Bawdy Shop Burlesque Student Testimonials

Not sure if you're ready to get Bawdy? These are just a few of our student testimonials. And check out the Bmore Art review of our Bawdy Building burlesque class series! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, and I was like – okay, if I don't do this NOW, then when? And this class was such a welcome distraction and positive experience with my body that was completely counter to what I was experiencing in doctor's offices and somewhat in my personal life ("Oh you're sick? Oh I'm so sorry..") at the same time. I achieved my goal of increased self-confidence and body acceptance, while meeting some really rad people. Thank you for doing what you do!

The series was just what I hoped for, as truly great burlesque performers offered techniques and insight into what makes a memorable burlesque character and act.

--London St. Juniper

Every instructor was intelligent, fun, prepared, and encouraging. I couldn’t have asked for better! I felt AHHHHmazing!!!! 

--Ginger Lucy

I LOVED performing so much! I felt very freed, empowered, excited and good on stage. I definitely will not forget it and am still reveling in it now. Overall experience was incredible -- wish it continued longer!!


With so many changes happening in my personal life, I was completely having a mental breakdown with the idea of performing.  Honestly, it ended up being one of the best things I've ever done in my life.  Everyone was so supportive, kind and respectful of each other that it really made it impossible for me to feel unworthy of the challenge.  I loved every second of performing and it made me feel like everything (my body, my mind, my ideas) are beautiful.

Empowering! Kind! Exciting! Engaging! So, so fun! I loved getting to learn from folks who are clearly very skilled at what they do.  I appreciated how hands-on and practical the classes were.  I loved it so much!  It was such an exciting and empowering process to learn so much then put it all together in a performance.

--Eddie Pus-Complex


I LOVED LOVED LOVED being a kitten. I felt beautiful and when people from the audience complimented me, I agreed with them and felt it too. It's been years since I've felt sexy. [My daughter] knows her mama's hot, not afraid to try something completely new and out completely out of my comfort zone. That's a gift that would not have been possible with The Bawdy Positive Burlesque Class.  

--Velvet Whip

There is a creative fire in me that I haven't felt in a long time. I'm excited to see what we all do next! I had a freakin' blast, too! The whole thing: the camaraderie, the creativity, sharing the nerves, frustration, growth and laughs.

--Harmony Squeezebox

I was totally blown away by the knowledge and inspiration that each of the teachers offered. I had no idea that these classes would not only apply to burlesque but to life in general.  Thank you.

This experience has shown just how burlesque is SO MUCH ELSE! Through this performance platform, we not only get to be freely expressive and artistic, but also experience this addictive environment of encouragement, camaraderie, support, and pride that we all shared in each other! So glad we all got to share this experience together!

--Fiera Foxx

It was so beautiful and inspiring to see everyone do their acts so amazingly! It was so much fun and such a great show.

--Boozy D’esserts

I am super grateful to everyone for the remarkable experience of this class and performance. Such generosity, intelligence, hope, creativity, acceptance. I'm just busting with pride for everyone, we really did it!

--Beatrix Inferno

I wanted to let you know what an amazing experience this has been for me.  I wanted to do something totally outside the box and shake things up. I really needed a reboot!  And OMG did I get one! The positive energy you exude is intoxicating and addicting. This was an amazing experience.
