciousness that is thigh high removal.

Thigh highs are necessary for this class. Bring your own, or reserve your pair with me for an additional $15. And make note what size is best for you.

Garter belts are not necessary, but are available for an additional $20 if paid in advance. Garter belts and thigh highs can be bought together for $30.

All levels, genders, orientations and backgrounds welcome, no dance experience necessary. Every body is a burlesque body!

Mother's Day Burlesque Workshop with Kinky Slippers - POSTPONED
Date: Sunday, May 10, 2020
Workshop 1 - Beginner Props: 12:45 PM (1 hour)
Workshop 1 - Glamour: 2:00 PM (1 hour)
Rate: $25 per workshop OR $75 for Mom + 1 offspring to take both workshops!
Registration: Sign up online here
Contact: Email Kinky Slippers with any questions.

Workshop 1: Beginner Props – 12:45 pm (1 hour)
In the first hour we will explore the basics of burlesque props. We will be working with gloves, boas, and a little basic chair work. Feel graceful and a little mysterious as we move through the foundations of burlesque strip tease and learn how to leave them wanting more. 😉

Workshop 2: Glamour – 2 pm (1 hour)
Then we will be learning the basics of what we know as ‘classic burlesque’. We will take our time walking with confidence, moving our hips in slow circular ‘grinds’, and adding the occasional hip ‘bump’. Move slowly through vintage combinations while we dance to burlesque jazz classics like “Harlem Nocturne” and “The Stripper” and let loose to that sexy saxophone sound!

People of all levels, genders and backgrounds are welcome, no dance experience necessary. 18+.

Every workshop is accessible for the complete beginner, absolutely no experience necessary. Props will be provided, and available for sale at the end of every class. Workshops never involve nor require nudity of any kind. Heels you feel comfortable dancing in are recommended. Barefoot is also acceptable. No shoes that have been outside are to be worn inside the studio.
