How to work a boa in burlesque.

You're gonna get the biggest boa you can find, like mine, mine's very think. You want a thick, big boa because you really want to be able to do all sorts of movement with your boa. Okay, so you can first start out with the boa around your arms, nice and loose like this.

Then its tale end, you can swing it around, play with the audience, get them wanting more and teasing them. Bank it slowly, bring it down, come up slowly with the boa. You could drape yourself with it, come back down, and then you come back and whip.
