LEVEL 1/2 BURLESQUE

Teachers: Red Hot Annie, Titty Perkins

Whether you've got an eye on taking the stage, spicing things up in the bedroom, or simply looking for a different way to work up a sweat, this introductory level burlesque class can accomplish all three. Vaudezilla's best known teachers & choreographers teach you fundamental stage terms and helps you get comfortable expressing yourself through dancing and using your body. In this class, you'll be encouraged to recognize 8-counts and remember choreography from week to week, and all the while, you'll become familiar with the basic moves - the shimmies, bumps, and grinds - that form the foundation of any sexy burlesque act. Each class starts with a short warm-up, followed by drills, and the largest portion of each 90-minute class is spent learning burlesque within the context of short choreographed dances. No dance or theatre background is necessary. All levels and genders welcome.

This class offers the opportunity for a short group performance at the end of the session! (Not required.)

Prerequisites: None

Class Limit: 10
