About the Corps de Burlesque Syllabus:

Burlesque performers and professionally trained dancers and teachers Trillian and Dahlia Dangerous (founders of Corps de Burlesque) have developed an official licensed burlesque syllabus with funding from CreativeNZ and support from DANZ.

This syllabus has been created with a view to set a standard of burlesque education in New Zealand. It will encourage better collaboration between educators, improve teaching methods and provide a solid and realistic framework for learning about this wonderful art form. All of these things will then further contribute to producing a high calibre of performer, be they amateur or professional.

The syllabus consists of a 6 level curriculum, each level focusing on history and fundamental aspects of burlesque. Va-Va-Voom Academy will be offering 2 of the 6 levels of curriculum for 2021, expanding in levels as the academy flourishes.

The levels that will be available through Va-Va-Voom Academy for 2021 will be:

Emerald Garter (available from February 2021): This is the compulsory entry level course featuring basic deportment, glove and stocking play.

Sapphire Garter (available from May 2021): Features bump 'n' grind technique, bra and corset play.

About Va-Va-Voom Academy:

Have you wanted to learn the art of burlesque, the ba-da-boom of comic timing, or the knack of characterization? Have you dreamed of getting up on stage, surrounded by feather fans and rhinestones while sashaying your way to burlesque stardom? Or have you just wanted to learn how to move and accentuate your best bits in a fun and frivolous environment?

Va-Va-Voom Academy is directed and taught by Lilly Loca, one of New Zealand’s prolific burlesque and drag personas. Crowned Supreme Grand Tease 2017, as well as holding many other awards and accolades under her sparkly suspender belt, she’s best known for being a consummate mistress of disguise.

Lilly is a qualified teacher of drama, as well as the Auckland licensee of the officially licensed Corps de Burlesque Syllabus, which has been created with a view to set a standard of burlesque education in New Zealand. Click here for more information on the syllabus.
