And don't forget Red Hots Burlesque's School of Shimmy! Have you ever wanted to be on stage to to shimmy and shake with the rest of the burlesque dancers? Or perhaps you'd just like to learn something new and fun for your personal enrichment? Dottie Lux has the classes for you!

Coming up in the next month are a hair and make-up intensive (October 26), which will be perfect for preparing your costume for Halloween, and a finishing touches and rehearsal session (November 9) for those who are about ready to take their act to the stage.

Both classes will be at the same place as the Red Hots show, El Rio. If you have any questions, please visit the Red Hots site at, or email Dottie at!
