Saturday 18th January 2020


1 – 3:00pm: Sex on Legs

3:00 – 5:00pm: Burlesque Business Bombshell

Metro Arts - The Whitlam Space - Level 4.

109 Edward Street, Brisbane QLD 4000.



In this 2-hour workshop the group will go over the many techniques of how to channel real sexual energy on stage!


If your goal is to be a performer who really knows how to sex it up for their audience (at home or on stage), then this is a great workshop to take. After many years of working in Europe where women have no reservations when it comes to being extra sexy, Viola has learnt the techniques for becoming more genuinely sensual and vulnerable while delivering a burlesque striptease.

Losing inhibitions and expressing raw sensuality is not always easy to do when being focused on choreography, costume, character etc. This class is about how to break those barriers and serve natural sex on legs all over that stage!

The techniques learnt will be put into a hot little floor routine!

This workshop is suitable for all levels of fitness and experience
