In 2012, four accomplished women from all over the globe met in a dance studio in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood. Some had danced their whole lives; some couldn’t even walk in heels.
Before you can say “pastie,” we were on stage at Greenwich Village’s Le Poisson Rouge, shaking and shimmying in front of hundreds of adoring fans as part of a burlesque troupe called The Pink Chardonnays.
In 2015, we were ready to spread our wings and launch our own company. We took the stage at the Triad Theater in November of that year and haven’t looked back. Since our debut, we’ve produced a dozen shows (and counting!) in NYC and around the country.
For some of us, those first moments on stage are still terrifying. But once managed, fear becomes inspiration. Conquer the stage and you conquer the world. Own an audience and you own your destiny.
We’ve gotten so much out of burlesque, and you can too! Sign up for one of our classes or buy tickets to our next show and see how burlesque can transform your life!
