Burlesque 101 - Bump & Grind then Shimmy & Shake with Doctor Vu as she teaches the basics of Burlesque dance. This teaser class uncovers the base movement textures we associate with classic Burlesque style dance in a fun and welcoming environment. Learn bumps, grinds, shimmies, and other classic moves before applying your new or refreshed skills in a choreographed dance. This class is geared for the individual who has an interest in Burlesque movement or those seasoned performers wanting to take a refresher. No experience is necessary. It is recommended to bring a pair of long gloves to class if you have them. Dress in clothes that allow you to move (think yoga or workout).
