Missy Fatale is a world-renowned, international burlesque performer, and swing dance Instructor, specializing in classic burlesque, fire-eating, snake-charming, and 1920’s Charleston. Missy travels the globe performing, and has dedicated four weekends to our beloved London town, in order to teach this long-awaited, and much requested course! Places are limited, and all studios are mirrored professional dance studios. The ‘Graduation Show’ (which is optional, and included in the price) will be confirmed following completion of the course, and will be at a London Cabaret venue, such as Proud Cabaret or Madame Jojo’s. Past students of the course have gone on to become award-winning burlesque artistes (Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas / World Burlesque Games in London) and some have gone back to their normal lives, with a hint of vixen in their eyes, and a new sense of confidence in their bodies, and in themselves.


Track 1

The Vintage Showgirl course

Sundays 1-3pm

4-week course, four 2-hour sessions over four weeks + performance (optional)

Course Description:

Embrace the diamonds, the feathers, and the high-waisted sequin knickers, and reveal your inner vintage starlet! The wild-abandon of the 1920’s, the era of Josephine Baker, Louise Brooks, prohibition and the advent of the ‘IT’ girl - If you’ve always wanted to be a Busby Berkeley showgirl, then this is what you’ve been waiting for!

We will cover 1930's showgirl jazz dance, chorus-line, 1920’s Charleston, troupe & solo performance, expression & characterisation, costuming, and entertaining your adoring crowd.


Track 2: The Burlesque Siren course

Sundays 2-4pm

4-week course, four 2-hour sessions over four weeks + performance (optional)

Course Description:

Dita Von Teese, the glamour of Marilyn Monroe, and more feathers and diamonds than you can shake a stick at! This course is dedicated to celebrating women, our bodies (all ages, shapes and sizes!) and our sexuality - which is something to be proud of! Whether you want to become a fully-fledged burlesque performer, increase your dancing repertoire, or simply learn how to feel fabulous and improve your confidence, this is the course for you.

We will cover 1950's bump n' grind, slow sensual exotica, basic body movement, costuming, history & icons, neo-burlesque (and boylesque if required!) the art of the tease, and of course how to perform burlesque on a stage.


Combine both courses for the ultimate showgirl experience, a full 12 hours! (£120)

No experience whatsoever is needed to take either course. All ages, shapes and persuasions welcome!
