Beginners! Read this!

Our beginners courses are ideal for those who have never tried burlesque before as well as those who have already been on one of our courses, each course is slightly different and a great opportunity to make new friends and have fun!

Our beginners course focuses on some of the basic moves which include posing and peeling, making an entrance, shimmying and shaking. Confidence-building techniques together with deportment and devising characters are also part of the course.

This women’s only class is aimed at beginners and the six weekly one hour sessions are a lot of fun and great bonding sessions for those new to the area, too! There will be no nudity involved.

The course runs over six weeks and costs £40 – places must be paid for in advance at bluestockinglounge.bigcartel.com Each class is an hour long. This is not a ‘ticketed’ course, your paypal receipt acts as your ticket and you will be required to bring this with you on your first lesson.

Places are very limited to 15 – please note that once paid, places cannot be refunded or transferred.

Ready to Get Your Act Together? Advance burlesque and cabaret-ers read this!

So you’ve been on a burlesque course – you may have been on a few – and your head is loaded with ideas, you just need the proverbial kick up the posterior to help you put all this together to make an act! You might also be stuck in a rut with style or suffering from ‘burlesque block’ on an act you’ve been working on for ages and just need that special magic to pop the pieces in place. If this is you, then this course is for you…

Taking elements from Bluestocking’s advance course, you will learn to map out your acts, tell a cohesive stage story, refine your ideas and ‘performing for an audience’ skills. We’ll even arm you with a toolbox of moves so you have plenty of resources to create your act. You will need to bring with you ideas for your act, music ideas (we’ll be jumping right in and playing with your music and ideas on the first lesson!), your enthusiasm, excitement and dedication! Plus a desire to put together an act to perform.

The course usually runs over three weeks and costs £20 – places must be paid for in advance at bluestockinglounge.bigcartel.com Each class is an hour long. This is not a ‘ticketed’ course, your paypal receipt acts as your ticket and you will be required to bring this with you on your first lesson.

Places are very limited to 15 – please note that once paid, places cannot be refunded or transferred.
