About Flirting with BurlesqueBeginners Welcome! This class has a focus on women's experience in their bodies, but all genders are welcome if they intend to participate fully and with respect for each other. No observers.
Learn sexy burlesque moves including bumps, grinds, shimmies, and chair dancing, along with hip, shoulder, and other body isolations that will tone your torso. You'll find and firm muscles you may not have known you had and you'll have fun, too! Content of classes will vary. PLUS, learn a routine you can perform in our Student Showcase, or take the class just for fun!
Your level of commitment is entirely up to you. You take the class one time for a taste of burlesque, or you can take it multiple times during the month to memorize the routine and have the opportunity to be invited to perform in a group number at one of our student showcases! Each calendar month will feature a different routine.
Students Gush about FwB!

About Our Instructors
Jezebel Express by Don Spiro.
"My focus is on burlesque moves that make you look great (no matter what size or shape you are!) You don't need years of dance training to look super sexy... you just need to know how to work what you've got. I teach easy-to-remember steps and tricks that will give you extra va-voom onstage or in the bedroom. The class will end with a short dance routine suitable for beginners, so wear clothes to move in. This class can be taken barefoot, in high heels, or in sneakers."

"My focus is on giving students a mini foundation of performance tools relating to burlesque. Here is what they will learn; eye contact, finding your light on stage, posture as a dancer, walking in high heels and strengthening your feet and core to support walking in high heels, character creation, floor work and body isolation's in preparation for tassel twirling, bumping and grinding. There is 20 minutes of burlesque related warm up, so bring something you can move in, preferably stretch pants/tights or something form fitting so you can see your posture, feet and curves! You will sweat a little bit! Having graduated with a focus in theater direction and 5 years as a burlesque performer/producer I have the tools to give students practical stage technique and confidence to further their burlesque education."
