Burlesque Bikini Boot Camp Loves You!
From Our Editors
Sally Blenkey-Tchassova (alias Lady Chardonnay) had a singular vision when she founded Burlesque Bikini Boot Camp: empower women and free them from being overly critical of their bodies. "The essence of burlesque dancing is to have fun, to play a character, and to … express yourself in a different way," she explained in a segment on the Today Show. Her innovative burlesque dancing is grounded in the rigorous technicality of ballet, largely due to her partner Teresa Kliokis (alias Pink Champagne), an acclaimed ballerina, as well as her collection of spinning tops. The two teach sultry moves to female students, blending the duo's diverse backgrounds into a new burlesque dance. The classes are suitable for dancers of all skill levels, and they often end with yogic stretching to relax muscles post workout.
