What my students say

Gina Stirling with Santosha Storm
It's always nerve racking meeting someone new, especially someone you have seen perform and you admire immensely. I reached out to Gina for a private burlesque class and she instantly made me feel safe and comfortable.
 
She was very responsive with questions prior to the class and on the day arrived with energy, warmth and smiles. The class only being an hour was delivered with maximum punch, with Gina ensuring we covered all aspects we had wanted to include.
 
Not only was this private totally worth every cent, it gave so much more...I felt seen, heard and valued and that is something that stays with you for a long time. Gina is an absolute natural teacher and is enthusiastic about uplifting and supporting emerging artists. I would highly recommend doing a private with Gina! I can't wait for my next one!

FAQs
  • Are the workshops inclusive?
    The thing that I have always loved about Burlesque is that it has been a safe space for me to explore my creativity, my body and sexuality. I love providing that feeling for others, and so being able to share this time with you feels so special to me. Whether you are new to dance or have some experience, my workshops are open to all levels and I encourage everyone to learn at their own pace. My workshops are beginner friendly, body positive, open to all genders, bodies, identities, individuals of all backgrounds, skill levels and are sex positive. Ultimately my aim is to empower you and to hype you in the celebration of who you are, through the art of Burlesque.
  • Do you offer private mentorship?
    I offer private one to one sessions, both online internationally and in person. We can cover everything from Burlesque act development, acting methods, dance technique and business advice. Please email theginastirling@gmail.com to enquire and we can arrange a session when I'm in your city or country.
  • What is the minimum age for participation in the workshop?

Please bring knee pads if we are doing floor work together.
