All levels are welcome but please be aware that the movement in Floorwork can be physically demanding. Students should be able to get up and down from the floor. Knee pads are welcome.

Hair & Chair is an intro to cabaret style dance and combines cabaret's theatricality with the sensuality of burlesque. This is an energetic class full of hairography and hip rolls! A chair will be provided to each student to be incorporated into the movement by the instructor for the majority of class. Each class will begin with a warm-up then the instructor will teach a dance combo that includes plenty of hair whips, chair tricks and sultry movement. All levels are welcome but please be aware that some of the movement in Hair & Chair is quickly paced. Come explore the entertainer in you!
For those looking for an edgier style of burlesque taught to modern music. This style of burlesque will feel more rock and roll compared to the classic style!
