“Hello My Little Ponies!!! I have two classes on the schedule at New York School of Burlesque!” When you get an e-mail like that, you listen, poodles. And when it turns out to be from downtown superstar and stripping expert World Famous *BOB*, you get on bended knee and learn it. In her own diva-licious descriptions, *BOB*’s burly-queue classes are:
“Tuesday, March 25th from 8 to 10 pm: ‘On Stage Glamour’. It is recommended that you bring your wig or lashes. Not there yet? That’s okay–come and learn from watching. Snacks, wisdom, & fun will be served! ”
“Tuesday, April 15th from 8 to 10 pm: ‘Ultimate Self-Confidence!’ This class is currently open only to women. (Anyone living as a woman 24/7 is welcome). This is a life-changing course that allows the participant to create a stockpile of ‘courage references’ that allow you take larger chances on a daily basis in your life on or off stage.”
Sold! Let’s all start learning how to put it all on so we can learn how to take it all off!
