Bump & Grind Burlesque Parties!

Burlesque parties for the bachlorx in all of us!


Treat yourself to bad-ass bumps and grinds for your special event!  

Be it a traditional bachelorette, bachelor, bachlorx, birthday party or just a gang’s night out, the Newport Theater, a LGBTQIA+ inclusive venue, offers fun, sexy classes for your whole spectrum of party people - so call up your crew, no matter who they are, and unleash the sexy beast inside!



Our classes are as diverse as you are.  Our unique group of instructors offer classes in a variety of topics, and customize their class based on the specific tastes and preferences of each party posse. Throwing a Friday night party?  Take a class, then stick around and drink up with "Bye Bye Liver", the sketch comedy drinking game show (we have spirit-free cocktails, too!).  Throwing a Saturday night party?  Take a class, then stay and whoop it up at the Newport Theater's weekly drag, burlesque, and variety show "The Newport Peek-Easy!"
