New York School of Burlesque
If you've ever been dazzled or inspired by photos of pinups and burlesque queens, this is the school for you!

Academy of Burlesque
The Seattle based Academy of Burlesque offers courses in basic through intermediate Burlesque Arts. The courses are fun and informative, providing students with rich experiential knowledge about Burlesque history and culture. The practical application of the strip- and the -tease have transformed students’ experience of their own bodies, and has launched some into semi professional performance. Courses are offered year- round, with summers off during the busy Burlesque
performance circuit.

Burlesque University
Burlesque University, better known as BU, is based in Washington, DC.  Founded by Headmistress Kitty Victorian, BU opened its proverbial doors in September 2006 and offers classes on many topics surrounding burlesque and other erotic arts. Focusing on body-positive, sex-positive, teachings all classes are open to every person regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, etc. What I’m saying folks is that if you want to learn the art of the tease, I’d love to teachit to you! It may even be a jumpstart to a new career!

History of Burlesque

Burlesque 411's mission is to serve the general public by bringing burlesque shows to a central location on the web that is easy to find and simple to use. It allows fans of burlesque, and soon to be fans, find shows based on city and by performers. By applying a national database of performers and producers, potential audience members can find a show in their area quickly and easily, and find shows in other cities when they are traveling. We aim to help performers reach more of the general public and producers promote their shows to to as many potential audience members as possible.
