Detroit School of Burlesque Classes

After many years of performing, Holly founded the Detroit School of Burlesque, the first burlesque school in Detroit to teach the art of the striptease. The school empowers everyone to give themselves permission to be sexy, whether that be in the bedroom or on the stage.

Burlesque classes focus on body-positive workshops.

All women are encouraged to join classes regardless of age, body type, ethnicity, orientation, or occupation.
