ARMY of SASS
Performance & Training Group
The ARMY of SASS Performance & Training Group is a training program that is derived from the Nuvo‐Burlesque Dance brand. This is a movement where all women train together, dance together, go out together and most importantly, perform together! We call it a sisterhood!
In the ARMY of SASS Performance & Training Group, you will be taught by one of our fantastic Teachers (also known as a “SERGEANT”).
Training is split into two parts: a one-hour Nuvo-Burlesque Dance class where you will learn and practice the style, followed by a one-hour “choreography/rehearsal” in which you learn the piece(s) that you will perform in the upcoming “Chic-A-Boom Room” production – a show starring the women of “the ARMY of SASS Performance & Training Group”, along with other special guest artists.
The Chic-A-Boom Room is a Production & Booking House created and directed by Founder and Artistic Director of Nuvo-Burlesque Dance and the ARMY of SASS Performance & Training Group, Carla Catherwood.

The Captains are hand picked by our Commander‐in‐Chief, Carla Catherwood. These “CAPTAINS” have a strong respected following in their local area and are Leaders in marketing, administrative, and communication. They are responsible for ensuring that the program is promoted, organize, and delivered successfully in their local area.
Sergeants are strong Leaders who work directly beside our Commander‐in‐Chief, Carla Catherwood. They have the official stamp of approval from the AOS headquarters and are responsible for teaching the ARMY of SASS Performance & Training Group programmes, Nuvo‐Burlesque Dance classes/workshops, assisting with choreography, and casting for bookings.
#1 – Beginners
No dance experience necessary.
This is a program built around the every day woman! The ”Privates” is a group for women who have always wanted to dance, perform, and have a chance to be on stage in front of a crowd. Now here’s your chance! In this training session, one of our “Sergeants” will teach you all of the moves from scratch so you can perform one number in the Chic‐a‐Boom Room show in your city.
#2 – Intermediate/Advanced
Must have 3 years plus of extensive dance training. Must be able to accomplish a kick to 90 degrees and a double pirouette.
This is the perfect training program for women who have a trained dance background and can execute a double pirouette and kick past a 90 degree angle. This training session is also for our women in the “Privates” group that have trained and worked their way up and are looking for a challenge! Dancers in this group will be considered in casting for shows for Nuvo‐Burlesque. This group of ladies will train in the Nuvo‐Burlesque Dance class, as well as learn choreography to perform in the up coming Chic‐a‐Boom Room show in their area.
Rank #3 –
This is by audition/invitation only.
These women have worked their way up the ranks of the AOS and are continually training to be better and stronger. This is our most prestigious training group. These women have worked their way up from the beginning and have shown growth in their sexiness, sassiness, and of course their performance skills. These Dancers are more eligible for performance bookings. This group of ladies will train in the Nuvo‐Burlesque Dance class as well as learn choreography to perform in the up coming Chic‐A‐Boom Room show in their area.
