Unleash your inner diva! Join the Cheesecakes for a super fun burlesque workshop where participants will learn about the history of burlesque, how to bump, grind, shimmy, shake, and tassel twirl! Spend the evening with a group of fabulous, like-minded women and leave feeling great in your body and about yourself. One participant in Surrey said “Every woman walked out of there that night with a smile on her face, a strut in her step, and in many cases, some pasties in her purse.” Students with a ticket to the show have the option to join the Cheesecakes briefly on stage during the performance to strut their stuff.* Workshop participants should bring: shoes of their choice for dancing, clothing comfortable for moving around, water, and feel free to GLAM IT UP!!! Boas, gloves, and tassels will be supplied for participants to use.
Usual age restriction: 18+ (partial nudity for the tassel twirling)
Workshop is for all cis and trans women, as well as non-binary people who are comfortable in a space that centres the experiences of women.
*Please note this workshop does not include your ticket to the performance
