And if you like what you see, why not enroll yourself (or a friend!) in one of Bombshell Betty's Burlesquercise classes? Her "Intro to Burlesquercise Mini-Session" begins on Wednesday, January 19. It's $75.00 for the three class mini-session, and all the classes will be held at Bombshell Betty's studios in San Francisco.

There will also be Burlesque Intensive I and II classes starting in February. Confused about which of the three to take? Betty has put together a guide to help you choose as well as brief class descriptions of all three below. And if you know which class you want to take, follow the links to register!


- Are you not sure you will like Burlesquercise, and you just want to try it out and maybe perform a group number? Try the Intro series!

- If you want to learn all the basics you need to know to start performing burlesque (solos AND group numbers), then try the Intensive I.

- If you already have experience performing burlesque or have already taken the Intensive I and want to take your performance to the next level, take the Intensive II!

- If you have already taken any of the Burlesquercise series, but you would like to repeat the series because sometimes it is a LOT of information to take in, and the repitition will help you... go for it! We have a lot of people who take a series more than once to make sure they really get it all down. :)
