Good Day, Beautiful Beings!

2020 was a year of shifts and changes for many of us, including Vaudezilla! Last year, due to the pandemic, we closed the longest running weekly burlesque show in Chicago, VAUDEZILLA! Burlesque Spectacular - as well as my beloved storefront, Vaudezilla Studios (open for nearly 10 years in Chicago!).

Thank you thank you thank you for the pleasure of serving thousands of provocative burlesque artists, courageous students, hilarious and joyful bachelorettes, audience members and clients over the years through our show and classes.

But, I'm not done yet!

In fact, this - along with the 2020 birth of my daughter - has given me an opportunity to go through a major renaissance! It has solidified in me the desire to uplift others through teaching and mentorship and given me a whole new appreciation of power of Burlesque (and naughty art) to change the world!

So, check out what I'm doing now in the links below.

And I'll see you in person again soon!

With Blessings of Courage, Creativity, and Connection,
Red Hot Annie

Becoming Burlesque Masterclass
For over 13 years I've helped artists Uncensor themselves so they can put themselves "out there" more courageously - onstage, online, and in person. And I want to help you cultivate Self Love, to commit to the kind of radical self acceptance and self care that will help you unload the burden of invisibility and start standing out!

Join the Becoming Burlesque community - where artists of all ages, sizes, and abilities are welcome and celebrated! This program is unlike anything you've ever done - and it works from the inside to cultivate deep inner confidence that will be just as beneficial in the bedroom or boardroom as it is on stage.



7 days to burlesque


7 Days to Burlesque
Strip tease is an act of vulnerability - regardless of whether you're doing it for an audience of 1 or 1,000!

Through my 7 Days to Burlesque series, you'll have access to (7) 20-minute courses intended to help you build confidence and trust in your body while practicing the provocative art of sensual dance. Each lesson puts you centerstage and works perfectly with any style of music you choose.

Discover your own voice, practice loving yourself and your body, and raise your overall command and presence - impactful skills for onstage performance that are just as powerful in the boardroom as they are in the bedroom.
