Chair Dancing with Lola van Ella*
Saturday, Feb 23
It’s time to get sexy. Using a chair as a prop has been utilized in burlesque and exotic dancing for years, and for good reason. Join Lola for a workshop in exotic, sultry and sexy moves all involved around one of the most well loved and readily available props around. We will spend 90 minutes learning an arsenal of tried and true sultry moves that can be used to great effect on stage or in the bedroom. We will work that chair like a hot lover and discover all kinds of fun and tantalizing moves on top of, below, behind and all over that chair. By the end of our time, we will also learn a ready to perform, choreographed routine to take home.
*Please bring a pair of heels to dance in and wear form fitting clothing that you can move easily in. Dress to move but also feel cute! Yoga pants, leotards, leggings, and short shorts are all great.
"Confidence in Character through Physicality" with Sammich the Tramp
Saturday, Feb 23
This movement based class with professional physical theater specialist Sammich the Tramp (Kyla Webb) is open to performers and non-performers alike. Students will work to physically "tell a story" through specificity in their movement, expression and actions, will build physical characters through a series of group exercises, and will work on short scenes. Whether a dancer wanting to create more impactful performances, an actor looking to broaden their horizons or anyone wanting to build confidence, this class will be very beneficial and a whole lot of fun. Students should dress to move and wear comfortable shoes.
