Starts 9 January
6 - week course, 6 x 1 hour sessions over six weeks.
If you have never picked up a pair of fans before or perhaps you have done previous workshops or have your own fans, this 6 week course is for you.
If you have your own pair of fans to use in the course, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, as the course will be $150 to book in, as opposed to the normal course fee of $170 which includes the use of Sugar Blue Burlesque fans throughout the course.
We will teach you some techniques and style involved in fan dancing such as classic poses with the fans, dancing and movement, the art of tease with the fans and popular flourishes.
By the end of the 6 week course, you will learn a group choreography with the fans. You will have the opportunity to perform the routine at a Sugar Blue Burlesque show.
The fans which will be used in this course are all new tulle feather fans created by Sugar Blue Burlesque owner A'dora Derriere. No real feathers used.
Easy to move in clothing, but not too loose as the fans may get caught in big flowing skirts and shirts, etc. You may also be doing some floor work, so wear appropriate bottoms, as you legs may end up in the air. You can wear comfortable heels or flats. Please bring a bottle of water.
Please note that if you do want to participate in the optional grad show performance at the end of the course, there will be additional costs/sourcing involved in purchase of costume items and presentation, which will talked about in week 1.
This course is for all genders, 18yrs +.
No experience whatsoever is needed.
*People with disabilities are welcome to bring along a support worker if needed.
*All dance teachers are happy to adjust dance moves as needed to accommodate people with disabilities.
$170.00 per course (including GST)
