Lyrical Flow

Are you ready to take your burlesque to the next level?

 

In this intermediate/advanced workshop or choreographic course, international contemporary jazz dancer and burlesque icon Whisky, will prepare you for a soul searching dive into the world of slow, sensual seduction aided by the ‘lyrical jazz’ dance genre.

Please note this is an intermediate to advanced level class, aimed at students already studying the fundamentals of burlesque, striptease and/or dance. As a choreographic course, this works perfectly as a pairing with 'Slow & Sultry' as the two classes cover a range of movement choices and approach to movement, both as a method of story telling or to enhance your erotic dance.

Musicality in Burlesque

'Musicality in Burlesque' is aimed at an Intermediate to Advanced level. This aims to look at the importance of understanding music and choreography as a whole, and how these tools can take your performance to the next level. The use of group tasks and games keep it fun for both amateurs and professionals.

 

Teaching at Bird College in London, one of the most prestigious dance colleges in Europe, means that these techniques are tried and tested, and proven successful! Don’t worry amateurs! The techniques used are the same, but the movements, choreography and music choices are catered to each workshop individually. With each workshop, Whisky can very quickly identify the overall level of the participants and cater to their needs, both as as an overall group and individually.
