Burlesque Workshop in Amsterdam for YOUR (hen) party!
Embrace your womanhood and have fun with your girlfriends!


Fun filled Burlesque workshop where you can learn to tease like Dita von Teese,
like a (Bettie Page) pin-up girl, and be as sexy as Marilyn Monroe.

Discover the Diva, Femme Fatale, Bad Girl or Comedy Queen in yourself. You'll learn how to develop your burlesque alter-ego. At the end, you and your group will be a bonafide bevy of burlesque starlettes by putting on your own little burlesque show for each other. But during this workshop you also will get to know your friends (and yourself) a little bit better, all via humor and theatrical games. The main person (bachelorette, birthday girl) will be put in the centre of attention in a fun way.

There is no nudity during this burlesque workshop (unless you want to: we do have pasties/tassles and professional glue etc. available). It's not just about striptease or only a choreography. The teacher who is also a drama teacher, burlesque starlet and comedienne, uses the burlesque theme for a series of fun practices. It's not about how to tease a man, but about celebrating your femininity and having fun with your girlfriends!
You could bring: showclothing (clothing that makes you feel sexy) or easy fitting clothing, We have large feathered fans, hats, gloves, lace umbrellas etc. for you to use (borrow).

minimum (worth of) 8 persons.

"Every burlesque workshop I start with telling women that in Burlesque every woman is beautiful. Every woman is considered a piece of art.
And it doesn't matter which size or age you are. And that moving your hips, walking proud, with an open chest is healthy. During the excercises we throw out all bodyshame. It is amazing what happens when I tell them that they can be shamelessly feminine.
They all become so free, so beautiful... It touches me deeply every time!
At the end of the workshop when we do compliment showers women often cry.
With opening the body they remember something very deep, that sometimes they never allowed during their lives. I love it!
I love all women.
Consider yourself as a piece of art.
And you are beautiful... "

A word from the management.



From 2008 onwards our team delivers a wonderful, excellent quality Burlesque workshop. It started with American and English teachers / performers. We have listened to the participants and now with the current teachers the workshop has evolved into the most fun in town. That is because of these ingredients:
TOP COACH: This teachers aren’t just a dancer who do the same programme every time, it’s the personal touch that counts. Besides burlesque performers both Nina and Deena are a professional theater makers and coach for all ages. Above all the coach makes real contact with the group and individuals. She has the gift to make people feel at ease and will adapt to the group in order to get the best atmosphere. That’s why you are in for a true unique experience. There is always laughter and sometimes even a tear after the bride to be gets the ‘Love Shower’ from her girlfriends. Alternatively our professional choreographer Raoulala can give a fun workshop including a boylesque act (with the help of 2 gals from the group ofcourse!)

TOP LOCATION: The workshop is at a real night club with your private waitress and cook. A great venue in central Amsterdam, Just one street from the Red Light District. Around corner of Dam square and walking distance from Central station. Very handy for all your other activities like restaurant, boat trip, bar, terrace or photo session. So no boring space at the edge of town but your private stage in historic Amsterdam! The finger food in the break are also plenty and worth their money. Think wrap with salad and falafel plus luxurious deep fried bites and wedges / French fries. There have been groups doing this workshop around 12 so they save on lunch budget.

TOP ATMOSPHERE: The fun already starts when yours truly welcomes you. After my introduction of the teacher I will leave and you will be with the ‘girls only’ in order to have the most of fun. But the teacher also has a message: “this workshop is not about exciting a man, it’s about YOUR empowerment to feel free and sexy as you are!”. We also have accessories for you to use: 12 large feathered fans (unique for our workshop!) PLUS 3 more suitcases full of hats, boas, gloves and masks. Not only nice to use in your performance but also great for the pictures you can make.

All the above makes the price of 35,- Euro per person (inclusive one Prosecco or other drink, finger food etc.).Groups above 12: the bride to be is for free!. More discounts for groups larger then 17 and 22.

Last but not least I want to thank all those workshop participants who have complimented the teacher and the crew. Often we say to each other that this is one of the best things we ever realized. And every time we put our passion into the workshop.
