Course Description

Consisting of six 1-hour dance classes over six weeks, this course is an introduction to burlesque dance, the hottest trend in town, bringing together a sizzling dance style with elaborate vintage costumes, cool retro tunes and a lot of sassy fun!

Learn how to be a total glamour queen, how to walk and dance in sky-high heels and how to exude confidence and sex appeal! And of course, you'll learn all the fundamentals of burlesque dance!

You will learn the art of the feather boa dance, the glove tease as well as a sexy burlesque floor routine. Combined with costuming tips, performance hair & make-up techniques as well as musicality basics, you will learn a progressive group routine over the six weeks.

You will have an opportunity to perform this group routine together at the Sugar Blue Burlesque Fresh Faced Follies Graduation show.
