Like The Art of War, the art of seduction stresses the importance of maneuvering carefully, varying tactics, and attacking with sparkly tassels. Captivate your audience with today's Groupon: for $70, you get an eight-week Basic Burlesque I course at Vaudezilla (a $140 Value).

The talented vixens of Vaudezilla teach the art of seduction to aspiring divas of all abilities, inspiring the Chicago Reader to dub them Chicago's Best Burlesque Groupe. Taught by one of the experienced resident performers, the eight-week basic burlesque course introduces novice flirters to fundamental stage terminology and the exact chemical mixture for love potion while encouraging self-expression through movement. Each 90-minute class commences with a brief warm up before intensive drills test damsels' abilities to seductively shimmy, twirl, and bump. Students can then learn a series of short, choreographed dances that string together moves to tantalize a loved one or inspire jealously in a pompous goldfish.


Putting together 200 burlesque shows in four years takes heartfelt dedication and an inordinate supply of pasties. For Vaudezilla founders Red Hot Annie and Dick Dijon, it was a dream come true. Their saucy theatrics have entertained audiences all over Chicago with monthly shows such as "Lincoln Fair" and the long-running, critically acclaimed burlesque parody of The Big Lebowski, which received four-star acclaim in Chicago Stage Review. The crew at Vaudezilla has also worked to innovate the art form, assembling live-band burlesque shows and story-based burlesque theater at Stage 773. In 2011, Vaudezilla opened its Belmont Avenue studio, where professional and amateur performers rehearse for shows, take belly-dance and Zumba classes, and learn the art of burlesque, which was perfected decades ago by 20th-century sex symbol Burl Ives.

    “Great class - Po'Chop is a FABULOUS teacher. Understand that the class is working to learn a dance that will be performed at the student showcase, so you have a chance to learn and use more than just the moves for at-home performances. Part of the class is learning standard moves/eye-contact/body confidence, while the other is a choreographed dance.”

  • “Take a class with Po' Chop, She's awesome!”

  • “What a wonderful class! So glad I did this!”
