Can Can Kick It with Ariel Helvetica

Can Can Kick It!
Did you know "Can Can" means scandal in French? This high-energy dance originated in the working class ballrooms of Paris and eventually became a highly choreographed routine lasting 10 minutes or more. In Ariel's "Can Can Kick It" class you will learn the suggestive, provocative and high kicking dance move that was once considered "shocking". Come learn from professional high-kicker Ariel Helvetica who has performed the Can Can on stages in France and around the world. This class is for all levels, and is perfect for those looking to increase flexibility and strength.

ABOUT ARIEL HELVETICA

Ariel Helvetica has been stamping her unique font all over the Vancouver Burlesque scene since her October 2011 solo debut. A born and raised dancer, Ariel spent 5 years abroad, wowing audiences in France as a professional Can-Can/Showgirl, and then  criss-crossing the globe and criss-crossing her long legs as a professional high-kicker on cruise ships, visiting 45 countries along the way.
 Growing up and training to be a serious dancer, Ms. Helveticas natural talent and drive took her far into the realm of traditional dance and ballet. But her love of performing, musicals, show tunes and, above all else, dancing to the beat of her own drum, hinted she would eventually leave those constricting toe shoes behind for bigger - and higher -  kicks. Sure enough, Ariels raw sense of creativity and passion soon pulled her towards the hot red lights of burlesque, where she finally gave in to temptation, biting the apple of this delightful art form. Ariel is a proud member of Pandora & the Locksmiths- a dynamic collective of professional singers, dancers, striptease artists and musicians.  You can also find this kinky kicker working her magic across local stages in her city at the Orchid Club, Go Go Bungalow at the Shameful Tiki Room, Nightmare Before Nutcracker and many, many more!   Ariel has performed at the Vancouver International Burlesque Festival, Southwest Burlesque Showcase in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the Edmonton Burlesque Festival, the International Stockholm Burlesque Festival and world renowned New Orleans Burlesque Festival where she competed for the coveted title of Queen of Burlesque in 2015.  In 2016 Ariel also headed south to sin city to compete for Miss Viva Las Vegas.  Ms. Helvetica is a  teacher at the Vancouver Burlesque Centre and has also brought her Can Can expertise to BurlyCon Burlesque Arts Convention in Seattle, Washington.
