Ever wanted to try burlesque, but have no idea where to start?

Well, you've come to the right place!

Lilly Loca is an experienced teacher, actress and burlesque performer who will teach you the basics of burlesque in a fun, vivacious and supportive atmosphere.

The workshop will comprise of an intimate and fun class environment, where Lilly will warm you up, teach you the etiquette of posing and accentuating your best bits, teach you some classic burlesque moves (i.e. the "bump n' grind", "the showgirl") and then allow for you to create your own burlesque routine to some classic big band burlesque music.

Note: There will be moves in which Lilly will teach you how to take off gloves, boas, skirts/dresses, etc.. but you can choose to opt in and out of movements if you so wish.

Please ensure you wear the following:

* A dress or skirt & top (make sure you can move in it - the more movement the better!)
* Medium high heels (or higher if you can handle it!)
* 1 pair of gloves & 1 feather boa (search any $2.00 store for practice ones)
* Stockings & suspenders are OPTIONAL, but should be in every Burly-Q girls wardrobe and would be preferable!

A copy of some classic burlesque songs also come as a part of the package so you can take your gorgeous burlesque moves home with you and start creating your own unique acts!

This workshop is limited to 12 people only, so make sure you get in quick! This workshop will only go ahead if more than four bookings have been made by Monday 13th May. You will be contacted if the workshop does not go ahead and refunded by Eventfinda.
