8 WEEK BEGINNERS BURLESQUE COURSE - First Class 4/14/16
Hourglass After Dark's Burlesque classes are for ladies and gents of any age, shape or ability. Lose your inhibitions. Learn to be confident, feel sexy and glamorous and to love the skin you’re in. Have fun, meet like-minded women and add some sparkle to your life!
Our teacher is the beautiful Jessabell Darlin'!
Jessabell started her burlesque career 3 years ago. She joined Professor Whiskey in 2012 as a hoop dancer, singer and all around vaudeville vixen. One year later she made her burlesque debut and has been entertaining audiences all over Florida with her multifaceted routines. She is also the current Miss Burlesque America for Pin Up America Magazine.
Inspired by the showgirls of the Golden Age of Burlesque (1930's-1950's) as well as modern neo-burlesque artists, Hourglass After Dark's classes are suitable for all who want to explore their own sexuality in a fun, friendly, safe and non-judgmental environment. We aim to promote confidence in body and creativity whilst enabling people to develop grace and poise.
Discover the art of the tease: Learn how to engage with your audience, how to pose like a pin-up, how to strut your stuff with confidence (in heels!) and how to bump'n'grind like Bettie Page! Have fun with props and costumes and learn a fabulous group routine at the end of the course.
Suitable for those who want to perform as well as those who don't. No previous dance experience necessary and those with 2 left feet are more than welcome! There is NO nudity involved in this course and you can wear whatever you feel good in.
(There will be an opportunity to continue to an Intermediate Course for those who wish to do so after the Beginners' Course.)
