This is a Womxn’s only body-positive play party. It is a space to explore your sexuality with womxn, and to learn new things to create connection and intimacy. Please read the *statement below to better understand its scope.

Life sucking your sexy? Leave your inhibitions and self doubt at the door and let your inner ShowGirl shine in this body positive Burlesque class guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a wiggle in your walk!

Join High Priestess of Tease and ShowGirl Temple Creatrix Eva D’Luscious to learn her 3Ps of Tease and a sassy routine combining old time Burlesque moves like Bumps, Grinds, Shimmies and Sassy Struts.

Through dance we’ll co-create a safe, welcoming space where we can release our inner ShowGirls to perform and cheer for each other. Class will end with a delicious stretch and sharing session.

Eva utilizes her lifelong dance and fitness training to connect you with your body and provide a solid foundation to move safely with confidence so you can dance through life, and get a surprisingly fun workout.

Wear a sassy outfit you can easily move in and if you have them bring, long satin gloves and dance heels/heels with ankle straps. Eva’s rule about heels is high enough to feel sexy, low enough to be safe, and feels bare feet are also sexy. A water bottle and a playful attitude are a must!

Eva D’Luscious is a Portland-based MC, Burlesque performer, producer and instructor known for putting her students at ease and instigating a love of all things sparkly. A self-avowed dance, holistic living and fitness nerd on a mission to unite and uplift through joyful movement, she has supported many women in revealing their sparkly selves and welcomes beginners and experienced dancers to her classes.

Invite your girlfriends and come with an open heart! We look forward to seeing you there!

*This event is for all self-identified womxn. This group is following the path of other inclusive womxn’s groups in the Portland community and believes the following statement from the Bad Girls leather group to be a fitting and “broad definition for self-identified women: (...) inclusive of cisgender, transgender, and intersex women, along with gender expansive individuals who find home within women’s spaces. This can include gender non-conforming, agender, two-spirit, butch, femme, and many other identities.
An expanded definition of the term “gender expansive” can be found in the gender statement of the WFTDA.”
