ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
Jo Weldon, aka Jo Boobs, is a pioneer in the neo-burlesque movement, and has been voted one of the Top 20 burlesque performers six years in a row in 21st Century Burlesque's annual international poll. She has been the Headmistress of the The New York School of Burlesque since 2004. She is a believer in burlesque as a means to introduce women who are shy about their bodies to enjoy the power of playful and/or confrontational exhibitionism, as well as creativity and self-expression through self-initiated theatrical performance. She has published numerous articles on burlesque, striptease, stripping, and sex work in general in magazines, newspapers, and anthologies since 1994. She is the author of "The Burlesque Handbook" (Harper Collins), the first book ever published on how to create burlesque routines, with a foreword by Margaret Cho, and has produced several acclaimed video programs for burlesque beginners with World Dance New York (http://worlddancenewyork.com/).
