Are you a Breast Cancer Survivor? Learn how you can take classes for free! Want to donate to survivors taking classes? See our PINK LIGHT page.

Our Mission:Pink Light Bay Area provides burlesque classes based on the table of contents in the Burlesque Handbook, written by Jo Weldon. These classes will remain free to all survivors and those currently receiving treatment for breast cancer. Pink Light Bay Area will have a focus on finding fun. These classes are pointed at women looking for a one-two punch of fierce femininity and silly celebration to help reclaim their bodies. As Pink Light as a whole works towards non-profit status we will be seeking supporters and partners such as Center for Sex and Culture which will provide space for this classes and other materials needed. All students are potential teachers as we aim to spread this experience as far and wide as possible. These classes are also available to any friends or caregivers of a survivors as long as they are attending with those personally impacted by breast cancer. Get back and give back to yourself!
