CHAIR DANCE

Intro to Burlesque: Chair Dance Conditioning & Choreography

Part Workout. Part Dance Choreography.

Learn poses and dance combinations incorporating the chair as your main prop/apparatus/dance partner. We’ll start with a core strengthening warm-up, pinup-inspired poses, then move on to dance moves progressively increasing in level of difficulty on chair and moving onto the floor.

This class will lay the foundation for a new group routine series to Rihanna’s “Skin” in October!

Led by Mynx d’Meanor.

  • Knee pads
  • Dance shoes (ballroom, character, jazz) or dance socks / “Foot Undies”

CHORUS CHOREOGRAPHY:
“THE MOOCHE”

A sultry tribute to the supper clubs of the Prohibition Era!  We will use solo jazz dance elements, work on dramatic poses, strong character/presence, partnering, and group formations.

 

CHORUS CHOREOGRAPHY:
“CHARLESTON”

Feathers will fly in this high-energy Jazz Age routine! We’ll learn the Charleston, jazz steps, and feather boa work in Busby Berkeley-inspired chorus line formations. Very cute and sassy Flapper girl styling!

CHORUS CHOREOGRAPHY:
“NIGHT TRAIN”

Our most classic group routine. Showgirl styling, elegant movements, smooth transitions, and the flirty flutter of feather fans.

CHORUS CHOREOGRAPHY:
“JUST A GIGOLO”

In this series, we will learn choreography for “Just A Gigolo”– a *NEW* suit and tie routine tailored for men and women of burlesque!

Inspired by the infamous striptease scene by Christopher Walken in “Pennies from Heaven”. Choreographed by reigning Burlesque Hall of Fame King of Boylesque Harden Reddy and Fishnet Follies director Mynx d’Meanor. We will use solo jazz dance elements, strong character/presence, group formations, and a couple of hat tricks!

Break out those fedoras!
