Want to Teach at BurlyCon? Check Out This List of Class Requests


Class applications are open and now is the time when burlesque educators from around the globe submit their classes to be considered to present at BurlyCon. The applications and talent is overwhelming and while we’d love to include everyone, there just isn’t enough hours in a day to fit every class in.

So if you’re sitting there thinking about what to teach this year have we got news for you! We compiled a list of classes that were requested from BurlyCon 2018! AND for 2019 ONLY we’re including a circus track! As Under the Big Top is our 2019 theme we’re looking to include classes that would help a performer run away and join the circus!

If something sparks that perfect idea for what you should teach head over to the application page and fill out the form by March 31st.
