AboutRegisterDress CodeInstructors

Beginners Welcome!

All genders welcome.

If you've got nipples, you can twirl tassels.
If you've got a butt, you can twirl assels.
And guess what you need to twirl a tasticle?
Put your best chest forward and learn this unique skill from a man (and a woman) who have taught tassel twirling on every part of the body in every part of the world. From NYC to LA, Coney Island to Sydney Harbor, everywhere the globe spins, they've brought the twirl. Tassels, assels, and tasticles provided. Why should girls have all the fun?


• We'll provide the tassels. Wear a thong or other tight underwear, and be prepared to take off your shirt!.

This class will be taught by the following instructors:

Jo "Boobs" Weldon

Just the nip of the iceberg. By the end of this class, you'll be able to twirl from almost any part of your body. The Headmistress of the New York School of Burlesque, author of The Burlesque Handbook, has gotten thousands of men and women twirling internationally. For the past three years she was named one of the top three burlesque performers in the world by 21st Century Burlesque Magazine.
