    BurHop
    BurHop is a fusion of dance that brings the grittiness of hip hop and the sensuality of burlesque together. It creates a beauty in aggression and a celebration of imperfection that is expressed through the elegance of one's body. Classes are open to any skill level - the only requirement is that you enter with positive vibes and encourage your fellow dancers!

    Reconnecting With Your Body
    There are a number of various reasons why we've disconnected with our body or parts of our bodies. Through a guided meditation and physical exercises we will explore ourselves inside and out to reconnect with our fire inside and walk a bit taller and with more confidence in ourselves and our abilities. Wear comfortable clothing you can move in and makes you happy.

    Take any two of Kitty la Royall's three workshops on June 23rd for $35 -OR- take all three for $50.

    The Slow Burn
    We don't have to zip-zap back and forth across the stage to be interesting and engaging; slowing it down and moving with intention can build incredible anticipation and leave the audience drooling. We'll explore how to slow ourselves down through exercises and then learn a short but sensual and captivating routine. Wear comfortable clothing that makes you feel good and bring a pair of opera gloves for our dance.

    Take any two of Kitty la Royall's three workshops on June 23rd for $35 -OR- take all three for $50.
