Judith Stein, “The Lady Divine” got her start in the 1970's as a go-go dancer in Eugene, Oregon and quickly developed her own unique combination of elegant and comedic striptease that took her to the far corners of the world to perform. Recognized by both the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas and the Canadian Burlesque Hall of Fame, Ms. Stein is known as Canada’s “Grand Beaver.” Her dynamic performances and cheeky wit have made her a beloved feature attraction at burlesque festivals and events all over North America and Europe and she was featured in the award winning documentary, The League of Exotique Dancers. 


Founded in 2005, The Twin Cities Burlesque Academy is the first studio of its kind in the region. This uniquely specialized school offers vintage and modern burlesque techniques, performance workshops, intensives series and bachelorette parties. Students can develop their own solo acts and take special workshops such as Costuming, Character Development, and Physical Comedy. The mission of the Academy is to teach burlesque technique, performance, and history while encouraging self-expression and body confidence. Academy students are men and women who vary widely in age, shape, background, and experience. Many just want to try burlesque on a whim, others are budding performers or artists in a different genre, and some have moved on to become fixtures in the national burlesque scene. Weekly classes are taught by the best in the biz focusing on retro and modern burlesque techniques, while workshops and intensives offer special topics. 


Academy founder Ophelia Flame is one of the foremothers of the neo-burlesque moment and has enjoyed producing, performing and teaching burlesque since 1999. A three-time title holder from The Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas, Headmistress Ophelia received a lifetime achievement award in 2017 and was recently nominated #9 of the Top 50 burlesque performers in the world by 21st Century Burlesque Magazine.  At age 50 and the top of her game, Ms. Flame continues to give an irreverent middle finger to traditional ideals of beauty as she inspires fans to embrace their most beautiful, sexy and confident version of themselves at any age.
