Burlesque Fitness has the dream of helping make collegiate burlesque accessible to college students who are interested in learning the art form of burlesque. We are a group that promotes both body positivity and burlesque learning and exploration. As a group we are always looking for new ways to learn and expose new members to the world of burlesque. We are looking to fundraise and go to the Great Boston Burlesque Expo. We were only partially funded by our college and are looking to raise the rest on our own. By going to this expo we can allow students a full exposure to classes, shows, seminars and workshops, as well as networking opportunities. We are fundraising money so that members can attend, we can travel to and from the expo, stay at the hotel, and feed ourselves. We are looking to bring approximately 8 people to the expo. With your help we can open the dialogue about what burlesque is and how it applies to Sarah Lawrence College students.
What We Need & What You Get
We need $1,500 to make this a reality, if not we can not afford to transport and house ourselves, thus making us unable to go.
By helping us out you will be helping support collegiate burlesque, What do you get in return?
Well, Pledging $1 and up gets you a thank you note in our showcase program.
Pledging $10 gets you a custom piece of artwork
Pledging $20 gets you a pair of pasties
Pledging $50 or more gets you all of the above and a tee shirt.
By helping collegiate burlesque you are giving the oppertunity to young people to take classes, seminars, network and see shows that are their first big exposure to what burlesque really is. We have been able to go in the past and it has resulted in the growth of the popularity in the art of burlesque. We also focus heavily on body positivity and the people who are going on this trip will be able to bring back more confidence and be able to teach and instuct others on how to build said confidence.
Other Ways You Can Help
Some people just can’t contribute, but that doesn’t mean they can’t help:
- Ask folks to get the word out and make some noise about your campaign.
This cause means a lot to many students, especially those who would not normally be able to afford somthing of this nature. By donating you are giving the gift of education and confidence. We need people who believe in collegiate burlesque and our quest for a better burlesque education.
