NEW Beginner Burlesque Workshop – Chester

Presented by Candy & Chrome, with Guest Instructor Lola Lashes

Learn the ‘Art Of Tease’ and have some fun just fully embracing being a vibrant, confident, sensual WOMAN with us in this 2 hour Easter themed workshop.

Pre-Requisites:  None whatsoever.  Anyone can try this class.


WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:

A fully choreographed, sexy Burlesque routine, designed to engage and excite your audience!  This routine has been choreographed with the intention for you to later perform it for your special someone.

During your Easter routine, the instructor will teach you:

To walk with power, prowess and confidence
Poses that command attention and show off your form
Chair work that that will engage and tantalize your viewer
Sexy shoe removal
Classic Burlesque, playful stocking removal
Sensual garment removal, prop work and how to perfectly execute ‘The Big Reveal’!

Use of props will be offered to incorporate into your routine, but it is not essential that you do, sometimes simple is best!  And as Candy & Chrome standard, you will have plenty of freedom, suggestions and support for personalisation, and expressing yourself.  Tailor it YOUR WAY!

WHAT TO BRING:

For this workshop you will need:

BUNNY EARS & TAIL SET – It’s Easter after all, and the theme is ‘Hunny Bunny’.  Ear & tail sets are currently around the £3-£6 mark in just about any shop or online store.  Ebay is always a winner.
A LARGE CARROT – For prop work!
SHOES – Something easy to walk in, and easy to slip off!  So no buckles or straps to faff with!
STOCKINGS – Hold-up’s or Suspenders – choose your weapon!
LBD – (Little Black Dress) Something slinky, sexy and easy to slip out of!  Ideally a silk slip night dress would be perfect (Primark have really nice ones at a very reasonable price right now!), or something halter neck perhaps?
UNDER ARMOUR – A corset is fine if your a seasoned expert, but otherwise you may prefer a sexy matching two piece, a body suit, or something even more fruity… if you dare!

**Upon completing your payment (booking) you are agreeing with the Terms & Conditions set out here.**

About The Course…

WEEK 1 – BRING HEELS!

Can’t walk in heels?
No problem – Week 1 is all about the strut! How to walk into a room and command attention! Various walks and poses will be covered, as well as basic moves, signature moves, and chair prop work!

If you’ve done this before, we will recap, hone your skills and style out a new walks and poses that reflect your Christmas character or personality!

In this session, we will discuss props, poses, and outfits ready for next week.

You’ll also learn a little about the history of Burlesque and be given research pointers.

What parts of you do you want to showcase? How do you want to look? Who is your audience? Who is your character and what is she like?

 

WEEK 2 – Santa Baby!

It’s time to start your routine! We are working with Santa Baby by Ertha Kitt, to help bring the seasonal sensuality out of you!

You will follow a classic Burlesque routine involving the chair of course, which will be tailored further down the line with your own individual choices of garment removal, props etc… based on your chosen personality and style.

Will you go for tinsel titties? Mistletoe kisses? Red crushed velvet and white fur trims? Red and white striped stockings? A full sized candy cane? Christmas champagne? Are you an Elf? Or a prancing Reindeer? Have you been nice? Or are you on Santa’s naughty list?!

Everything plays a role in your own personal routine so have a good think about what you’d like to use, how you’d like to use it and what makes sense.

If you’ve done a course with us before, remember what you learned and incorporate as much as you can!

 

WEEK 3 – BRING YOUR OUTFIT

In this session, you will complete your routine, master garment removal, do more character work and fully test drive the props and outfits to make sure they are easy enough to carry and remove etc… taking out anything that isn’t working for you and tweaking bits until you look AND feel nothing less than FABULOUS!

If you’ve done a course with us before, as a confidence exercise we will briefly perform your routines for the newbies, as well as have some brief confidence coaching.

 

WEEK 4 – THE FINALE!

In the last session, you will finish and practise the full routine, perform it and we will record you (for your own personal use!).

But are you bold enough to practise it at home and perform it for someone special?

Do let us know!

Burlesque is BACK!
