ESSENTIAL TEASE: A Burlesque Student Showcase

FRI OCT 28 | Doors 7:30 | Show 8
$15, $12 members (+$3 Service Fee) $100 VIP reserved table for 4 | Virtual $10

Essential Tease is a transformative series of burlesque classes that has had its physical home at Creative Alliance since early 2019. This series guides students through burlesque act creation from start to finish through internal and external work, all the while incorporating mindful techniques on and off the stage. 

Essential Tease instructors Jacqueline Boxx, Tempete La Coeur, and Ruby Rockafella are proud to present our fall 2022 performers!

FEATURING GUEST MC JENNIFER EDEN: Jennifer Eden is your favorite Femme Daddy, dominating crowds from the classroom to the dungeon. A certified sexuality educator and pleasure coach, this Black queer nonbinary femme has been schoolin' folks on consent, gender-affirming language, and kink dynamics everywhere from BDSM dungeons to Ivy League universities up and down the east coast for over a decade. Through poetry and storytelling, they bring their unique style of sensual edutainment and wet humor (never dry) to every stage they touch. Audiences in Philly, New York, New Orleans, DC, and of course their hometown of Baltimore, have all experienced Jennifer Eden, Mx. Eden if you're nasty. Be ready to laugh. Be ready to think. And be ready to open yourself to pleasure in ways you've never experienced.
