Burlesque performers are known for their ability to twirl tassels, which is why many were hired in early attempts to power the Wright brothers' airplanes. Fuel tempting trips with today's Groupon: for $50, you get four introductory burlesque classes at Boston Academy of Burlesque Education (B.A.B.E.) in Allston (up to a $120 value).

Recognized as the Best Burlesque of 2011 by the Boston Phoenix, seduction instructors at the Boston Academy of Burlesque Education help dancers shake inhibitions in order to slip confidently into their own skins. Ladies study striptease fundamentals during weekly 90-minute classes that break the cornerstones of cabaret moves into easily pocketed pebbles. Instructors introduce different skills every week, training fingers to peel away long silken gloves, unbutton blouses, or sensually unfurl treasure maps. Booties and backs incorporate a growing vocabulary of movement including the bump, grind, and shimmy to enrapture audiences with each flick of a hip. Each week builds on skills taught earlier in the month, culminating in a final exam of removing a bra to reveal twirlable pasties, although students are encouraged to dress according to their personal comfort level.

Modest bodies can sport spandex tops and shorts on more risqué days, and all students spirit intimates from home for practicing clothing-specific reveals. Tips on music accompaniment, costumes, and how to captivate an audience round out the school's celebration of curves, producing confident dancers with ample knowledge to create their own sultry routines, graduate to intermediate classes, or ask big spenders about their future investments.
