You are a perfect 10 and so is Burlesquercise!

Join us the weekend of June 7-9th to celebrate 10 years of Sexifying your Soul! 


Special Guests Julia Harnett (So You Think You Can Dance Canada) and Henry Byalikov (Dancing with the Stars) are coming to celebrate, perform and share their incredible talent with us! 

Our marvellous Miss Kim is retiring so Friday evening will be dedicated to her, with tributes, laughs and of course wine, all fitting for this phenomenal woman, dancer, teacher and inspiration to us all!

And of course the whole reason Burlesquercise has reached this 10 year milestone, the beautiful, powerful, sexy tribe of fantastic females strutting their stuff!

This once in a lifetime weekend will conclude with Sunday workshops taught by our special guest stars, Julia and Henry!  Both are currently based in NYC and have worked on and off Broadway and in television! 2 levels and 2 workshop rooms to choose from!

A milestone not to be missed!
