Burlesque Sunday in Rotterdam – every first Sunday
When I started my burlesque journey in 2008 there was not yet much information on how to create a burlesque act, such as what is suitable and what is not.After visiting local burlesque shows (some of which had international performers) and reviewing every available video on the internet, I still thirsted to know more.In 2011 I decided to visit the biggest burlesque event on Earth – “Burlesque Hall of Fame” – and it was an amazing educational experience. I was able to get plenty of new information by meeting a lot of talented international performers and attending masterclasses with the pioneers of burlesque – Marinka, Joan Arline, and Tiffanie Carter.Throughout all those years, I was still looking for my place in burlesque. Sometimes I would lose my way, trying out styles that didn’t suit me, but usually finding my path again quickly.I was lucky enough to be able to take some burlesque classes from the talented Michelle L’amour, Russel Brunner and Bonnie Fox. I have also drawn a great deal of inspiration from belly dance, as it is a very feminine art. My belly dance teachers taught me not only dancing techniques, but also how to flirt on stage and enjoy every moment of being in a feminine body. Thank you Fifi Abdou, Sadie Marquardt and my friend Nadya for helping me on my journey.These days, I’m beginning to realize that I’ve reached a point where I’m now able to share my knowledge with other women who would like to learn the amazing art of classic burlesque.Every first Sunday of the month I now organize “Burlersque Sunday in Rotterdam.”During these events, burlesque lovers come together to share knowledge and experiences. Each event has two masterclasses and every month has a different theme. Once every three months there is a guest teacher. It’s also possible to book a 1 hour private class/coaching (maximum 2 persons).Below an overview of the events.If you wish to participate in one of the classes send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a note including the masterclass name and date.
If you’ve enjoyed this post, I’d be very grateful if you’d help it spread by emailing it to a friend or sharing it on social media. Thank you!
