Event Overview

Burlesque is the art of the tease, the reveal, declaration of sexuality, the power of vulnerability. It is different for everyone. Burlesque transforms both the viewer and dancer, in the attitude of embracing your own body and sensuality in all its forms.  Join Burlesque star Gaea Lady in learning the magic of your own sensuality and sexuality through the art of burlesque. Together we explore classic burlesque movements and attitudes, working with chairs, gloves, high heels, and our own bodies. Exercises to cultivate sensuality and confidence in a safe space will help open students to their own unique expressions.

No experience necessary, all are welcome. Come with an open mind and a spirit of fun! (and stay for Bellydance Basics from 7-8:30!)

Andrea, aka Gaea lady is an enchantress by nature, and is a force that will make you feel the very earth move. Fusing her 25 years of dance training in forms from classical to modern - neovintage to the ethereal, she cultures an intentional style that is all her own. Integrating dance, art, visuals, costuming, concept, fire, silk fabrics, temple dance, hoops, and deep seated intention, her inspiring performances mesmerize and deeply touch. She seeks to share knowledge and empower others through her performances and teaching, forging connections and community.

Gaea is the winner of the Burlesque Hall of Fame’s “Best Debut” and “Most Classic” in 2016, and performed at the “Icons & Allstars” show in 2017. She graces festival stages such as Show Me (St. Louis), Envision (Costa Rica), Electric Forest (Michigan), Symbiosis (California), Oregon Eclipse (Oregon), Burningman (Nevada), and Bhakti Fest (California). In her home base of Chicago, Gaea performs at Unbridled at Untitled, the Kiss Kiss Cabaret, the Naughty Little Cabaret, the Vertical Sideshow, the Drifter, Soho House, with Pyrotechniq Fire Troupe. She also is a vegetarian chef, traveling to teach and nourish for movement and wellness retreats.
