For fans of Dita Von Teese and burlesque, Catherine requires no introduction – for the rest of us, here is a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn from one of the most influential and awarded burlesque stars of today. Catherine has competed in and won nearly every pageant and title available to striptease performers, holding over thirty titles and is a member of the Burlesque Hall of Fame.
Catherine is renowned for her extravagant costumes and elaborate props. Recognized as the premier fan dancer today, her most popular shows are classic striptease- complete with a giant champagne glass bubble bath finale. Catherine has also built a reputation as the best burlesque costume designer and creative director in the business.She has created dazzling costumes that are ornately hand-jeweled and feathered, with laborious attention to detail not commonly seen today.
Catherine is well-known for her work as creative director/costumer/choreographer for Dita Von Teese.The shows and costumes she has created have earned international recognition and acclaim. Each of her dazzling ensembles is paired with an equally lavish prop. Catherine has one of the most extreme collections of enormous props in the business, including a larger-than-life champagne glass, grand gilded birdcage, giant spider web, and a magnificent eight-foot tall waterfall complete with fountains and flowers.
More information at the Bijou Group website, from where I cut and pasted many of the words too (thank you). I hope that Catherine is performing too, so those of us not going to the masterclass can enjoy her work as well. Note that Masterclasses are being held in other states too.
