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.

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 alot 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 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!
