BURLESQUE

Becoming the ultimate showgirl starts here!

 

This is a course for anyone who wants to learn how to Burlesque, create their own choreography, perform it and own it! Throughout the course, Bex will teach you the fundamental techniques and movements that typify Classic Burlesque, including: bumps 'n' grinds, shimmies, showgirl poses, walking and dancing in heels, striptease, stocking peels, chair dance, fluid floorwork and (most importantly) performing to an audience. The aim of the course is not only to learn how to make the most gorgeous movement possible for performance; but also on feeling comfortable in your body and what it can do, captivating the audience and bringing them on a journey with you.

Please note this course requires active participation: you will not be expected to sheepishly copy what we to teach you; you will be expected to get involved, ask questions, practice between classes and give this your all! <3

For this course you will need: kitten heels or low heeled shoes comfortable enough to dance in, an open mind, and an open heart to step out of your comfort zone.
