Perfect for friends who want to try these classes together! Grab your BFF, partner-in-crime, parent, offspring, sibling, or accountability buddy and join us! Registration for 1 @ full price, and your friend gets theirs @ 50% off!

In this 4-week series, we will learn the fundamental concepts of classic burlesque movement and dance, while getting you started on the building blocks of crafting solos from your own unique dance (and non-dance) experiences. We’ll explore the notions of “feminine” vs “masculine” presentation, and also learn an abbreviated group dance routine so you can immediately put these basics to work!
1. Poise, posture and persona (poses, owning space, performance charm)
2. Dynamic presentation (entrances & exits, small vs. big moves)
3. Undress with finesse (practical striptease fundamentals)
4. Putting it all together (burlesque mini act rough drafts, improvisation activities)
* Includes access to private student website for additional resources, video tutorials, and more!

Open to any gender identity of all shapes, sizes and backgrounds, 18 years and older. No prior dance experience necessary!

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