Let's get physical! Shake your groove thang! Shut up and dance with me! "Jazz Dance for Burlesque" is a fast, fun, dance class that builds on the concepts of a basic jazz dance class, but gives the next step up focusing on technique, stage performance, and adds in elements of burlesque vocabulary. Dancers will actively participate in stretching exercises, a choreographed warm-up, strength and core work, learn a final combination and will be expected to create a short set of their own choreography as a part of a group exercise. Jazz Dance for Burlesque is open to performers of all levels, but is geared towards beginner and intermediate performers. Drop-ins are welcome! Dancers should come prepared to move, wearing dance appropriate clothing and flexible footwear.
