The Burlesque Series are a revolving selection of six-week courses, each exploring a different specialist aspect of burlesque. Throughout the year, the series explore a range of themes, starting with classic (the foundations of the vintage striptease style) and moving on to cover more specific and targeted themes and skills. Keep up to date by joining the Lady Velvet Cabaret mailing list and find out which theme will be explored next in the series!

Together with Wild Kat Photography, Lady Velvet Cabaret offer new and established pinup models the chance to collaborate with Sugar du Joure in our one-day vintage pinup workshops! Workshops are friendly include tips and tricks from Sugar on your hair, make up, costuming, styling and posing – Sugar will also coach you through your own pinup shoot with Wild Kat. The results are stunning and can be used to build up your pinup portfolio, as head shots, or just for fun! Find out more at the Lady Velvet Cabaret website.
