Burlesque Dancing – Introduction – Sydney Course

Did you grow up with Jazz Ballet? Are you ready to put those moves back into a fun workout, but make it more age appropriate whilst finding your inner diva? How about we throw in some Burlesque, Pilates and stretching too? Well, that’s what you’ll get from this fun, tongue in cheek Introduction to a Burlesque Dancing course!

Important Information

  • If you have any injuries, plese obtain a doctor’s clearance before attending this course.

Course Outline

Session 1 – Introduction to the Burlesque

  • The first week’s class will be about introducing ourselves and learning a bit about Burlesque and what it can do for you. We will quickly discuss what you may choose to bring to upcoming classes. Then we will do a warmup, some Pilates conditioning, some stretches, then get into some very basic introductory burlesque moves. All followed by a short cool down.

Session 2 – Walk, Bump and Grind

  • Building on the introduction class, we will quickly chat about how we felt about the first class, before following the same format to the class, except this week we will focus on walking and the famous bump and grind. You may wish to bring some dance heels, or some small heels to practice dancing in.

Session 3 – Keep Your Shirt On

  • This week’s Burlesque component will consist on dancing with a shirt. Bring an oversized button up shirt with you to class, you can pop it on over your tshirt, that’s completely fine!

Session 4 – Floor Work

  • This week’s lesson will focus on dance moves on the floor. You may prefer knee pads, or to wear clothes that cover the knees, or leg warmers.

Session 5 – Gloves

  • Glove peels! Lots of fun learning how to tease your gloves off whilst dancing. If you have any long gloves, please bring them along, otherwise there will be some available to borrow.

Session 6 – The 80’s

  • As this course is a bit of a homage to the old Jazz Ballet Classes, this week will be a bit of a throwback to the 80’s. Feel free to dress up if you wish. We will learn a leg warmer stocking peel for a bit of fun – so bring some leg warmers, or long pair of socks.

Session 7 – Revision

  • Before our final lesson, week seven will revise some of the moves we have learnt over the past six weeks. Then we will discuss what prop (Shirt, Gloves or Legwarmers) we would like to work with for a combination for our final class next week.

Session 8 – The Chair

  • After a quicker warm up and strengthening section, we will use a chair as well as our decided prop of choice to put together a short dance combination to celebrate the end of term.

Course Outcome

  • Students will learn different dance style techniques, and will gain confidence through the dance course, in a safe, fun environment.

What to Bring

  • A yoga mat
  • Towel, water bottle
  • Wear comfortable clothes that you can move around in
  • Optional: Wear Chorus, ballroom dancing or even low-heeled shoes
  • Dress up – if you desire

Prerequisite: Desirable

  • No professional dance experience required. Just basic dance and rhythm skills, and an enjoyment of dance. You don’t need a dance background to join in – just the ability to get on and off the floor.

Delivery Mode
