How The Luscious Burlesque Course Began
The Luscious burlesque course began back in 2011. Little Lady Luscious (LLL) had returned from an adventure in New Zealand which began with a dashing naval officer and ended with her taking the only pair of heels she had in her backpack to a burlesque class. Where she fell in love with the wonderful world of burlesque. A place where you can be a sexy and sultry spy one day or a comedic clown the next.
On her return to the UK her sister’s maid of honour employed LLL to teach burlesque at her sister’s hen party. Ma Luscious was there, who had no clue what burlesque was, and like her daughter loved it too! From there LLL went on to teach friends, to friends of friends then finally launched the Luscious Burlesque Course.
LLL has created a fun and fabulous course where you can discover your burlesque alter ego. Be it sexy, comedic, cheeky or powerful. We’ve had graduates perform as unicorns, nuns, rugby players, queens and even in drag. In burlesque anything is possible.
Discover you alter ego through basic techniques like bumps and grinds, walks and poses, shimmies and the iconic tassel twirl. The course is over an 8 week period and by the end of the course you’ll be walking down the street with more confidence and style. You may even want to take part in the Luscious Burlesque Night where you get to unleash your burlesque alter ego on stage!
The classes are small but the student teacher attention is big with co-facilitator Trixi Tassels teaching the course alongside Little Lady Luscious. Absolute beginners are welcome and we now have the Advanced Course if you are looking to take your burlesque journey to the next level.
Team Luscious firmly believe burlesque classes are for everyone which is why our classes are LGBTQ+ friendly. Come along and join the luscious fun!
