Enjoy a bit of 'me time doing something you may have never tried before through the art of fan dance!
You may have zero aspirations to ever perform in public, or perhaps you secretly wish you had the confidence to get on a stage
Either way, this Starlets workshop will give you the freedom to embrace the beautiful and empowering art of burlesque-style fan dancing
Please note, there's no striptease or nudity but moves, where it's implied and explored, are fully embraced. The perfect pick-me-up if you feel that you deserve it. All genders (over 16) welcome
Never have I ever laughed so hard, felt so comfortable and enjoyed myself so much. Dawn has such a wicked sense of humour you cant help feel at ease immediately.
Starlet: Diva. Leading lady.
Superstar. Somebody. Aspire.
The monthly workshops are in Chichester on a Wednesday evening (why not?) at the Nuffield Gym Dance Studio in Chichester, West Sussex
This highly empowering session will contain some basic skills, with progressions plus a full routine that develops the art of tease and confidence.
With a full choreographed routine designed to gather and showcase the moves learnt during each session. There is no need to book for a course as each session is a standalone show, yet you can come back time and time again to join in the fun!
These workshops are not designed specifically for professional dancers and can be enjoyed by all ages (18+) and abilities. The objective is to uplift, develop and light a spark to make you shine like the Starlet you are!
I've been to dawn's burlesque classes for 5 years now. I'm not the most confident person in the world and Dawn has taken the time to help me develop and grow with a smile, she is a fabulous (and patient) teacher!
Whether it's preparing for stage performance or simply becasue you'd like to work on your day-to-day confidence but in a really unique way, I can work with you to achieve your individual goals. With over fourteen years experience in the entertainment world and over ten in the cabaret & burlesque industry, I've rubbed shoulders with the finest acts in the land. Previous to that, I spent many years as a sales & networking coach, working mainly with women with the aim of improving projection and confidence skills. My techniques were always quirky and so discovering burlesque as a medium to the same goal back in 2012 was a complete awakening!
