You’ve always wanted to be a burlesque queen, haven’t you?

Well guess what, girlfriend, it’s a lot of work to learn how to twirl those tassels, dance in six-inch heels and tease the wolves.

The Orange County Underground Burlesque Society (that’s them, above) is conducting a workshop to teach you the basics. Called “Burlesque 101,” it features four classes between July 25 and Aug. 15.  All that sweaty study ends with a showcase performance on Aug. 21.

Details from OCUBS follow.
