Event description

Description

We will learn choreography for "Wicked Stage" Part 1-- celebrating the flirtatious, frivolous stylings of flapper chorus girls in a jazz-age era group routine!

MUSIC: "Life Upon The Wicked Stage" by Blossom Dearie (short edit)

*** SPECIAL CRASH COURSE SERIES! ***

SPECIAL CRASH COURSE SERIES! In 5 weeks, we will learn, refine, and at the end, PERFORM! This is a very short routine (less than 2 minutes long) with simple costuming, so we are confident that you can learn it and be ready for the stage in just over a month's time!

Images shown are to give you an idea of the "feel" of the character. Costuming requirements and resources will be given in class.

* PERFORMANCE DATES *

Thursday, FEBRUARY 6, 2020 - The Garter Room 5-Year Anniversary "Gatsby Wonderland" show
Friday, FEBRUARY 14, 2020 - Fishnet Follies Pre-Show at Hubba Hubba Revue

NOTE: Performance is not required nor guaranteed, but by mutual agreement between instructor & dancer.

... ... ...

Harkening back to the charm schools of the 1950′s, we will begin each class with mild stretches and “drills” on posture, poise, and persona-- and some core work! You'll also be provided with video tutorials and other online reference materials to enhance our studio work.

Open to all shapes, sizes and backgrounds, 18 years and older. No prior dance experience necessary!

Led by Mynx d’Meanor
Choreography by Mynx d'Meanor & Lulu Bon Coup
