Sensu’Elle is delighted to announce her 6 week Burlesque classes begin on Wednesday 15th May 2013. With almost four years experience working as a Burlesque Performer and two years experience teaching with The Kitty Kat Cabaret Club, she invites ladies to join her, regardless of age or experience, to share hints, tips and tassels in the art of Burlesque.
Whether you have aspirations of becoming a Burlesque performer, or would simply like to attend the course for pleasure, we will be looking at the various styles of Burlesque, its history and place in popular culture today. You will learn some techniques in the art of the strip tease to enable you to feel more confident and feminine that you may put into practise during your everyday life….look out Sainsbury’s!!
Beginners Class 7.30-8.30pm
No experience is necessary to join the beginner’s class.
During this class we will be looking at the importance of posture and poise whilst walking, standing and sitting. You will enjoy the opportunity of playing with feather boas and learning to tease with evening glove removal. We will also be looking at the art of removing ‘outer’ layers of clothing and the use of hats in a Burlesque routine. Towards the end of the course you will have learnt a basic Burlesque routine and have some useful tools to take away with you to create some magical routines by yourself.
Advanced Class 9-10pm
You must have attended a beginner’s class taught by Sensu’Elle so that you will have covered some of the basic elements of strip-tease before moving forward to the advanced.
With your understanding of the core elements of a performance routine, we will be moving on to explore the numerous uses of props in routines including fans, umbrellas, chairs and canes before familiarizing ourselves with the many ways of peeling off those stockings, corsets and bras for those that feel confident and ready to do so! By the end of this course you will have the main ingredients and inspiration to create your very own routines and will have the opportunity of working with your class or with Sensu’Elle alone to finish and refine your acts ready for ‘Showtime’!
Following the six week course is a Student Show where there will be an opportunity to make your Burlesque debut’s and showcase your routines for those that feel ready to do so.
