Intensive Class Program
BurlyCon is thrilled to introduce the inaugural year of BurlyCon Intensives! “More time!” you said, “I could take hours of classes with the top burlesque performers in the world!” you told us. Well, we listened!
Intensive Programs for BurlyCon 2017:
- Ultimate Self Confidence! Total Tool Kit Intensive with World Famous *BOB*
- Flexibility Fitness Intensive (Intermediate Level) with Kristina Nekyia
- The Elements: Act Development Intensive with Ray Gunn
- Production Management Intensive with Baby Doe
These workshops are multi-hour, in-depth explorations of various topics with the expert instructors you love. Each intensive will only cost $15 and this fee is non-refundable. These classes will be limited in size allowing every student time with the instructor and the ability to really dig into the topic at hand. We suggest only taking two classes at most- these are long workshops and you don’t want to miss out on all the other exciting events at BurlyCon!
