IN YOUR FEELINGS

W/MISS KITTY OAKS

60 MIN

Join Miss Kitty Oaks for a workshop that weaves together contemporary dance and the art of the tease.

Contemporary is an expressive style of dance that incorporates ballet, lyrical, jazz, and modern techniques. It is also a style marked by emotionally charged performance. "In Your Feelings" integrates burlesque with this emotive style of dance. You will learn emotional access exercises and expressive choreography. Let's leave it all on the dance floor, shall we?

FAN DANCE CHOREOGRAPHY

W/MISS KITTY OAKS


Build on the basics from Fan Dance Fundamentals and learn a feather fan group dance! Choreography will rely primarily on the use of feather fans and will incorporate more advanced dance movement than the Fundamentals class. If you do not already own a pair of feather fans you can still practice this choreography using alternative fans options: hand fans, 'thwoorp' fans, cardboard cut outs, etc.

Please wear comfortable, form fitting clothes you can move in and shoes you may wear while fan dancing (heels, ballet shoes, barefoot, etc).

HEELS DANCE CLASS

W/MISS KITTY OAKS 

Whether you rock biscuit baskets or sky high stilettos this class will teach you how to dance in your favorite pair of heels. Warm up includes core and ankle conditioning as well as tips about supporting healthy feet / ankles so you can keep dancing for many years to come. You will learn a chunk of choreography made for dancing in heels then perform it in groups with the chance to add your own flavor.

▽▽▽

Please wear heels you can move wearing. If you are unsteady in your stilettos, start with a pair of heels that are no more than 2".
