Burlesque Dancing

Burlesque dancing is fun and builds confidence. Made famous by Dita Von Teese and Immodesty Blaize (as seen on Channel 4's Faking It).

It has all the sexiness of a striptease WITHOUT the strip. These classes are aimed at beginners and there is absolutely no nudity in these classes - you'll learn how to remove gloves and stockings but that's about it!

These lessons can help to improve posture and loosen lower back muscles.

What will I learn?

After a few lessons you'll learn
  • how to pose to create pretty shapes with your body as well as using facial expressions. Learn to create definate yet soft movements while still teasing (think 1950's cheesecake icons).
  • how to take a glove off - then put it to music
  • the sexy shimmy
  • how to put all of this together in a burlesque dance using feather boas
  • a chair dance - on, off, and around it (think caberet). These will improve your strength and co ordination.

Remember while you're doing this - you're burning calories!!
Don't worry you don't have to be a great dancer. It's all about feeling fabulous and glamourous.
 Don't worry - you can wear whatever you feel comfortable in, it can be shorts, skirt, trousers etc. I would suggest you wear heels if possible.

What do the Burlesque sessions cost and where are they?

Private individual lessons Come on your own or bring a friend. The Burlesque sessions are 30 minutes long and cost just £12 -first lesson £10 (£5 each if you come with a friend).

The Burlesque sessions take place in Corfe Mullen which is in Wimborne, Dorset, 7 days a week at your convenience - before work or after work or on your day off! 7am - 9 pm.
We use great music (including the famous stripper music),have a lot of fun and you'll leave feeling much more confident about yourself.

What should I wear?

You'll need to wear high heels in order to get the posture right - you'll learn how to wiggle your hips and stick out your bottom. If you want to wear a skirt or even a corset to the lesson that's fine. If you'd prefer to wear trousers/leggings with your heels and a t-shirt that's fine too!!
