Drop In Classes

Come and drop into the wonderful world of Burlesque, where you can be sensual one minute and cheeky the next!

After 10 amazing years of teaching burlesque we have decided to close our doors. Our drop in classes will be coming to an end on Thursday 28th October 2021

Drop In Burlesque Classes with Luscious Cabaret!

Burlesque can be sexy but most of all it can be fun!  Welcome to Luscious Burlesque Drop-In Classes, where we leave the world outside once that studio door closes.  We begin each class with a strut and a pose then go back to the roots of burlesque which began as satire, comedy and showing a little too much leg.

The real fun begins, in the form of colourful feather boas, ass shimmies and playing with a burlesque technique in our weekly routine.  Luscious Cabaret is all about making you feel welcome and building your confidence. No matter what size, shape, or gender you are, Burlesque is for everyone and we guarantee you’ll have a good time. Our classes are perfect for beginners and we welcome former burlesque students who just fancy a weekly shimmy!

Where and When are Classes?

Join us from 6:30pm every Tuesday and Thursday In the Pink Studio, Old Paradise Yard, Waterloo  for an hour of fun and silliness.

Please note:  We’ll be taking a break in August but classes will return in September

What will I need to bring?
Yourself, some comfortable clothes, and heels (but they aren’t necessary).  Little Lady Luscious (Emily) due to covid – 19 we can no longer provide boas and gloves for class. If you would like to buy some from us take a look at our shop.

Who will be teaching the class?

Meet Little Lady Luscious, but you can call her Emily in class, as that’s a bit of a tongue twister when you have a question.  She’s been teaching burlesque since 2011. These new drop-in burlesque classes have been tailored to those who want to have a bit of fun and get in touch with their sensual side.
You’re in safe hands, Emily can be a bit silly but she works with each student helping them to bring out their best selves. There is disabled access to this studio. If you do have a special requirement please let Emily know before class and she can adapt the choreography.

How much does a class cost?

£8 online and £10 in the studio

How to Find The Pink Studio.

Old Paradise Yard, 20 Carlisle Lane, Waterloo, London, SE1 7LG 

We’re based in the beautiful Old Paradise Yard just off Carlisle Lane.  The driveway is situated between Oasis Farm and the NHS car park for St Thomas’ hospital.  Look out for the Old Paradise Yard sign and the IKLECTIK Waterloo Creative Sign

When in the courtyard head toward the Act In unit straight ahead (with the orange door).  The pink door to the studio is on the left of the Act In unit at the end of the main building.

For Disabled Access

There is a small step at the entrance of the studio which is 2cm. The driveway to Old Paradise yard is uneven in places. Please let us know of your disability when booking so we can ensure we have alternative choreography ready for the class.
