How do you shine? It’s all about confidence! In our Burlesque Jazz class, we’re all about helping you feel comfortable, sexy, and confident!

If you have no idea what burlesque is other than what was portrayed in the fabulous Cher and Christina Aguilera movie Burlesque, we’ve got you! Our burlesque class taught by the fun and knowledgeable Andrea is a lot of jazz and a little bit hip hop, but with a lot more sass. We start the class with a warmup where all you have to do is follow along. Dynamic stretches, simple steps, and isolations get your mind and body ready to dance. Next, we work on short combinations of moves—think two or three dance steps in a row—to start building memory, dexterity, and confidence. Finally, we bring out your inner diva as we work on an easy, fun choreography set to music.
