One Hot SEXY Summer!

For July, we will have an abbreviated schedule and will only be offering classes on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We have Burlesque Basics and Teasin’ & Pleasin’ on both nights. The props for Teasin’ & Pleasin’ will be parasols, sarongs and bikini tops. How perfectly summery! We are also offering 2 Candlelight Burlesque Workshops: July 8 and July 29th. This will be a class done completely in candlelight and will focus on the sensuality of burlesque. You can register for all of these classes now! Classes begin the week of July 7th.

And, be sure to join us as a new class of students perform for the FIRST TIME on June 28th! You can see ‘Show Us Your Newbies‘ AND ‘The Chicago Starlet Reunion Show‘ all in one night at Joe’s Bar on Weed St!

STUDENTSHOWPOSTER-2015-SMALLFirst – 7pm: “Show Us Your Newbies” – the annual Studio L’amour Summer Striptease Student Showcase, featuring debut performances from a bevy of beauties taking it off on stage for the first time. Come see Lacie Roulet, Porcelain Pistol, Rosalina Riot, Ellie Flux, Penny Rose, Juliette Coquette, Crimson Auberginer and Viola D’Vine and be able to say “I knew ’em when…” [Tickets]

Next – 9pm: The “Chicago Starlet Reunion Show” featuring seven former Starlets in a triumphant return to the burlesque stage. If you have yearned for the days of Starlet yesteryear, come see Vivian Velvet, Dominique Trixx, Stella LaRocque, Ginny Fizz, CherokeeRose, Ivy Fabulous, Dorian Ames, and Fanny Tastic Plus a special performance by the leader of the pack, Michelle L’amour. [Tickets]

It’s a night of shiny and new versus the seasoned pros. And you’ll love them all!

You can purchase tickets for the individual shows or attend them both and save!

Hip Hip Hooray!

The June schedule is now available for registration. All classes start the week of June 8th. The new class in the mix is Hip Hip Hooray and it’s all about HIPS! We’ll be twisting and shaking and grinding and figure 8-ing!

There is also a chance to perform in the upcoming student show on June 28th. If you are registered for the Teasin’ & Pleasin’ class, you are eligible to perform in the student showcase. Emails will be sent to all students in the class after the first week to explain more about requirements and show details. If you meet the requirements of rehearsal, you respond, and we take the first 15 ladies to respond. It’s that easy! You would perform the dance that we learn in the class. For June, the props will be waist cinchers and panel skirts. Performance is OPTIONAL.

And if you’re new to burlesque, the Basic class is perfect for you.

Hope to see you in June for class or even a bachelorette party!
