A Lesson in Eroticism

A Lesson in Seduction

« Pinnacle of eroticism, pinnacle of exoticism,

Eternal lesson in seduction »…


As if by enchantment, a fatal beauty appears on an extravagant, lip-shaped red couch, a popular prop at the Crazy Horse Paris.

Completely dressed in black and utterly glamourous, the Crazy Girl, with her superbly arched back and sensuous curves, will lead you astray in her moving lesson in seduction.

A dazzling lesson in eroticism meant for women and a striptease the way it’s supposed to be performed… one thing is for certain, they won’t leave you indifferent!

A lesson in eroticism meant for women and a striptease the way it’s supposed to be performe

A great Crazy Horse classic

Black stockings, high heels and makeup… the “Lesson d’Erotisme” is a perfect illustration of the codes and principles that have made the fame of the illustrious cabaret, located in the heart of the Golden Triangle in Paris.

This solo act, as well as “Peek-a-Boo” and “Baby Buns” are undying classics from the repertoire of the Crazy Horse, founded in 1951 by Alain Bernardin.

Voluptuous, the dancer gracefully undresses to a song written by Jean-Pierre Lang and performed by the iconic Juliette Greco, also known for her famed “Déshabillez-moi”, released in 1967.

The red couch, inspired by Dali

This most sublime « Lesson d’Erotisme » is performed on a scarlet sofa, in the shape of a mouth, inspired by the surrealist Spanish artist.

Salvador Dali was indeed a regular at the legendary Parisian cabaret, which has welcomed, on stage and in the audience, the greatest stars of our time.

Act in the "Feu" show

The «Lesson d’Erotisme» is an act that was performed anew during the « Feu » show, created by the first ever Guest Creator at the Crazy Horse, the major shoe-designer, Christian Louboutin.

The show, performed in spring 2012, was also filmed in 3D and shown on big screens around the world. So very Crazy !
