Apr 13 - Jun 8 // Saturdays 12:30-3pm

Discover the "art of the tease" as you explore the power, confidence and creativity of performing Neo-Burlesque! Learn the tools and techniques specific to this genre as we engage in burlesque style movement and get you in touch with your inner-sexy. This course is an introduction to burlesque, and will include group exercises, instruction in the methods and theory of what makes up burlesque, along with generative techniques for exploring characterization and self-expression onstage. You’ll participate in make-up and costuming workshops, gain knowledge of the rich history of burlesque and get an introduction to the Seattle burlesque scene, plus a set of gloves, stockings and eyelashes to keep. This class is perfect for those who have always wanted to try burlesque, but aren’t quite ready to commit to creating a solo act just yet, and an excellent foundation for those who want to grow into the full generation of a persona & act in the future.  (Watch Freehold Fall class schedule for a possible Advanced level class with Cherry coming soon). There will be a group showing recital on the final day of class so you can invite friends and family to observe some of class and choreographed group exercises. No nudity or previous dance training required. All genders are welcome!
