VAUDEZILLA! Online Burlesque Classes


VIRTUAL BURLESQUE CLASSES
We are excited to announce that all of our classes and workshops will be online for the duration of Chicago's "Shelter-In-Place." You'll receive a Zoom link after you register.

PLEASE NOTE: When we are able to resume normal studio activities, we will shift any remaining online classes to our studio - however we will still have the online classes available (recorded from the studio). That way, if you're still hesitant to go out or are taking the classes from out of town, you can still participate.

We are so lucky to live in a time where distance can feel so close. May we continue to connect with others and find ways to create innovative and uplifting art. May we be kind, grateful, and full of joy! Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this new class and workshop format.

LEARN (AND PERFORM) BURLESQUE & BELLYDANCE
Burlesque and bellydance are for everybody who has a body - at its heart, classes at VAUDEZILLA! Burlesque are a celebration of diversity and what makes each body’s story special. Our classes are for people who:

- want a more daring way to practice self-care - by cultivating time to learn and practice new skills
- want an effortless way to exercise and tune into their body
- want an excuse to buy new lingerie ;)
- want to simply “BE” with themselves - to discover what they can create for no other reason than it feels good!

You are worthy of joy! And part of what makes our classes so special is at the end of each 8-week session, there's a very special Student Spectacular, where each class shows what they learned!

    CHICAGO BURLESQUE CLASSES: DROP-INS
    PLEASE NOTE: DROP-INS ARE ONLY AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST THREE WEEKS OF THE SESSION

    chicago burlesque classes
    chicago burlesque classes
    chicago burlesque classes
    chicago burlesque classes


    Drop-in policy: We welcome drop-ins for all of our eight-week classes. Some of our classes are very popular and tend to fill up to capacity. When that happens, we have to prioritize students who commit to taking the entire session of classes, and as such, we cannot guarantee that there will be space in the class for drop-ins. Even drop-in students who purchased their drop-ins in advance may be removed from their scheduled drop-in date(s) if the class ends up at capacity by the time those dates come around. Any drop-in student who has to be removed due to a class being at capacity will, of course, have their registration fees credited to their MindBody account for use on subsequent class/workshop purchases. We will make every effort to accommodate as many people as we can, as well as notifying students enough in advance if a class has reached capacity and their drop-in has to be canceled.

    Drop-ins are best used during the first 3 weeks of class.

    Intro to Burlesque: Punklesque
    Whether you've long desired to take to the stage, liven things up in your love life, or simply get cute in some spicy lingerie, this introductory level burlesque workshop series focused on punk rock style and culture can accomplish all three — all the while, you’ll look and feel like a badass! Vaudezilla's Greta-X will teach you fundamental stage terms and helps you get comfortable expressing yourself through dancing and using your body along to punk rock classic tunes. In this class, you'll be encouraged to recognize music counts and remember choreography from week to week to form a fully choreographed act to a song. Each class starts with a short warm-up stretch with the largest portion of each class spent learning burlesque within the context of short choreographed dances. No dance or theatre background is necessary.

    All levels and genders welcome.

    Every body welcome.

    A Midwest native who has called Chicago home for a decade, Greta-X is a burlesque and visual artist who collaborates with other Chicago performers to create solo and group acts that are powerful, whimsical, and visually unique. Greta’s aesthetic is inspired by '70s and '80s glam and androgynous musical icons, and she’s enthralled by any performance with rock and roll undertones. She has delighted private parties and varied audiences throughout the city, but her primary home is with Chicago’s own Vaudezilla Burlesque Spectacular!, where she has performed as a part of the ensemble every Saturday night at Stage 773 for the past two years. When not performing, Greta lends her skills in a variety of other areas — teaching classes, working stage crew, and photographing weekly shows. Outside of burlesque, Greta is a portrait and concert photographer and assistant curator at the Museum of Contemporary Photography. With a little flex and a lotta sex, it’s Greta-X!

    Intro to Burlesque: Punklesque
    Whether you've long desired to take to the stage, liven things up in your love life, or simply get cute in some spicy lingerie, this introductory level burlesque workshop series focused on punk rock style and culture can accomplish all three — all the while, you’ll look and feel like a badass! Vaudezilla's Greta-X will teach you fundamental stage terms and helps you get comfortable expressing yourself through dancing and using your body along to punk rock classic tunes. In this class, you'll be encouraged to recognize music counts and remember choreography from week to week to form a fully choreographed act to a song. Each class starts with a short warm-up stretch with the largest portion of each class spent learning burlesque within the context of short choreographed dances. No dance or theatre background is necessary.

    All levels and genders welcome.

    A Midwest native who has called Chicago home for a decade, Greta-X is a burlesque and visual artist who collaborates with other Chicago performers to create solo and group acts that are powerful, whimsical, and visually unique. Greta’s aesthetic is inspired by '70s and '80s glam and androgynous musical icons, and she’s enthralled by any performance with rock and roll undertones. She has delighted private parties and varied audiences throughout the city, but her primary home is with Chicago’s own Vaudezilla Burlesque Spectacular!, where she has performed as a part of the ensemble every Saturday night at Stage 773 for the past two years. When not performing, Greta lends her skills in a variety of other areas — teaching classes, working stage crew, and photographing weekly shows. Outside of burlesque, Greta is a portrait and concert photographer and assistant curator at the Museum of Contemporary Photography. With a little flex and a lotta sex, it’s Greta-X!
