Forever HAIR!

About this Class

In researching proper ways to implement “Hair-Eography” or “Hair Choreography” Darlinda discovered some fun and exciting tips to add sensual and entertaining hair moves to your burlesque routine! In this hair choreography class you will learn proper neck warm-ups, posture for preventing injury, different hair moves for different genres (sensual boudoir, heavy metal headbang, crazy funny hairy, etc.) and how to do these moves with wigs! Bring the hair on your head or a wig that you work with often, clothes you can dance in, and your sense of adventure because it’s going to get hairy!

See Darlinda fling her hair in this gorgeous, erotic dance:
