Burlesque Dance classes
If you loved the musicals "Moulin Rogue" and "Chicago" or if you are a fan of the movie "Burlesque" with Christina Aguilera and Cher, then you have come to the right place!
In our classes you will learn how to dance burlesque. You will be taught in how to dance with props such as a chair, hats or gloves. You can be the next Liza Minnelli! The class begins with an intens "ChairWork" session, a new kind of workout where we use chairs to improve our strength, flexibility and core muscles. After the warm-up you will learn a choreography that will be practice during the class. Throughout the season you will learn all the basic Burlesque steps and you will get to know how to handle different accessories such as gloves, canes, hats, fans, stockings etc.
During the season classes will be divided so you have four weeks practicing the same choreo and same prop. This way you will get more comfortable with each choreography and all its details and expressions. The goal is to prepare the students for the annual Dance Show at the end of each season (in May).
We promise you a fun and safe place where you will experience increased self-confidence and will learn how to express yourself through dance - WITHOUT being vulgar. You will gain more body awareness and learn to enjoy and embrace your body as it is, improve your posture and feel confident and sexy.
Dresscode is bare feet and any clothes you feel comfortable in. We always keep all our clothes on.
