What you'll do

Experience a day dedicated to your inner goddess in the spirit of a 1920s icon- Josephine Baker. There'll be a short meet and greet when you first arrive. Class will start promptly after that where we let our feathers fly in a pleasurable, fun burlesque dance lesson. The lesson will be 30 minutes of seductive moves you can use anywhere! The class is taught by Perle Noire, an inspiring black woman and founder of the legendary burlesque company House of Noire. After we're done (and you've worked up an appetite!), we get on the train one stop to Chez Josephine. There, we celebrate with a nourishing dinner and rich conversation about our figure’s glamorous life, and how she can be an everyday inspiration. You will learn the power of pleasure to heal, connect, and transform almost anyone.

Maryann

I visited Josephine Baker's home in 2008 as inpiration for a new book. I grabbed a last-minute trip to Paris to find out how she became one of the world's most famous women. Josephine lives in all my female heroines. She is an embodiment of freedom, and her legacy still lives here in NYC. Along with being a published author (St. Martins Press), I'm also an instructor of self-empowerment courses.
