So you've conquered "Introduction to Burlesque" and are now beyond "Burlesque for Beginners" – now what? If you're ready to take the next step on your journey to diva-hood, this intermediate-level class is for you! Each class series will focus on a variety of burlesque techniques that take what you learned in Introduction to Burlesque to a whole new level. Students will learn more advanced moves and removes and how to develop their own burlesque style.

Down & Dirty Floorwork
Tuesdays, July 5, 12, 19, 26, 7:30-8:30pm
Instructor: Miss MIna
Price: $100
Location: Tony Williams Dance Center

In Down & Dirty we'll explore burlesque floorwork over four weeks. Students will learn how to get down to the floor and how to get back up again, classic floorwork moves, traveling, and transitions. And as long as we're down there, we'll do some stocking peels.

We'll also discuss when floorwork is appropriate and how to modify your act for when it isn't. Exercises for strengthening the core (vital for floorwork!) will be included.

We'll be spending a lot of time on the floor, so please bring a yoga mat for comfort.
