Become a burlesque teacher

Run your own Burlesque classes, inspire your students and make a living from it!

Become a burlesque teacher, boost your students self-esteem whilst promoting the art of tease.

Whether you’re looking for a career change or to add some extra classes to your existing calendar whilst ladies feel more confident with their own body, becoming a burlesque teacher is the right move.

Designed for flexibility and fun, the BB program makes it easy to set your own schedule and teach as many (or as few) classes as you want.

Your training will be led by Helene Phillips – Belles Burlesque’s founder, teacher and former editor at the international Burlesque Bible magazine.

The online course (with the option to meet in person if local) is a mix of theory and practice.

  • You will learn all the burlesque moves you need to know to start teaching.
  • You will learn the pros and cons of all burlesque props out there
  • You will be given 3 full routines to get you started. Don’t forget that it takes 4 to 6 weeks to teach a full routine to newcomers so with 3, you are covered for a few classes a week for a few months.
  • You will get assessments to get you fully prepared.
