“If you’re reading this wondering if you should take a class with Jo, this is your sign to do it. I found burlesque exciting but I wasn’t sure if burlesque was “for me” and being able to put together my own act to perform on stage was daunting. Jo is a great teacher that gives you the information that you need to know and fosters a creative environment for you to succeed in whatever you want to accomplish. After taking this class, I felt empowered as a woman, as an artist, and as a performer."

"This whole experience exceeded any of my wildest dreams and expectations and has only strengthened my desire to explore more of this beautiful world that is burlesque! Working with Kathryn was also a dream: she was very easy to communicate with and gave stunning images in a very timely manner. I can't wait to work with the NYSB and Kathryn again in the future!! "
