Internationally known burlesque star Lola van Ella captains VanElla Studios, home of burlesque-infused dance and cardio classes that are “pure fun,” according to St. Louis Magazine. Clients can build confidence and performance repertoires in a panoply of body-positive classes, such as Burlesque Basics 1, which covers moves such as the shimmy, the bump-and-grind, and boa-wielding, which teaches guests how to seductively fashion a lasso out of a boa constrictor to reach coconuts for survival. For a higher-octane workout, rug-cutters with some dance experience can enroll in the hip-hop sequence, whose fast-paced choreography matches a soundtrack of rap and R & B tracks. In each class, an average of 10 students follow in the footsteps of instructors with professional dance experience.
Alternatively, clients can opt for a 10-person private party to honor occasions such as birthdays, upcoming nuptials, and the evasion of clingy 11th wheels. Instructors begin each playful 90-minute session by coaching troupes through basic burlesque moves, closing with a combination of each move into a single sassy routine. For a fee, hosts can augment their events with activities, such as crafting custom-tasseled pasties to spice up otherwise-boring mortarboards.
