INTRO TO BURLESQUE: SOLO STRIPTEASE (LEVEL 1)

In this 4-week series, we will learn the fundamental concepts of classic burlesque movement and dance, while getting you started on the building blocks of crafting solos from your own unique dance (and non-dance) experiences. We'll explore the notions of "feminine" vs "masculine" presentation, and also learn an abbreviated group dance routine so you can immediately put these basics to work!

1. Poise, posture and persona (poses, owning space, performance charm)

2. Dynamic presentation (entrances & exits, small vs. big moves)

3. Undress with finesse (practical striptease fundamentals)

4. Putting it all together (burlesque mini act rough drafts, improvisation activities)

* Includes access to private student website for additional resources, video tutorials, and more!

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

Led by Mynx d’Meanor.

UP NEXT:
Level 2 (Building a Burlesque Solo Act) - FEB
Level 3 (Private 1-on-1 Coaching with Mynx d'Meanor) - MAR

Performance Opportunities:

- Hubba Hubba Revue Pre-Show - Various dates, by invitation from Mynx d'Meanor


NOTES/FAQ:

* You do not have to have a solo act idea before taking this session. That’s what these classes are for– learning/practicing the fundamental building blocks of burlesque to give you a taste and get you started on your journey as a soloist!
* Much of what we learn and practice in this class can be applied to everyday life--“all the world’s a stage”, after all! Give yourself an extra kick to pepper through your 9-to-5 days. Also fun for anyone who just wants to dabble in burlesque without feeling bound by fitting into group dance routines.
* For those more seriously pursuing solo burlesque side-careers: Level 1 leads right into Level 2, which delves deeper into the process of creating your own unique acts (see Level 2 description). After that, Level 3 gives you an opportunity for 1-on-1 coaching/mentoring to fully refine and polish your act(s), along with leads on how to book your latest creation.
