Ideally, you have taken Burlesque Basics to become familiar with burlesque basics. It is an introduction to the movement skills used in jazz dance. It includes the use of dynamics in rhythm, sustained and percussive tension, and dramatic focus unique to jazz and burlesque. This is a chorus/ensemble dance-only series that focuses on group dance routines. You will learn to evaluate movement skills in terms of space, time, and force and reproduce accurately through the movement of your own body. Please be mindful of your attendance at all classes. Your attendance is essential for the group dance choreography.
