The Academy of Burlesque, in Seattle, is the longest running in the entire country and was founded by a charming woman named Indigo Blue - who by the way, has performed with Dita Von Teese ... she's a big deal you know! She met me this morning along with a crew of her performers to teach me what this sexy and seductive art form is all about.
This form of entertainment has been around forever and is now being used as a great way to get in shape and gain some confidence ... everybody needs more of that don't they?!

I bet your wondering why there's a man in the pic aren't you? Well, burlesque isn't just for the girlies.... it's also for the men out there. His name is 'Waxie Moon' and he's a performer and instructor with the Academy ... and he rocks! The Academy of Burlesque offers "Boy-lesque" classes and workshops too - get in touch with your feminine side!
The Academy of Burlesque is always accepting new performers of all ages and body types - YOU should take a class! Here's the 411 on how to do it:
- They offer classes for ALL bodies, ALL sizes, and ANYONE that wants to try. From folks in the process of fighting breast cancer to those in the midst of changing genders, they welcome everyone with open arms.
Make it a great ... and confident....day!!
