Frequently Asked Questions

What do you wear to a burlesque dance class?

You should wear something you are comfortable in. This could be anything from leggings and a t-shirt to lingerie. You don't have to strip if you don't want to. We love a good mime! Although we find it can be very liberating to twirl your tassels.

How old do you have to be to attend a burlesque class?

Due to the adult nature all members must be aged 18 or older

What do I need to bring to class?

Plenty of water! Ruby will have you working up a sweat as her classes are just as much about staying fit as they are about having fun and being sultry. We also recommend you to bring knee pads as some routines contain floor work.

Is there parking?

Yes, a part of Tesco Extra car park.

Bulwell

Yes, we have private parking as well as on street parking. We're also close to bus and tram stops.

Do I have to get naked?

No, you can remain fully clothed. We never require anyone to get completely naked. You can always wear layers if you want to practice removing clothes and if you want to strip down to your pants and tassels then that's okay too.

Can I just do solo classes?

Yes, we offer private one to to one sessions and we also offer a mentorship.

How do we hire you for an event and what do you offer?

We offer solo and troupe performances, showgirl walkabout and we can organise a full burlesque show between the length of 1-3 hours which include a host, solo or/and troupe perofrmances, stage kittens, showgirls and optional extras. 

Are cameras allowed at burlesque shows?

We do not permit the use of cameras during any of Ruby's Rebels shows. We'd prefer it if our audience would sit back and enjoy the show rather than watching through their phones. We provide a photographer and videographer for our performances and we regularly upload content to our Youtube and Instagram accounts.
