These ladies know a thing or two about feeling the fear and doing it anyway!
This is their "post-show-afterglow!" Sexy, isn't it?

I often hear women say to me "I want to do this Burlesque Experience, but I'm scared..." I have to chuckle from my own point of recognition- I'm scared quite often, too! But I do know this - that being scared no longer stops me from doing what I'm drawn to do.
In fact, IF you're scared, that's a great indication that this is something you should do. Feeling 'nothing' - eh... boring.
YES, you're scared- you should be. The entire Burlesque Experience will rock your comfort zones- from the dancing we do in class together that first week, to the big BUST-OUT the night you perform your solo for a live audience... this is scary stuff!
But it is also true that the joy, exhileration, pride and confidence you will feel on the other side FAR, FAR outweigh any fear you feel leading up to it.
In fact, I encourage women who AREN'T scared to check their pulse!
Instead of saying "I want to do this but I'm scared" what if you altered one little word... "I want to do this AND I"m scared." You CAN be both scared and doing this. In fact, if you wait to NOT be scared, I doubt you'll do anything very exciting in your life!
SO come on ladies, FEEL THE FEAR and do it anyway. You will be sooo glad you did!
