No – its not naughty!

This series of workshops will build confidence and skills whilst exploring your inner – and outer feminine energies.

Sian, the owner and Founder of ‘Tease Not Sleaze’ has structured these workshops for the very beginner, for every size, shape and age to ensure a safe, fun atmosphere.

Traditionally, burlesque has been a type of variety show that is both provocative and comedic. It features a female chorus and solo dances, plus bawdy, slapstick skits and songs. And yes, it may feature striptease acts, but not necessarily- and certainly no nakedness! This is about the art of teasing, provocation and pure feminine playfulness.

Eight Week Course $100 Non Members and Stanthorpe Little Theatre Members – $80 or $15 per class.
