Valentine's Showgrrrl Workshop: Sensuality in Motion with Kristina Nekyia on Sunday, February 13

Kristina Nekyia will return from Hollywood to teach a class that will help you to find that showgrrrl within this Sunday, February 13, at Shoebox Studio in San Francisco!

Perfect as a unique Valentine's Day gift for that special someone for whom you've bought chocolates or flowers for the, oh, past six years. It's even a perfect gift for yourself! In this two hour class, you'll learn some of the basic moves of burlesque and belly dance to develop a sensual and real routine that will let you discover your inner showgrrrl!

Before she moved to Los Angeles, many of you may remember seeing Ms. Nekyia perform on Bay Area stages with her troupe, The Nekyia. Since then, she finished as Reigning Queen of Burlesque First Runner-Up at last year's Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend, and she's been working on her "Dream of Nekyia" burlesque act, which has been over a year-and-a-half in the making. For more about what she's been up to, please visit her website at

Shoebox Studio is located at 864 Folsom Street (map). The class will run from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, and it will cost $40.00. You may register online through the link below. Be sure to click on the "Workshop/Events" tab to see and sign up for this event!
