Debuting on stage, relishing every moment, has truly been one of the very best moments of my life, of being fully woman. I had no idea the creativity I’d been repressing!
I recommend this class to every woman of every age to really get in touch with the sexy core that is each one of us. Go for it! You’ll be so very glad you did.

Burlesque has helped me realize who I am as a woman. It has helped me become stronger, more confident, and has given me a new lease on life.
Betty makes the moves accessible to anyone, regardless of experience or background. It could be your first time in a dance studio, or you could be a seasoned performer. The classes are molded to fit each and every performer.
Growing up, I was made to believe that pretty girls were no bigger than a size two. Burlesque has helped me realize that as long as I feel good, to hell with what anyone else thinks.

We, as grown ups, forget to play. Burlesque is dress up, make up, silly dancing, sexy dancing, and all out playing, in a safe, non-judgy environment.
Just do it. You’ll never regret it. You might regret the glitter that will never leave your home, clothing, pets, and life but… do it anyway!
