Have you always wanted to dance for your partner but felt too shy, or that your moves were a little too MC Hammer, not Jamie Lee Curtis? Introduce some cheeky sass and playfulness to your bedroom with classic burlesque! This class will teach you a bit about burlesque style and dance foundations, but the focus is on building confidence, giggles, and finding the moves that suit you. Unless those moves include twerking. Please no twerking.
Ladies only. (Sorry boys! We’re organising a men’s class soon).
Everything stays covered: no stripping is involved. The moves will be tasteful and founded upon classic blues burlesque movements from the 20s and 30s, using hips, the body, arms and hands to create sensual shapes. We’ll explore how to create mood with your eyes, and then we’ll put it all together to play and create a sensual dance with music. Come dressed in clothes that allow you to move.
