In this workshop, we’ll be celebrating all that jazz! With focus on the iconic dance stylization of popular 1950’s American musical theater, this will be fun and easy to follow, for dancers of all ages and levels! Inverted limbs, hunched-over postures, widespread hands, and meticulous isolations are no faux pas in this particularly dynamic style. Participants will learn the direct correlation between dance and music visualization, in fantastic interactive choreography set for the group.
Please wear all black dance or fitness wear, comfortable for movement. Jazz shoes, non-marking flat sneakers, or character heels recommended.

Hosted by the Asian Burlesque Extravaganza

Hot & Bothered: Candlelit Burlesque & Subtle-TEASE
Take power of your audience, with strong eye contact and wanton glances. This class will focus on stillness, slow movement, awareness of your own lovable body, and letting yourself go to raw, organic movement. Not only will you seduce the audience be it one or many, but you may even turn yourself on! This course is great for ALL LEVELS of performers who want to break it down, focusing on emitting more sensuality rather than being heavily-focused on intricate dance choreography. There will be interactive exercises with other students, as well as floor work movement. You will apply these exercises to a downtempo, lightly choreographed burlesque piece. Setting the mood with dim candlelight, you’ll be ready to carry on the heat back home to your own bedroom!

Level: Open
Dance styles: Modern, Contemporary, Burlesque, Bump & Grind
Attire: Long leggings and sleeves for floor work movement. Shoes optional.

Boa Play
The classic feather boa is always a favorite burlesque prop. But how you manipulate your feathery friend is when things can get coquettishly  sexy! Let’s play with the boa, teasing a game of peekaboo and satisfying innuendo. This class will go over statuesque poses, basic dance steps, turns, and struts as you don your feathered accessory!

Boas can be provided for use during class, but bring your own if you need the practice. Some dark feather dyes tend to bleed onto your skin, so wear a fitted long-sleeved top to avoid the rigorous clean up.

Organic movement is highly encouraged, as we work some exercises to encourage improvisation.  A choreographed combination will be taught, to implement the aforementioned.
