Ever watched a burlesque show and thought “Wow! That looks like fun, I’d love to do that!” Well, now you can learn to strut your stuff in a sexy and lighthearted class atmosphere. Learn techniques of burlesque performance and get in shape while shimmying and shaking your way through fun dance routines! Whether you just want to perform in private or you can’t wait to jump on stage, you will gain confidence in yourself and in your body image, and since you will have many opportunities to perform, you can decide for yourself when and if you are ready.
GROUP PERFORMANCES: All of the group routines taught in Burlesquercise® dance classes are performed at shows around the San Francisco Bay Area. If you’re interested in performing with the Burlesqueteers, all you have to do is attend classes to learn the techniques and choreography, and then sign up when a show is coming up, get your costuming together (this is usually very easy and inexpensive and is often provided for you), come to the rehearsals, and you’re in! There is no audition process. Performing with the Burlesqueteers is all about showing up and putting in the effort. It’s a very inclusive group open to anyone who has taken the classes.
