January Peer Reviews

January Peer Reviews are here!! (6:15pm – 8:15pm)

Burlesque Peer Reviews are an opportunity to further develop or assist with the creation of both old and new routines! Hosted by Cherry Cheeks, this is an event for community and performer growth.

Join us with a routine in progress or one you want to build upon and receive honest feedback. This is a safe space for your creativity and growth while sharing honest questions about your choices and insights.

Don’t have something to workshop but want to be involved? Come on by with your feedback! Only have a concept or costume? Bring that too!

There are 6 spots available for performers to present their routines, so if you are interested in presenting, please message Cherry Cheeks to get your name on the list. All levels welcome. Workshopping available by a recommended $5.00 – $10.00 donation to help cover studio costs. We want burlesque education & growth to be accessible for everyone & not limited by finances.

Spaces are limited, so please PM Cherry Cheeks if attending, though last-minute drop in spots may open!

We look forward to seeing you January 19th at Wild Roots Dance Studio! ????


Wild Roots Dance Studio has a set of stairs to get to the studio. If mobility is an issue, please reach out to Cherry Cheeks and we will see how we can assist you.
