What’s Included

Over 45 minutes, Jo will walk you through the basics of burlesque, helping you with all the core moves and how to put them altogether in various ways with the exclusive Burlexe track, ‘Star of the Show’.

I love making people’s dreams come true. I want all my students to learn how to love themselves – and I do this through the hallmarks of burlesque; movement, sensuality, glitz, glamour and a lot of laughter. So often in my experience, people have never been told that they’re attractive, sexy or worthwhile. I want everyone to feel comfortable and fabulous in their own skin and it starts by helping to build their self-confidence.

Burlesque is an art form that originated during the Victorian era and is a type of variety show that features both provocative and comedic performances. Click here to discover more. We’ve set up on demand classes to give you an introduction to this art form with the UK’s only British Burlesque Legend Jo King.

The online classes are accessible from anywhere in the world for you at home and can be bought as a whole or as one-off modules. They are ideal for beginners but also for anyone wanting to discover the art of moving in a sexy way and feeling good about their body. Jo teaches without music but will then show you how to put together all the different moves to make a routine to the Burlexe track, ’Star of the Show’.

We’re assuming you’re at home so you can do what you like! These modules provide the basis for burlesque but can also be used for striptease.

The classes are designed to be accessible for everyone.

They should be accessible via most computers, laptops and smartphones. Of course, if you have an older model, make sure your software is up to date.

You will be able to stop and start each clip in order to get the most out of it and practise your moves alongside Jo.

These classes are meant to be an introduction to the art form and so will give you a good understanding of how to start building a routine and what’s involved.

Of course, becoming a professional takes hours of work to hone your skills but we hope these classes will help you on your journey.

If becoming a professional is something you’d like to get into further once you’ve finished our course, Jo has provided a series of tips here to help: Find out more.
