Without dance, people could only hum along to "Macarena," and Jane Austen characters would be forced to say what was really on their minds. Let movements speak with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

This 90-minute, no-nudity class begins with a brief history lesson about modern burlesque's rich history as a sensual art form designed by women, for women. Students then learn to strut, bump, grind, and twirl tassels with confidence and grace. Everyone will leave the class able to perform a complete routine, after going through The Burlesque Academy's impressive costume trunk and posing for photos with giant feather fans. Classes are currently scheduled on Saturday afternoon and Thursday night. A Tuesday-evening class may also be added based on demand.

The Burlesque Academy

Feathered fans, fluffy stoles, beaded tassels—costume designer, producer, and dancer Lola LaBelle wants to give every woman the chance to dig into the decadent textures of the burlesque tradition. In classes that range from lighthearted introductions to the form through advanced act development, Lola and her instructors emphasize empowerment as much as sensuality. Private parties let women learn to strut their stuff in the supportive company of friends, though no one in the regular small-group courses will bat an eye if someone embarrassingly ties her corset with a sheepshank knot instead of a half hitch.
