+ What is the difference between Burlesque and Cabaret?

That's a really good question! Cabaret is related to Burlesque, but is more limited, typically a sketchy show at a restaurant where food and drinks are served and where artists are introduced by a host. Burlesque, on the other hand, is more broad and can be performed anywhere. Cabaret can be any kind of performer such as dancers, singers, athletes etc. where Burlesque is more into dance performance and satire.

What is Sweet Burlesque?

Sweet Burlesque is the very first burlesque dance school in Copenhagen that offers classes and shows within the burlesque genre. Our focus is to embrace the female body and to make women feel comfortable and gain body awareness through dancing. Sweet Burlesque is a place where women can feel feminine and sensual - a free space just for women. At Sweet Burlesque we take the main elements from the traditional burlesque which is tease, performance and satire and mix it with dance and choreography but without the use of nudity.


What do I wear for classes?

Classes are presented just like a dance class - wear comfortable clothing that you would wear to the gym.  
We dance in bare feet during classes except for heels classes. However, you are always more than welcome to put on corsages, lipstick etc. to spice it up!


What can I expect to learn in the classes?

Our regular classes starts with a warm-up on chairs followed by a review of technique or prop handling.
After this we work on small choreography that is built more on a regular basis during the season. Read more about our classes
