I am pleased to announce the March 2007 opening of “Bombshell Betty’s,” a dance studio / gallery / community space / boutique in San Francisco’s SOMA district witha focus on the wonderful world of Variety and Burlesque. Stay tuned for updates on the revamped and expanded classs chedule, more guest instructors and a wider variety of classes, community support programs, and fun events! I am also seeking instructors for the expanded curriculum. If you currently teach or would like to teach a variety or burlesque related class or workshop, contact me!
The boutique and art gallery will focus on supporting and showcasing work from variety and burlesque artists (localand worldwide) and Burlesquercise students. The boutique will be run on a consignment basis, and I will post a call for submissions as soon as I’m ready to take in items. Sweet Cheeks has agreed to curate the gallery portion of the space, so I’ll let her send out announcements once we’re ready to get rolling with that end of things.
