Jo King: The Queen of Burlesque - and the best workshop for striptease, the theatrical way...
This is the moment you are waiting for: you see the legend first, she entertains you on stage in her very sensual way, and then one day, you are there, face to face with the Queen of Burlesque... Wow....!!
I believe that you have to experience as many new adventures as possible in your lifetime, so when I was presented with the opportunity to attend Jo King's workshop, I was very excited!
We were all meeting in the foyer and as I walked in I had to smile: there was nothing ordinary about Jo King, even if you hadn't met her before, there was no mistake! She was sitting, with a folder on her lap, just oozing glamour and femininity!
As we entered the dancing studio, the atmosphere went from tepid and shy to a warm, friendly and fun ambience within minutes. Jo King, the most professional teacher, who knows every trick, every movement, every wink and tease, knows exactly how to make us feel at ease.
Some of you might have experienced the type of workshop where you attend, are shown the moves, you repeat them, do a bit of choreography, and that's the end of the session. You go home feeling that you have learnt some good moves and hopefully you will use them again, but, the whole experience is somehow a bit clinical.
With Jo King, her warm, friendly touch makes you feel like you have known her forever and her personal approach brings the whole group together. It might be a bit cliche to talk about camaraderie and bonding, but that is exactly what you get there. The fun is contagious and regardless of shape or size, every single one of us in that studio felt gorgeous, sexy and excited at the thought of going home to tease our partner.
A true professional, Jo King gives nothing but constructive feedback, nothing false or disguised, just true support. Each one of us was encouraged to express the moves with our own personal touch.
And there we were baring all, ready for Fancy Chance, the expert in twirling the tassels with tease. Fancy Chance had us twirling those tassels in more ways than you can imagine... and the giggling went on and on, but wow did we learn how to twirl them? Yes, we certainly did...!
So, there you go, if you want to tease your man with the most exceptional Burlesque striptease, go spend a day with the Queen of Burlesque... she has it all...! If you don't believe me, just go and see for yourself...!
