Glove Peel & Tease Taster Class
Gloves… without these items, our hands are just plain, boring old hands! We see our hands everyday, but the minute you put a glove on and peel it off slowly on stage, something magical happens… Our hands are transformed into objects of desire; the crowd holds their breath as you peel off the glove and then gasps and whoops when the flesh is revealed. Who knew a glove could do so much for a plain old hand? (text from bluestockingmagazine.com). Learn this fabulous tease and take a seductive little routine home.
Time: 5-6:30 Saturday 13th February
Place : Hobart Dance Academy, 3 Federal St, N Hobart

In 2017 she won the Tasmanian section of Burlesque Idol and represented Tasmania in the Grand Final in Sydney, where the performance attire she designed and made, won a trophy for best costume. She likes to experiment with other art forms including drag and clowning, and incorporates these elements into her burlesque to create unique and sometimes confronting performances.
