We will take you through a magical journey through the history of Burlesque! 

This workshop will be all about Burlesque, its origin and its development through time. We will start from the beginning to when burlesque started, why it started and how it started. Then, we will get through the different branches of burlesque genres that was developed from the origin burlesque seed. Each of these branches have their own icons and styles, which you will learn about and try out on your own body. Furthermore, the use of props is a big part of burlesque overall and therefore you will learn when and where the props popped up in the timeline of burlesque. 
You will be seated in front of a big screen, where a presentation of the history of burlesque will be presented. We will have quizzes and questions for you throughout the presentation and you will try out some of the iconic moves yourself along the presentation. 

You will hear and learn about icons like, Josephine Baker, Sally Rand, Gypsy Lee Rose and Dita von Tease and try their iconic moves in a choreography which you will learn at the end of the workshop. This history workshop about the burlesque timeline will end with an introduction to some of the new genres and biggest artists of today - and off course a little about the history and development of Sweet Burlesque. 

What to wear and bring?
You might want to bring some snacks and water/drink to really enjoy the presentation. Also, as we will be dancing in the end of the workshop and a little throughout the presentation, you should wear clothes that you feel comfortable in and that you are able to dance in. You are more than welcome to dress-up as your favorite idol or in your interpretation of what Burlesque is to you <3
