Hot Pink Feathers Summer Session! And Burlesque n' Brass Saturday, June 6, 2009

Oh boy! I bet this isn't gonna be like the summer school I remember! The Hot Pink Feathers will be starting their Showgirl Academy summer classes next week. Lots of classes, lots of fun! A chance to stand out from the crowd and be a Feather. Which seems to be hella cool. ;-)

If you're wondering what the Feathers do, check 'em out at Cafe Van Kleef for their monthly show with Blue Bone Express on Saturday, June 6. The details are below the class information.

Hello Feather Fans!

This weekend you can catch Head Feather Kellita in both the West and East Bay, supporting fellow dancers Miss Indigo Blue of Seattle (whose AWESOME documentary film "A Wink and a Smile" is having it's SF premiere at the Red Vic) and our very own Feather Ms. Cherry Galette (for whom we are throwing a fundraiser to get her back in full dance condition following a nasty bump with an SUV!)

Click here for all the details:

Do you desire to dance through your summer with a colorful tribe of showgirls?

Do you long to take to the streets (and the nightclubs) and shake your thang and strut your stuff?

Me, too! Come join us and continue to hone your craft, increase your confidence and more fully access your delight. I'm thrilled to announce that Summer Session I class registration is now open!

Here are some video clips of our debut of "I Dream of Feathers" at Carnaval SF last weekend in case you missed it live!:

The site is updated with info for next session, including a NEW CLASS of BALLET FOR SHOWGIRLS taught by senior staff member and core Feather Kerri Myers!
