The Academy of Burlesque and Cabaret has been collaborating with the indefatigable Rent-A-Muse to bring burlesque and cabaret workshops to Germany since 2009. Based in the Ruhr region, Rent-A-Muse (Yvonne Bentzinger) has spent a decade working in the creative industries. She is a sought after burlesque/jazz singer and regularly DJs at swing and burlesque events in Germany. After haven taken lessons with Gypsy Charms in London she decided the Germany needed a little bit of Gypsy’s brand of burlesque teaching.
Yvonne has hosted a series of Academy of Burlesque and Cabaret’s most popular workshops from burlesque beginners to Glamourama and Fan Dance. Reports on these workshops have appeared in numerous print media such as the Bild Zeitung, Prinz Magazine, Dynamite Magazine, in online broadcasts by WAZ and on ZDF Regional television. Gypsy (who is half-German) loves bringing the Academy’s burly mission to Germany.
