Tropical TEASE: A Transformative Burlesque Retreat

Thundering Grace

October 11, 2013 - October 16, 2013

Have you ever dreamed of becoming a Burlesque dancer? Is your inner vixen hiding out under negative self-beliefs or shyness? Unleash your feminine power and discover the transformative art of Burlesque with Thundering Grace! Tropical TEASE is a retreat specially designed for beginner performers and in particular for those that think they are too old, too fat, too shy or too ________ to try Burlesque.


What is Burlesque?


Burlesque is a glittery, glamorous, and playful performance art. The magic of Burlesque is not only in its ability to dazzle and amuse, but also in its capacity to heal and revolutionize. Whether you're an absolute beginner or have some experience under your (garter) belt, this retreat will be a safe and supportive environment to build new skills, increase confidence, and meet new friends in a rejuvenating retreat setting.


During the retreat, you’ll participate in intensive and empowering workshops such as Basic Burlesque Choreography, Dynamic Performance Design, and Thundering Grace’s Seven Fold Path of Sass-Mastery. We will dance, we will discuss, we will shimmy, shake and play. Most of all, we will grow our courage muscles and leave with a greater sense of our beauty and fabulousness!


Tropical TEASE will conclude with a public performance recital on our final evening. All activities will be voluntary and you will be encouraged to partake to your comfort level. You will also have free time to lounge by the pool or design your own burlesque performance with bonus coaching sessions from Thundering Grace. This retreat is for women and men who wish to explore the art of tease through a “feminine” gender expression. Participants of all sexual orientations, sexes, genders, ethnicities, ages, abilities, and body shapes and sizes are welcome!


Optional Activities (additional fees apply):


Jungle Burlesque Photoshoot (go home with some great photos!)
