Let's dance to nurture, nourish, and celebrate our strength and inherent fabulousness! Join me for the most fun you'll ever have getting your fitness on.
We mix dance moves with isometrics, calisthenics, and stretches to enhance strength, endurance, and flexibility...Aaaand we'll just happen to do it to music by Beyoncé and other great, shake-your-ass tracks.
This is a class for ALL BODIES and ALL LEVELS of ability, rhythm & fitness. Warm-ups and cool-downs are LINE DANCE learning time! There will be moves and modification suggestions for all bodies... whether you booty bounce with your hands in the air, on your knees, on a chair, or on the floor. Invite your friend, your partner, sister, brother, mother... and let's workout!
What to Bring: A towel for your sweat, a yoga mat for your knees, and a water bottle to hydrate. I recommend a light snack, like a bar or a piece of fruit, for replenishment and brief social time after class.

-BURLESQUE & PERFORMANCE CLASSES-
I was attracted to this art form for its combination of parody, sensuality, theatricality, glamour, and of course - dance. After a decade and hundreds of shows, I love it even more.
Let me share my performance perspective with you! In this 8-week series, you'll learn the basics of burlesque - with sauntering, struts & confident swag, pauses & stillness, bumps & grinds, shimmies & shakes, tease & appeal, peels & props, and even a few of my own signature moves. We'll touch upon the history (and a few of its trailblazing teasers), how to unabashedly unleash our "woo" for an audience of 1 or 1,000 - with intention, attention & energy projection, and flirt with the debatable differences between character and persona.
Invite your unique succulence, sensuality, and sexiness out to play! No burlesque or dance experience is necessary. All levels are encouraged, from bashful beginners to seasoned stage performers; whether you just desire more connection, comfort & confidence in your own body, wish to give a private show to your lover (or yourself in the mirror), or long to convince an entire audience that they ALL could be your lovers.
Classes will be geared toward all identities wishing to explore, accentuate, and perform sensuality. ALL genders, body types, and ages (over 16) are welcome. There is no nudity or undressing in this series.
Wear comfortable clothing that you'll feel sassy moving around in. Comfortable heels are encouraged.
$120 for the Series or $20 per Walk-In
