Fun and engaging teacher! She was clear and did a great job explaining everything. She was helpful and made my (beginner) dance experience enjoyable. Would recommend her for sure!

Though there was a dip in popularity of Burlesque in the mid 1900s, there has since been a resurgence of the performance format since the 1990s.
