Go-to Choreo

Learn some basic building blocks for choreography that you can adapt and fit into almost any classic BurlyQ peice.  These snippets are fun to learn, fun to drill and a great go-to when you are buliding a dance style choreography.  Each piece will focus on a few dancerly strengths that will enhance your dance and movement capabilities and get you thinking about clean technique.

Class will include:

  • 3-5 short snippets of choreography
  • choregraphed for classic burlesque music
  • with ideas for simplificiation or enhanced stylings
  • pointers on what the choregraphy teaches/highlights

At the end of class we'll play with chaining these bits together into numbers and mixing and matching the music to get a different vibe.

Students should bring shoes they can dance in and clothing that enables enthusiastic dance.  Prepare to sweat!
