What do I love about the teachers at All That Glitters Burlesque Academy?!? They love women and totally celebrate everything fun and sexy about being a lady….

We attended a stripping technique class taught by Jo “Boobs” Weldon there yesterday, and it was just wonderful! Intimate setting in a cozy atmosphere, and gracious hostesses. Not to mention wonderful pointers by Miss Weldon herself. Highly recommended.

I highly recommend going here for learning burlesque. The instructors have many years of experience, and amazing credentials, and show you everything from make up, hair, costume, and how to build a routine! A real confidence builder!

The teachers are so professional and knowledgeable, yet they are able to create such a supportive and welcoming atmosphere that builds such camaraderie among teachers and fellow students. They have such a full package approach that focuses on classic burlesque moves, costuming, and performance. All of which is great preparation for a wonderful introduction into the burlesque community. Best of all, the class was great work and lots of fun!

I love dance. I’ve always wanted to perform and had no clue how to go about it… until one day at the analog I seen these flyers for classes. I am so glad that I took both a fan dance and burlesque 101 with these beautiful ladies…They are so much fun and talented. Thank you.

I have grown so much as a dancer and person due to this lovely studio! I’m super excited to have a home away from home to go to weekly classes and meet more burlesque performers.
