Winter Weather Burlesque

Dec 14th
2:30 AM - 4 AM
This class will be held LIVE online via Zoom — Zoom links are sent out 3 days prior and then again 1 hour prior to start time. The class will be recorded and available for a limited time shortly following the class. Registration deadline: 1 hour prior to class Pacific. No day-of cancellations.

Shimmy out of the holiday hustle and treat yourself or someone special to the gift of sexy in this special burlesque choreography workshop! Known for putting her students at ease and instigating a love for all things sparkly, Eva D’Luscious will guide you through her 4Ps of Striptease, as well as basic cheesecake movements and a simple, sexy choreography for home-play.

For this online class, participants may turn their camera off or leave it on to receive feedback. Bring a robe/coat, scarf/boa, mittens/gloves, and a bra/top to practice peeling a few layers. Pasties optional. Bottoms stay on in the choreo and there will be no nudity in the lesson. More costume ideas to be sent to attendees before class.

Our song is “Winter Weather” by Squirrel Nut Zippers. Listening to the music before class will make it easier to learn the dance. Registered students will receive a pre-recorded video with a performance of the choreography, a rehearsal view for following along, and a step-by-step breakdown.

High Priestess of Tease Eva D’Luscious has been bumping and grinding the patriarchy away since 2010. Her burlesque is about building community and connecting with your inner joy, sensuality and power, so that you can dance through life with confidence and resilience. Eva produces burlesque shows in the Pacific Northwest and northern California, including Whole Lotta Love: Valentine to Led Zeppelin, and was dubbed St. Bublicious by The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence for fundraising on their behalf.

Her Portland, OR, home is surrounded by a garden, and filled with her husband, teenage sons, an absurd amount of costumes and outdoor gear, and absolutely no patriarchal BS.
