    This was such a fun class. Before the class, Stephanie prepared mimosas for everyone. Stephanie is an excellent teacher, and I had such a great time learning new moves for a burlesque. I wish that this studio was closer to my house - I would love to take more classes there!

    I really loved the class. I had a lot of fun learning to move my body in new and sensual ways during the class. The routine definitely helped me bring out my more sensual side. I definitely would take this again if offered.

    This class was SO FUN!! I would recommend this to anyone - if you have a group of friends who want to do something different this is perfect! Stephanie is an awesome teacher and she makes this so much fun, and the dance easy to learn, and it’s just casual and entertaining. Even if you can’t dance, like me! We had so much fun that the other girls in the class - that we didn’t know beforehand - all stood outside and talked after and we are all doing the October class too. Do it! You won’t regret it!

    He was very nice, energetic and entertaining. The venue was really nice and the hosts were great. It was my first time seeing a medium and found it both fascinating and educational. The event description does say that not everyone is guaranteed a reading so I do not suggest you attend if you are not interested in being part of the experience even if you don’t get a reading. He offers individual readings if that is all you are interested in. He does get through about 30% of the room and is very attentive and involved in each one. If you are or ever have been curious about mediums, I think this is a great demo.

    My friend and I happened to be the only two that showed up for the class. We were nervous at first with the spotlight just on us two, but it turned out to be the best experience! Stephanie made us feel super comfortable and we essentially got a private burlesque class. Stephanie set the scene for the burlesque class, went over the dance step by step, gave us fun facts about burlesque throughout the time, and even let us record the full dance at the end. When we arrived she had champagne and beer ready to go and was very social and welcoming overall. It was super great experience! I would highly recommend for trying something new and getting out of your comfort zone!

    The class was technically good. The instruction used the time efficiently and the steps were easy, but not too simple.
    The class was EXACTLY one hour. It would have been nice to have a 1 hr 15 min class with a 10 min break in the middle with some time for socializing, or maybe having the teacher chatting/mingling with students.
