Wine 101: Fundamentals of Wine and Wine Tasting (4 Wednesdays)
Wine should be fun and easy, but many of us feel intimidated and overwhelmed by restaurant wine lists or wine shops with hundreds of selections.  Let's face it...sometimes it's easier to just get beer.   The Boston Wine School is here to help!  Wine 101: Fundamentals of Wine and Wine Tasting is a 4 session course designed to help our students become more comfortable and confident with wine.   Here at the wine school, we believe that learning about wine involves learning more about yourself in a 100% Wine Snob Free Zone.  Our goal is to help you understand and communicate what you are experiencing when you are enjoying a glass of wine. In just four classes, you'll have an understanding of the major wine styles, grapes and regions.  More importantly, you'll be able to identify and describe your favorite wines.  During class, appetizers and an assortment of cheeses will be served to introduce some of the fundamentals of pairing wine with food.   This session of Wine 101 will meet on the following Wednesdays:  September 16, September 23, September 30 and October 7, 2015. Can't make it to one of classes?  No problem.  You can send someone else in your place or make arrangements to attend a make-up class at a later date.    Sample Syllabus   WEEK ONE:  How to taste wine, and why!  What's with all the swishing, swirling, and spewing?  Get familiar with the 4 major wine styles and big 4 wine grape varieties. WEEK TWO:  Understanding wine grapes - sometimes knowing the grape(s) gives you clues about the wine experience you can expect.  See where your favorite grape varieties fall in the Spectrum of Wine. WEEK THREE:  Wines from the Old World - how do differences in climate, geography, culture and tradition impact a wine's style? WEEK FOUR:  New World wines, blind wine tasting and final quiz - we'll do a fun and interesting blind tasting in our last class to fire you up with wine confidence.  An optional final quiz will be offered for those wishing to earn their official Boston Wine School - Wine 101 certificate!

When: Sep 16, 2015 6 PM in Allston, Massachusetts (Wed, 16 Sep 2015 18 )

Beyond Basic Burlesque: Mystery Box Edition
Inspiration and creativity are the fuels of the burlesque dancer's engine. . .but sometimes we run out of fuel. In this advanced course, students are given a "Mystery Box" containing six elements which they must incorporate into a new burlesque act. The required elements are inspiring taking students out of their comfort zones and the using the provided components frees students' from the morass of decisions which sometime bog us down, allowing them to focus on the true creative process. At the end of the six weeks of guided development and feedback, students will have learned new techniques for overcoming roadblocks to creativity, and have the core of a stage-worthy new act. This course is recommended for students who have taken our Introduction to Burlesque classes or who have had some other burlesque instruction. Students who successfully complete the course will be able to perform their creations at The B.A.B.E. Student Showcase in October. Enrollment in this intimate and intensive class is limited to eight students to ensure that each student is afforded the personalized coaching she needs to perfect her routine. Classes are Tuesdays, August 11, 18, 25, September 8, 15, 22, 7:00-8:00pm Please note: There is no class on September 1st because of The Teaseday Club.
