About this Event

Michelle L'amour, award winning internationally known burlesque performer and instructor, brings you a FUN, NO PRESSURE, burlesque class. The class is designed to create community, joy and happiness. Absolutely zero experience is necessary.

On April 18th at 1pm PDT, we will come together and raise money for Too Young to Wed. This organization officially launched in October of 2012. Their mission is to empower girls and end child marriage globally. Here is an excerpt on the issue from their website: https://tooyoungtowed.org/

'Child marriage remains common in rural areas and among the least-educated and poorest of the poor. Parents and communities want the best for their girls. But they may not realize that by curtailing girls’ education and marrying them off at such a young age, they are putting the girls at risk and perpetuating the cycle of powerlessness and poverty. Early marriage limits a girl’s options for the future and her community’s opportunities for development.

Child marriage exposes a girl to multiple sexual and reproductive health risks. Young girls are neither physically mature enough nor psychologically ready to become wives and mothers. The results can be catastrophic for the girls and their families. Often married to older husbands, young brides are expected to prove their fertility and they are subjected to early, frequent, and forced sexual relations, regardless of their own desires or needs. Many girls have little or no access to services and information that might protect them from pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. Physically underdeveloped girls are especially vulnerable to obstetric fistula, which is a hole in the birth canal caused by prolonged labour without prompt medical intervention.'

Upon registering, you will receive the Zoom link for the class on your confirmation page. You will also receive an email after your purchase. Additionally, another email will be sent closer to the event.

If you do not receive an email with the Zoom link, please check your spam or junk folders.

Please join me in helping to eradicate this dehumanizing practice.
