Creative classic strip tease intensive.

Learn Imogen’s seven Cs of classic striptease- a sure way to make a knockout routine.
It can be difficult making classic fun and creative, but it’s not reinventing the wheel.

Visit different gown styles and different tips and tricks for their removal; learn five ways to remove a glove; how to remove a corset without becoming entangled in your corset strings and shoe… how to take them off elegantly… stockings… not only ways of removing them but ways to work ‘em.
Once you have your vocabulary of moves, it comes down to clever choreography and charm.

  • Please bring the following:
  • Notebook and pen
  • Wear clothes you can move in.
  • A pair of socks
  • Stage shoes or heels you feel comfortable in.
  • Gloves and a dress of your choosing- one that you either wear, or would like to wear onstage.
  • A corset.
  • A pair of stockings and suspenders.
