Saturday, December 14th / 2:00-3:30pm - $25 (Open)

In this holiday-inspired burlesque workshop, you'll learn how to sizzle like a show-girl, all while mastering the moves needed to lure Santa down the chimney. Add a little sensuality, add a little sass, and add a little class. This class is for the beginner and experienced dancer alike. 

Leave your inhibitions at the door. It’s time for Burlesque with Chris. Learn how to sizzle like a showgirl in this one & a half hour class devoted to everything spectacular about being on late night stage. From the Pussy Cat Dolls to Christina Aguilera, they’ve all learned the tease. The walk. The seduction of burlesque. Now it’s your turn...  

What to Wear - Wear clothing that allows for movement and that allows the instructor to see your lines. Sorry, feather boas are not allowed, but knit boas are an option. Wear an outfit with one or two extra pieces of clothing that can be taken off. (ie: extra shirt, coat, scarf, etc. Class can be taken in jazz shoes, ballet shoes, grip socks, or similar.) For this particular class, please bring a bath robe. 

IMPORTANT — This class is for adults 18 and older. Pre-register sign ups only. Sorry, but Mix & Match pricing does not apply to this workshop. Because this series is popular and we only enroll so many before closing enrollment, we can not offer refunds for missing this class once you have signed up.
