Workshops

The Shimmy Shake Berlin Burlesque School hosts a wide variety of exciting burlesque classes. Each class is focused on a different style or skill, to cover all facets of burlesque performance. After each term students have the opportunity to perform the choreography they learned at our graduation event, the Shimmy Shake Show. Whether you are interested in classic Bump and Grind, Costuming, Neo, Characterisation, Movement, Striptease or Styling, with our ever-changing roster and exciting list of guest teachers we have something for everyone. The teachers of the school are also able to offer special private classes for those wanting to hone existing skills or that prefer to start learning in a private environment.

*Our classes are suited to all levels of fitness and experience.
SHIMMY SHAKE CLASSES
SHIMMY SHAKE – BERLIN BURLESQUE SCHOOL – Bringing the Ba Da Boom to Berlin!

We’re right back with regular classes! All students will have the opportunity to perform at the next Shimmy Shake Show! Every Tuesday we have shimmy fun for you! Our drop-in classes will continue with a regular teacher rotation, each teacher will develop a short routine which you can perform at our show if you choose to.

”In the interest of public health and safety during the Covid 19 pandemic we are currently not offering any classes in studios.
During this period we will have online classes for you via the Zoom program so you can keep shimmy shaking during this difficult time.”

EVERY TUESDAY ** LEVEL 1**
18.30 – 19.30 with Lolita Va Voom
In this workshop you will learn the basics of burlesque – from dancing to styling. Together we develop various movements such as bump and grind, shimmy shaking and the correct pose, as well as a positive body feeling and self-confidence. The ideal introduction to the art of burlesque! During these classes we will develop a series of choreographies.
Price: 15€

EVERY SATURDAY **4.4**
14.00 – 15.30 with La Viola Vixen
In this weekly intensive class we will do a warm up flow, learn the basics of burlesque dance and movement and develop a fun burlesque routine. Theme and teacher will change each week! Details will be posted weekly in the event page.

Payment options:
We have set prices for our online classes as a guide.
Contributions to our teachers are very needed so if you can afford more, your support would be so helpful.
We also understand that there is a lot of financial difficulty for other people like us, artists, freelancers, immigrants, creatives, queers, womxn and parents right now.
For that reason we are accepting donation payment and will offer some free places to those in need of a shimmy and are experiencing hardship.
Please email us to request a free or donation pay place in any class.
We hope that the joy of a little burlesque, makeup, striptease and shimmies in a time like this can bring some much needed joy to everyone who needs it.

Make sure you have some space, a yoga mat & mirror if possible, water and anything else listed in the class description. We really encourage you to dress up for class to help keep our burlesque hearts happy when we aren’t able to socialise with other beauties.
This is totally up to you though of course 😉

Stay safe shimmy shakers! We are looking forward to seeing you all having fun from home!
