CLASS LEVEL OVERVIEW

BEGINNER: For those who are new to burlesque or want to polish their skills. 

We recommend that all students start with a dedicated beginner class to learn the history and essential moves of burlesque. If you have a dance or performance background, one or two terms of beginner may suffice, though you’re welcome to take as many beginner classes as you choose as the routines change each term.

OPEN/ALL LEVELS: Suited to absolutely everyone! Once you’re comfortable with your skills learnt in Beginner classes, move to Open classes to try new styles and develop further. If a Beginner class doesn’t suit your schedule, start with an Open class.

INTERMEDIATE: Suited to those with 2+ years of Burlesque experience and/or dance training in modern styles.

ADVANCED: Suited to those with 3+ years of Burlesque experience and/or significant, recent dance training in modern styles.
