Burly Moves is a seductively wonderful dance class by the burlesque artist Goldie Starlett. In this class you get to move to the rhythm of the music, enjoy the joy of dancing and experience the best thing in the world - burlesque!
In the course you adopt a burlesque attitude, boldly create an atmosphere of the individual charm of your own body and movement, and enjoy uninhibited feminine movement language and sensual gestures, diving into the enchanting world of burlesque. During the course, you'll learn classical burlesque dance technique and a wonderfully seductive choreography.
The course is suitable for you if you have basic functional ability and a little body control (you can go to the floor on your knees in the middle of the dance, etc.) and you have danced at least some type of dance style before or even danced on a night club table. People with no dance skills, no sense of rhythm, and first-timers are also welcome if they have a different background in sports. Experience with burlesque-based dances or an art hobby is not necessary. Even experienced burlesque dancers are warmly welcome. Although the course is so-called no-level class, i.e. it is suitable for dancers of many levels, the progress during this course is a little faster than in "very beginner courses".
With this course, you can perform if you want, because IMPI has parties several times a year! During the course, the group piece will be rehearsed for performance. If performing doesn't appeal to you, don't worry: in these classes you can dance for your own pleasure, even if some of the group would decide to perform. In order to perform, you must commit to rehearse the choreography at home also between classes.
No undressing during classes. You can dance with socks or heels, soft-soled indoor dance shoes and in comfortable clothes that allow you to move. You need a water bottle with you, and if you have soft knee pads suitable for dancing, take them with you (knee pads can also be bought at IMPI Studio).
Age limit 16 years. Suitable for everyone regardless of background, gender and body size or shape. No upper age limit for participation.
