About Studio L’amour
Studio L’amour opened officially in June of 2008 in response to the overwhelming call for Michelle L’amour to open her own burlesque instruction school. She had been teaching The L’amour Method for many years across the globe (at festivals, workshops, and shows) and took the leap to open her own brick and mortar facility.
She opened the space as an invitingly sexy home for her students…a place where sensuality is explored through dance, confidence and social experiences.
Located in Chicago’s West Loop, Studio L’amour stands as a welcoming oasis for women of all walks of life.

Lady Ginger, “The Baroness of Bump,” is a proud member of Michelle L’amour’s internationally acclaimed Burlesque troupe, The Chicago Starlets (World’s Best Burlesque Troupe 2010, The Burlesque Hall of Fame). She wandered into one of Michelle L’amour’s Burlesque classes 5 years ago, and was hooked within 10 minutes. She has been a full company member for approximately 4 years. Lady Ginger has not only performed on numerous stages in the City of Chicago (Music Box Theatre, Lakeshore Theatre, The Metro, Hydrate, Mayne Stage, Subterranean, Bottom Lounge), but throughout the United States as well (Ohio, Texas, New Orleans, Las Vegas, San Francisco, New York, etc.), and internationally (Toronto).
