New to Burlesque?

- Keen to try something new but not sure where to start?

Let us help you decide!

At Maison Burlesque our varied range of burlesque and vintage dance classes are open to all ages, shapes and sizes from all walks of life!

We keep our class sizes small (maximum 15 students in a class) to ensure a fun, personalised learning experience from skilled teachers in a supportive community atmosphere. Many of our 8 week courses also offer (completely optional) opportunities to perform with your group at our end of term showcase.
