Product Description

World Dance New York: #1 worldwide in professional dance instruction for striptease, burlesque, and exotic dance!

Whether you are fascinated with exotic dance, looking to grace the stage as a burlesque performer, or wondering about stripping for your significant other, you have arrived at the ultimate source of pro-level guidance on all aspects of striptease performance.

Jo Weldon, burlesque star and Headmistress of The New York School of Burlesque, will teach you how to take off EVERYTHING, to the last string of pearls and handful of lace lingerie, and how to make a breathtaking show out of removing every item, be it an earring, a wedding gown, or a sweat suit.

How do you take off a sweat suit for a viewer? A business suit? Stockings? Or even glasses...with grace, starlike flair, subtle flirtation, suspense and fanfare?

Jo Weldon shares a wealth of experience and a million tips and tricks to make a stageworthy show out of stripping from both everyday clothes and rigged burlesque costumes. Jo's Striptease program offers an array of striptease routines, first taught step-by-step and then demonstrated to music. Each routine is partly choreographed, partly improvised, so that you can layer your own personality and style of movement over Jo's suggestions. For each routine Jo gives detailed guidance about various aspects of striptease technique, such as body angles, the interplay of concealing and revealing, the order and choreography of items removal. She also offers acting and expression tips to add humor, suspense, and sophistication to your act.

Jo's striptease routines include:

* sweatsuit
*skirt and blouse (3 variations)
*dress / evening gown (3 variations)
*men's clothes
*jeans, boots, turtleneck
*wedding gown
*business suit
*corset and stockings

In addition Jo's program contains sections of cultural information about the nature and history of striptease in burlesque and exotic dance, striptease instruction resources, and advice on selecting a stage name for burlesque or striptease performances.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just what I was looking for 20 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase
I have wanted to learn to strip for some time but have felt a little shy about going to classes. This DVD is great for a beginner like me with a really encouraging and unintimidating presenter. She talks through each routine before demonstrating it and her humour is appealing and makes you comfortable with having a go. It's not overly flash and I guess if you have routines sussed it may be stuff you already know but I'm really glad I bought it and will definately pick up the other two DVDs over time.

Cheers Jo Weldon :~)

5.0 out of 5 stars "One of the Oldest Professions" 10 April 2010
Since antiquity (think Salome!) women have been stripping, and one of the things that makes this DVD fascinating as well as fabulous is Jo Weldon's history of the art of striptease and her detailed explanations of so many aspects of it, from the burlesque traditions to strip joints. Jo even talks about how to choose a name for yourself that is unique, and adds that "when you take your earrings off, you mean business."

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
Men's clothes
Jeans, long boots and turtleneck sweater (all difficult clothes to remove)
Garter belt and stockings explained and demonstrated
Business suit
Wedding dress

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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Dull 5 Aug 2013

I can't recommend this. By the time every action had been repeated again and again it began to become boring and not even useful. I should have listened to the other reviewers who seemed to have similar opinions!.
