Meet a February Speaker: Camille Burford!


Camille Burford is the owner and head instructor at a whole different SASS organization: Sensual Aerobic Sculpting Studio, or SASS NY. Her classes and workshops are physically demanding while emphasizing a feminine approach to fitness. She also loves History, Boobs, and Tom Sellick circa 1984.

As those are three things that we can all agree on, we’re titilated about Camille’s lecture on Old Fashioned Boobs at February 11th’s 3rd Annual Sexy SASS. And as our friend Karen Smith forecasted, there’s a 30% chance that you’re already coming!

We <3 NY Times’ New York Today Section

Mostly because we’ve gotten not one but two shoutouts! 

It’s the closest we’ve come to being in The Grey Lady, and the closest the “United Nations” and “The Society For The Advancement of Social Studies” will ever be. Needless to say, we’re pretty damn stoked.

Meet a January Speaker, Meredith Worrilow!


Meredith Worrilow is 100% Nerd. A consumer researcher by trade, she digs fact finding and cultural anthropology—which she believes was triggered by early exposure to the show COPS. When she’s not getting into other people’s heads, she’s busy reading, writing, and doing arithmetic.

Join the lovely Meredith for her lecture “Killer Parties: Funerary Celebrations”, where she’ll gives us a brief history of how mourners throughout the ages have used funerary to celebrate life and cope with death. Plus, raging Romans and crackdowns on electronic parties- all on January 14th at SASS!
