About the Instructor: He's the sweet and charming Johnny - also known as the "Asian Invasion" of burlesque... and if you think you like his crouching tiger, just wait until you see his hidden dragon! Bazuka has headlined as a soloist and with the Johnnies throughout the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and soon Europe and Japan.
Trained in contemporary dance, theater, and vault staff, he creates nostalgic, witty, and lively acts that are immediately accessible to every audience. With a retro-masculine, 'boy-next-door' persona, Bazuka takes everyday fantasy and childhood memories as inspiration for his repertoire. Bazuka Joe is also a seasoned teacher and instructor with more than ten years of experience as a professional choreographer and teacher.
