Throughout the burlesque class, Louise offered advice based on his personal experiences performing. He warned never to “go spread eagle” to an audience (that’s for strippers, he said), always fold your gloves after use to avoid wrinkles, and never throw your clothes into the audience (“Believe me, you won’t get them back”).
He also suggested that the vintage-style stockings used in the class are best used on stage.
“Seams are an aphrodisiac. They’re not work-appropriate,” he said, “unless you want to get a raise.”
