Shake Shake Shake Senora  The Art of Great Shimmies with Hank E Panky (12pm)

In conjunction with light aerobics and movement, you will go through different isolation exercises to get you to hone your shimmy talents. You will do strengthening exercises for your shoulders, chest, back, and hips to get you on that stage wowing people with a newfound confidence in your whiles, whatever they may be!

Dirty Moves! - Burlesque Dance with Dirty Martini (2:00pm)

Join Classically trained dancer Miss Dirty Martini as she breaks down the basics of burlesque dance for dancers of all levels. Perfect for those students who have not experienced a movement class before, Miss Martini introduces the classical dance class structure in a friendly and positive atmosphere to get anyone ready for their first or five hundredth turn around a stage. Class starts with a warm up emphasizing movement based in jazz, ballet and Middle Eastern dance techniques that strengthen the abdominal core and help to promote an economy of movement within the body. Proper alignment and coordination is the focus while students learn how to shake what theyve got and carry it with pride. The class progresses with exercises developed to enhance proper deportment and stage presence enhancing each persons individuality. The building blocks of burlesque choreography are emphasized while students learn a short routine to Miss Martinis striptease music favorites.
