The Atlanta School of Burlesque has been providing burlesque education in the broader Metro Atlanta area since 2013. As an institution dedicated to burlesque education it is of the utmost importance that we provide our students access to the best instructors in our industry. Our “Weekend With . . . ” series of burleque weekenders does just that.
Our 3rd in the series brings What the Funk?! Fest from Seattle to Atlanta for weekend of classes, shows, and burlesque education that will blow your minds! What the Funk?! is and an all-BIPOC Burlesque Fest that was conceived of when founder, Mx. Pucks A’Plenty, considered doing a classic burlesque number to a Stevie Wonder song, but realized it wouldn’t count as a classic era song choice. This got their wheels turning and What the Funk?! was born.
