Some of the stripping routines taught in this program are:

Lingerie: very cute routine. Learn how to remove a bra, using shoulder rolls, and yes removing panties and using a cute little kick to send them out of the way
Skirt and blouse practice with three sections, slipping out of a shirt, or skirt, very playful
Evening gown: flirtatious and very, very sexy
The men's clothing routine: fun, playful and sexy. This routine is so cute, performed in a fedora, men's underwear, shirt, tie, socks and garter socks, with heels.Read more ›
Unlike Jo's earlier DVDs, Honey and Spice: Sensual and Fierce Burlesque and Silk and Feathers: Burlesque Fan Dance which required special costumes, this DVD is so terrific because it uses readily available clothing, that you might have in your closet, and shows us how to make the most of it. The outfits she uses are:
Sweat pants, hoodie and T-shirt
3 skirt and blouse outfits
Dress and evening gown
Jeans, long boots and turtleneck sweater (all difficult clothes to remove)
Garter belt and stockings explained and demonstrated
Among her many credits, Jo Weldon is headmistress of the New York School of Burlesque, and really knows her art. All you need for a prop is an ordinary straight-backed chair, and an appreciation of the human body. Music is by Debra, Ronnie Magri, and J.C. Hopkins, and fits the practice sessions well. One of the best things about striptease, and it is not a gender specific art either, is that one can have tremendous fun with it. So go through your closet for some nifty clothes, put on this DVD, and enjoy!
What's truely wonderful about this DVD (which there are many FABULOUS aspects about it) is that you learn to make ANYTHING you're wearing or doing, SEXY. After watching a few routines, I pause the DVD to get a glass of ice tea. As I walked into my kitchen, I caught myself walking SEXY....WoW this is FUN! It Feels Good to Feel Sexy!!! Buy this DVD, you'll love it!!!!!!!!
I started reading the handbook 2 week into my 10 week burlesque class I took on the west coast. Once I read it, I felt so much more comfortable and informed with what the instructors were teaching and now when I watch others perform. I have never met Jo or been on the east coast but if I ever visit, I know where I am heading!
