Raven Virginia from The Garter Girls has graciously agreed to teach an Intro to Burlesque class for Boudoir Moments & Big Girl YYC!! She is a Calgary based actor, improviser, dancer, stripteaser and emcee, Raven Virginia has been teaching the art of burlesque for 8 years. With the focus always being on self love. This class will walk us through the initial steps of burlesque and no experience is required to have a great time.

The opportunity to co-host this amazing class with BigGirlYYC is an incredible showcase of female empowerment and building each other up. Boudoir Moments loves this opportunity so that future clients can get in touch with feeling okay in their skin and providing a safe environment for starting your self-love journey which can continue during your session where we will tap into your burlesque moves! BigGirlYYC and Boudoir Moments share a common goal of all women of all shapes, size and age to feel empowered and love the skin they are in. We both welcome you to join in this journey and step out of your comfort zone. 


Are all women welcome? YES! One hundred times yes!!! This is a welcoming space for women (cis & trans) of all ages, races, ethnicities, abilities, religions, sexual orientation, and size. Let this be a place to love big and to support each other as we move big, celebrate ourselves and our self-love journey.

What should I wear? Please bring comfy clothes you can move in, any knee protection you might need if we go on the floor and water bottles. Bare feet will work for footwear but if anyone has heels that are dance shoes or have non scuffing soles, those are welcome too.

What is the cost and where do I sign up? The class is $19.00/person and you can sign up using the link attached. Please note there are no refunds, but you are welcome to transfer your ticket to someone else.

This is my first meet up, how do I not feel alone walking into a room full of people I don't know? As this is a combination hosted class with both Big Girl YYC & Boudoir Moments, I can assure you that you are never alone. There is always someone (including myself or Erin of BigGirlYYC) who will be ready and willing to welcome you in with open arms. This is a community of zero judgement, come as you are in the body you have today!
