For the 12th blockbuster year, the Burlesque Hall of Fame Finishing School offers rare, hands-on workshops with “Living Legends” of the art of Burlesque. Each of these instructors has her or his own unique perspective on the art, and shares directly from her or his own experience. Classes are held during the Burlesque Hall of Fame Exotic World Weekend in Las Vegas and focus on lifestyle, skills, and history. These classes are a fantastic opportunity to receive information passed on directly from one of our most finite resources: the performers of yesteryear. All Classes are taught in conjunction with the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender June 7 & 8, 2019, and held in Esplanade J at the Orleans Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, NV.
