1.5 hour workshop with Australian Burlesque superstar Jazida!
In the late 1800s, a troupe called "Little Egypt" came to America and regularly performed at the World Fair in Chicago and this had a big impact on the future of bellydancing in America. These same dancers had an interesting impact on the future of burlesque and saw the birth of hoochie coochie dancing which later evolved into the bump and grind.
In this workshop, we'll learn a burlesque style choreography through a bellydance lens and explore defining the difference between belly dance and burlesque.
Jazida has dancing bellydance since 2009, performs at Turkish restaurants round Canberra. Outside of bellydancing, Jazida is a celebrated burlesque performer who has won multiple awards and accolades.
