Burlesque workshop with Wild Card Kitty

Burlesque workshop with Wild Card Kitty

Sat 17 Mar 2012 | 1.30pm-4.30pm | £25

With over twelve years performance experience, including nine years dancing as a vintage showgirl at club night Vegas!, burlesque performer Wild Card Kitty presents a fun, confidence-boosting class in the art of burlesque, with an emphasis on charm, charisma and comedy.

As well as an introductory history of the artform alongside the neo-Burlesque scene of today, the class will teach you the basics of peel and reveal (with gloves and boas) and how to tassel twirl (don’t worry, you don’t have to get naked!) Rather than being a performance class (there’ll be no public performance at the end of it), this is about boosting confidence and having fun alongside like-minded women.

Limited to just 12 spaces, everyone will get a fair amount of attention. Included in the price will be a glass of Cava (mmm – the champagne of Spain!), use of gloves, boas and tassels and a handout at the end recommending sources for further reading, learning and inspiration.

Strictly girls only, this class is suitable for all women over the age of 18.


Wild Card Kitty has performed across the UK and internationally at events ranging from The Coney Island Rockabilly Festival and Connect Festival to the Burlesque Hall of Fame Convention in Las Vegas, USA alongside such legendary performers as Roxi D’Lite (Reigning Queen of Burlesque 2010), Dirty Martini (Reigning Queen of Burlesque 2004), Angie Pontani (Reigning Queen of Burlesque 2008) and Anna Fur Laxis (1st Runner-Up Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend 2011). She has also won a coveted Golden Pastie Award at the New York Burlesque Festival (the Oscars of the Burlesque World) and taken performance workshops with World Famous *BOB*, Wild Cherry and the late Tura Satana.
