Learn from your Living Legends of Burlesque! Every year BurlyCon sponsors special classes at your Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender, and 2017 is no exception! The BHoF Finishing School presents classes with burlesque Living Legends from the mid-twentieth century. Classes are held during the Burlesque Hall of Fame Exotic World Weekend in Las Vegas, and focus on lifestyle, skills, and history. These classes are a fantastic and opportunity to receive information passed on directly from one of our most finite resources: the performers of yesteryear.

Thursday: Community Classes

Come together with members of the burlesque community from around the world for panel and lecture classes about specific parts of our sparkly history, from pasties to the BHoF Museum, and even our Legends Roundtable.

Friday/Saturday Legends Classes:

Burlesque Classes taught by the Legends of Yesteryear at the Burlesque Hall of Fame! Burlesque Legends will inspire you! They may also challenge you, thrill you, or even shock you, but they will never bore you. Come with an open-mind for perspectives you may not have expected to encounter, as well as for raw, unfiltered history you simply cannot get anywhere else.
