We currently offer two types of burlesque learning experiences, performance workshops and classes. We also offer performance workshops for tap dance as well.

Our Performance Workshops

Our performance workshops are divided into two sessions. In session one students spend class times learning choreographed dances. In session two we continue into our rehearsal time, perfecting dances to be stage ready. Upon completion of the two sessions, students are given the opportunity to perform in a Velvet Kittens of Le Cabaret Burlesque variety show. Students who attend session one are not required to continue to session two. Students who complete both sessions are not required to perform. This is only an opportunity we offer.

Weekly Classes

Our weekly classes are taught outside of the performance workshops. These classes focus on learning dance, and include warm-up/stretching, toning, and learning a dance combination.
