The very first graduating class of the newly established Deb au Nare’s Burlesque Academy of Asheville will be making their stage debut with acts created during the 6 week Burlesque 101 course. The event provides the aspiring burlesque performers a space for them to show off what they have learned in class and encourage others to sign up for future classes. The Burlesque Academy graduation show will be held Tuesday, February 24th at The Mothlight in West Asheville, NC.

“I'd love to see more burlesque performers on the Asheville stages”, said Deb au Nare, founder of Deb au Nare’s Burlesque Academy of Asheville, “there are so many talented and creative individuals in this city that are interested in burlesque but are not sure how to get started. I wanted to provide that needed guidance with the school as well as a place for them to present their art on stage for a supportive audience.”

Deb au Nare’s Burlesque Academy of Asheville will begin another 101 series starting March 1st that will also include the opportunity to debut in front of a live setting. Plans for future classes include a 102 series and various drop-in classes such as chair dance and prop work.
