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.
