Happy New Year! Don’t Make Resolutions. Try This Instead!

Ready for the new year?

Hello, friends! 
 

What a year, eh? Gutters and strikes, roller coasters, plot twists… However you want to call the goods and bads of 2016, I’m sure we’re all ready to hit the RESET button that New Year’s Eve brings to mentally recharge for the next 365 days.

After all…It’s a marathon, not a sprint! Right? 🙂

 
So what’s your next step?

Don’t Make Resolutions.
MAKE GOALS & PROMISES!

Despite our best intentions, resolutions often fail. We tend to break our resolutions by month’s end because they tend to be overly optimistic (hinging on “perfect” conditions) and more than a little vague.  

On the flipside, GOALS and PROMISES are much harder to break because they involve a lot more internal and external investment. 

  • When we think of GOALS, we develop strategies and create new tiny, manageable habits that build towards them.
  • When we make PROMISES to ourselves and especially to others, we feel a lot more accountable to not let anyone down.

Want to be involved in a dynamic community? Become more physically active? Make new friends? Make art?

Let’s see if Fishnet Follies can help!

MAR 26: Showgirl Heels & Can Can Workshops with ARIEL HELVETICA!

WORKSHOPS WITH ARIEL HELVETICA!

ONE DAY ONLY! 
SATURDAY, MARCH 26, 2016 

REGISTER ONLINE NOW!

Fishnet Follies is proud to present TWO special workshops with international showgirl, ARIEL HELVETICA!

WORK YOUR SHOWGIRL HEELS 
@ 2:00PM – 3:00PM

Professional high-kicker (and high heel lover) Ariel Helvetica will teach you how to work your showgirl heels like a pro.

Learn how to pick the right type of heel for your own unique self, and the difference between pumps, platforms + pointed toes.

Gain confidence, grace and poise while embracing the heels you choose. Ariel will help you with balance and posture in a series of across the floor work along with stretches and exercises to take your heel game to the next level.

Please bring your favorite heels and be ready to fall in love with them all over again!

CAN CAN KICK IT! 
@ 3:15PM – 4:15PM

Did you know “Can Can” means scandal in French?  This high-energy dance originated in the working class ballrooms of Paris and eventually became a highly choreographed routine lasting 10 minutes or more.

In Ariel’s  “Can Can Kick It” class you will learn the suggestive, provocative and high kicking dance move that was once considered “shocking”.

Come learn from professional high-kicker Ariel Helvetica who has performed the Can Can on stages in France and around the world.

This class is for all levels, and is perfect for those looking to increase flexibility and strength.

What to wear or bring:
You may bring a small character heel or boot and bring an ankle length skirt but not a necessity. And come ready to kick-it!

Open to ALL women and men, regardless of shapes, sizes and backgrounds, 18 years and older. No prior dance or performance experience necessary!

Hosted by Fishnet Follies School of Classic Burlesque
