Teaching Introductory Burlesque

Beginning burlesque classes, whatever the name or format, are the most popular and versatile class or course in any teacher’s curriculum, and therefore the most profitable. That initial experience that a student has with you can either make them an instant disciple or turn them off of burlesque forever. This class tackles the common and tricky questions that arise from teaching people with no burlesque experience. What essentials are truly essential? How do you deal with a mix of different (sometimes difficult) personality types in one class? What about anxiety? Please note: this class assumes you already have the basic performance skills necessary to teach an introductory class.
