“…a charming, talented, experienced, and superb instructor. Her personable instruction and easygoing, approachable attitude made the learning process a breeze. After the class, I felt prepared and confident.”
Sara Jayne – burlesque performer ‘Viva Foxx’ and owner of Stray Poodle Media.
“Vixen is an amazingly supportive, inspiring and dynamic coach… I used to be really heavy and didn’t feel connected to my new, thinner body. I also believed I couldn’t dance my entire life, which made me even more self-conscious. I went from having a panic attack the first class, to performing my act on stage like a pro 10 weeks later. It was the most fun I’ve ever had in my life! I now feel sexy, confident and strong. This class was a truly transformative experience! Don’t think about it, just do it”
Kim C. – Casting Director
“I love working with Vixen. My confidence level is back up, I’m learning to appreciate and love my body and myself again. Vixen is so creative, inspiring and helpful. I had a hard time deciding what act to do, what story to tell, she’s been extremely patient with me and has helped me so much. Not only is she a great teacher, she’s fun to be around, smart, easy going and a total pro. When I saw her perform, she blew me away. I knew right than I’m in good hands. I love her class, her style and her as a person in general. I’ve seen some of her other students work on their acts and transform on stage, truly amazing. Plus, it’s fun to meet like-minded people and make new friends.
I highly recommend her!!!!”
Jacqueline Van Bierk – Singer
“I wanted to unlock my inner goddess who had been handcuffed by bad relationships, bosses who had berated me, women who had bullied me…and a huge lack of self-worth. I also wanted to express a side of me that was lost when I became mother.
My body is now shared, tugged and constantly sought after for comfort and protection. I wanted to feel like for a moment my body was my own again…never did I think it would have such a profound impact on my self-confidence”
Astrid Vause – Inspire Village Blog
” What I didn’t expect… was to find myself in a totally safe and friendly environment, with fun, friendly and encouraging women. I wanted what Vixen was talking about! I wanted to find out who I really was and what I wanted people to see. It wasn’t about stripping or nakedness at all…it was about empowering myself. Loving myself. All of me, even the “bits” that I was conditioned to think were faults… I left being able to say “i’m fabulous!”… and for the first time, I meant it! This is a class not to miss!”
Erin Treanor – Theatre Producer.
“FABULOUS! This class is wonderful for everyone–woman, man, performer, business professional, housewife. . .
Vixen is an incredibly talented actress/dancer that truly has the gift of being a great teacher. Her enthusiasm, knowledge, experience and patience allows all in her class to excel. I love Vixen and all that she does!”
Mona Harrington – Le Cordon Bleu Chef
“Vixen, really gives you the permission to come out of your shell and express yourself to the fullest. She provides you with great techniques in a comprehensive easy-to-learn way in a safe environment … Absolutely highly, recommend that anyone take this class — you’ll be a more confident, happy, and free person for it…. and have an absolute blast in the mean time. Vixen is the best!!!”
Katie Ann Mitchell – Actress/Singer
“I was able to learn insight into the burlesque world, something I had NO previous experience in. With her help and guidance, I auditioned and became part of The Dollface Dames burlesque troupe in LA. I am not easily impressed by people, but Cat was so good at what she did (and was so fun a person to be around) that she made it hard NOT to be wow-ed by her. I think comedian Steve Martin said it best – “Be so good they can’t ignore you!”. TAKE CLASSES WITH CAT. DO IT.”
Danielle -‘Ginnie Hendrix’ – Los Angeles (and now East Coast) Burlesque Performer
