There are lots of shows with a Valentine's theme happening this week. Barbary Coast Burlesque, Le Boy, and the Hubba Hubba Revue all have love-themed shows happening. There are also classes from Kristina Nekyia (previous post) and the Red Hots Burlesque School of Shimmy (previous post) that are timed to provide excellent opportunities to learn about sensual movement, with or without a partner. I sense that love is in the air!
Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!
