Margot currently performs with Philadelphia’s award-winning Peek-A-Boo Revue, Lehigh Valley’s Looking Glass Revue and continues to lend her vintage inspired go-go stylings all over the city. She has delivered her classic and clever performances to festivals such as The Nerdlesque Festival in NYC, Alternatease in Boston and every single year of the Philadelphia Burlesque Festival since its inception. Under her alias, Pizza Wolf, she headlined the first Hot & Cheesy: A Pizza Burlesque Festival in Indianapolis.

About

The Philadelphia Burlesque Academy started as the Peek-A-Boo Dance Clinic in 2012 when the Peek-A-Boo Revue moved their rehearsal home to their little studio on Cedar and Cumberland Streets in Fishtown.

The first few classes were taught by out of town guests – the world renowned Coco Lectric from Austin, Texas was the very first. In 2013 Peek-A-Boo’s Ginger Leigh started teaching beginner burlesque classes to students who returned week after week. Not only did their skills improve, their confidence and self love soared. Ginger knew something amazing was happening and that there was no other choice but to build on what had been started.

More guest instructors came through with workshops, including Darlinda Just Darlinda, Scotty The Blue Bunny, and Lola Forst just to name drop a few. Peek-A-Boo Revue’s Sophie Sucre and Cherry Bomb also joined the league of instructors. In 2016 it was time to expand further and give Philadelphia a true home for burlesque education. A place where people can simply have fun learning burlesque basics, as well as a place for new and experienced performers to learn from each other, practice their art, and build their community. The Philadelphia Burlesque Academy is a place where many burlesque methodologies can be found from performers and teachers from all over Philadelphia and beyond!
