My private session is all about helping you push the movement or intention of the act further. Most performers come with the act mostly completed or a concept. By watching your personal musicality and listening to the song's nuances, I help create "building the tense" of the tease for a more engaging performance. I also help with choreography where needed for a smoother transition of movement and timing.

I've learned the importance of timing and eye gazing through her mastered technic classes. As a professional artist myself, I am in awe being able to work along side such a talent!"

"Taking a private burlesque class from Simone del Mar has been on my bucket list since the first time a saw her perform. I am fairly new to burlesque and wanted to learn how to enhance my performance.
Simone obviously put a lot of thought, time and expertise into preparing my private class. She reviewed and analyzed my performance videos before my class. Her plan to utilize our time had allowances for me being extremely nervous and needing time to get out of my head.
Simone's class was both fun and challenging. Her hands on approach and direct but caring feedback for enhancing the quality of my performance was invaluable. She has a relaxed and logical method of teaching that inspired me.
If you are seeking a non-judgemental, passionate and giving instructor who will give you tools to enhance your creativity, Simone del Mar will get the job done."
