About the teacher
Rita Lynch is an italian burlesque performer.
Her style is elegant and seductive, with a touch of irony. Her character has two faces: the sophisticated one is inspired by the Hollywood movies of the 40′s; the funny one has the appeal of the pin-up girls of the 50′s.
Rita Lynch performs in Italy and throughout Europe with her acts, and has been awarded “Best Overall” in 2012 at the Dublin Burlesque Festival.
In 2011 she has been one of the protagonists of “Lady Burlesque”, the first talent show in the world dedicated to this performing art, produced by Sky Uno.
Behind the character of Rita Lynch there’s Benedetta Barlone, an eclectic artist, model, actress and singer with several prestigious international experiences.

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!
