The Burlesque Pole Dance class adds dance moves, hats, and canes to toning pole-dance techniques, and cocreator and burlesque artist known as Pyrrha Sutra asks students to bring a feather boa, gloves, and ballroom heels to the basic Burlesque Dance class, where she'll show just how to use them.

Like the opposite of eyelids, the curtains at Scandalesque open to a dream world of garish costumes, pyrotechnics, circus arts, and sensuality. This nexus of fantasy and real life is produced in-house and performed by Scandalesque’s troupe of professional burlesque artists. Leading them, cofounders Lady Fontayne and Pyrrha Sutra, as they're known on stage, strive to curate an atmosphere where outlandishness flashes atop proper technique and artistry. When the troupe isn’t pushing the envelope and toppling mailmen, they’re teaching burlesque, adult-dance, and fitness classes throughout the week.
