Burlesque for the Holidays with Eva D’Luscious of ShowGirl Temple!

December 6, 2020 @ 5:30 pm 7:30 pm PST

Eva D'Luscious

This class will be held online via Zoom — you’ll receive an email with access information prior to the event. While classes are LIVE in nature and by default not recorded, some educators have chosen to offer recordings of their classes to pre-registered attendees; please inquire for specifics of this event. Registration deadline: 10:00 a.m. PST on the day of class. No day-of cancellations.

Shimmy out of the holiday hustle and treat yourself or someone special to the gift of sexy in this saucy 2-hour burlesque choreography workshop.

Known for putting her students at ease and instigating a love for all things sparkly, Eva will guide you through her 3Ps of Striptease, basic principles of boa dance, and a simple, sexy choreography for home play.

Costume pieces: long coat/sweater/robe; long scarf/boa; mittens/gloves; bra/top you’ll remove; panties/bottoms that will stay on in the choreo. Pasties optional.

Please have all costume pieces for class — pulling from your closet or using stand-in items is totally fine! Wear a bodysuit or sports bra as a base layer. You may dance in bare feet or heels if they are stable and help you feel sexy, and double check that your dancing surface is safe for your chosen footwear.

Participants may leave their camera off or turn it on to receive feedback; only Eva will be recorded on video. Registered students will receive the class video of Eva and will have access to a pre-recorded video with a performance of the choreography, a rehearsal view for following along, and a step-by-step breakdown.

Eva D’Luscious is a Portland-based MC, Burlesque performer, producer and instructor. She is dedicated to helping womxn rule their lives and connect to their sensual power through burlesque dance, and welcomes beginners and experienced dancers to her classes.
