Each week you will get to learn a different style on the chair and also learn  one incredibly smoking hot group choreography of which you may have the opportunity of perform a Sugar Blue graduation show. ( only if you want to)

New! Beginner's Belly dance for Burlesque 6 week course!

Adora Derriere - Wednesday, December 23, 2009

Looking to add some sensual hip movements and hot shimmies to your dance vocabulary?  Then you need to attend the freshly redesigned Beginners Bellydance for Burlesque course!  With the roots of burlesque pegged squarely in the Middle Eastern art of bellydance, no burlesquer should be without a basic background in this sensual and seductive dance. 

Trixi Tassels has been studying Middle Eastern dance for 10 years and will guide you through the basic movements & steps, veil handling and how to fuse these into your burlesque dancing.

We'll be working with a classic burlesque track, 'Real Gone' by Sam Taylor & His All Star Jazz, to show you just how bellydance can be worked into your choreographies.  You'll find the sensual movements lend themselves naturally to burlesque and their inclusion in your dancing will bump you up a notch on the vamp scales!

Apart from tapping into a little exotic sex appeal, this class is also a great way to exercise and meet new friends, plus it's fabulous for developing strength and control in your abdominals and core muscles. This course is guaranteed to get your hips rolling, your torso swaying and your belly undulating!

What's the difference between the Intro course and the Burlesque Beginner's Dance course?

This is the most asked question that we get! The Introduction to Burlesque course is more of theory based course which will go through the fundamentals of burlesque as a performance art, such as the art of tease, the history, how to do vintage hair and makeup, costuming  as well as some burlesque dance etc..
The Burlesque Beginner's Dance course is exactly that! Its a course which has 6 weeks of Burlesque dance in its diffferent forms - chair, floor, cane, glove and boa routines as well as group choreography. Which should you do first?? It doesnt matter!  Many girls do these course along side of each other as they compliment each other perfectly!
