Leeds Burlesque presents our next beginners' burlesque course taught by IDTA qualified teacher Lady Wildflower.
ABOUT THE CLASSES:
Lady Wildflower’s Burlesque classes are for ladies of ANY age, shape or ability. Lose your inhibitions. Learn to be confident, feel sexy and glamorous and to love the skin you’re in. Have fun, meet like-minded women and add some sparkle to your life!
Inspired by the showgirls of the Golden Age of Burlesque (1930's-1950's) as well as modern neo-burlesque artists, Lady Wildflower's classes are suitable for all women* who want to explore their own femininity & sexuality in a fun, friendly, safe and non-judgmental environment. She aims to promote confidence in body and creativity whilst enabling women to develop grace and poise.
Discover the art of the tease: Learn how to engage with your audience, how to pose like a pin-up, how to strut your stuff with confidence (in heels!) and how to bump'n'grind like Bettie Page! Have fun with feather boas and learn a fabulous group routine at the end of the course.
Suitable for those who want to perform as well as those who don't. No previous dance experience necessary and those with 2 left feet are more than welcome! There is NO nudity involved in this course and you can wear whatever you feel good in.
(There will be an opportunity to continue to an Intermediate Course for those who wish to do so after the Beginners' course.)

TESTIMONIALS FROM STUDENTS:
«I started burlesque lessons for a bit of fun but got so much more out of it! I made some great friends, got fit, learnt to walk and dance in high heels and my confidence in myself and my body is through the roof! Feather boas and strutting my stuff have made me a happier person and I can't recommend it enough!»
