  "Originally taking classes just for fun after getting out of an abusive relationship, Demure recalls feeling 'scared to death' at the first class and shyly hanging out in the back of the studio.

"Freya leads the burlesque equivalent of warm-ups, and as I take my place in the back of the class, she explains the proper technique of boob shaking and hip isolations.

I mimic her to the best of my ability, rediscovering muscles that I forgot even existed..."

  "Y'all, this class is the most fun I've had all year. I laughed so hard my face hurt. And I learned a dance routine! When I came home and showed the routine to John, he stared at me like he was seeing me for the first time and asked how much the classes cost and how often can I go. . ."
