Burlesque

 
 

Burlesque totally changed my life.  I’m not kidding. My thoughts about my body, aging, sexuality, art, activism, feminism, it has all been transformed by burlesque. More than a decade has passed since I started performing burlesque and I am still intrigued by this art form. 

Stripping in an artful, sexy, funny, dirty, clumsy, beautiful, disturbing, weird and wonderful way is one of my VERY favourite things to do. Teaching other people how to do it is a close second!

Catch me on the stage or jump down the rabbit hole and join one of my classes.

Learn to Love your Jiggly Bitts class is not just for performers. The “audience” is us, looking at ourselves and passing judgment or celebration, every day - and Rosie taught me to reinforce the message: “this skin that I’m about to reveal? You, audience, are invited to revel in the amazing feminine power that is me!” That was one of my favourite parts of working with Rosie. 
The other favourite part was the bonds forged with other amazing babes who were going through a transformative process and bearing witness to their growth and empowerment.

An excellent introduction to the art of burlesque, and intermediate level. Rosie allows her students to explore their personal vulnerability and helps them find the beauty and sensuality of their own body. Gives insight to improve their personal view of their body. Intermediate students are challenged to push their own boundaries to bring their performances to higher levels  As one of her male students she gave me tools I still use today to improve my performance and enhance my relationships off stage
