Burlesque is traditionally a theatrical performance of a satirical nature. The word is derived from the Italian word, ‘Burla’ which is translated to ‘Joke’. During the 1920’s (the Burlesque ‘Golden Era’) Burlesque performances began to incorporate striptease and embrace ‘Classic’ style feather head-dresses, elaborate costuming, fans and props. After the 1960’s, Burlesque began to adopt what we call a ‘Neo’ style, which is actually more reflective of its satirical roots. Nowadays, there are many different styles within the Burlesque genre. From comedic performances, political statements, drag, classic, gorelesque to modern-day strip - Burlesque is vast with possibility.
At Sky Sirens, our levelled classes (Babydoll, Garnets and Feather Fan classes) incorporate a more ‘Classic’ burlesque style reflective of the Golden Era of Burlesque. However our other Burlesque classes offer a variety of styles for students to experience. If you’re a newbie to the genre, it’s best to start with the Babydoll classes to learn the foundation moves before moving onto more specialised styles.
Each video is approximately seven to ten minutes in length, and covers an in depth explanation of tricks and tips for a Baby Burlesque performer. There are no routines taught in these videos, they are tutorials. This is not a live tutorial, which means you can complete it anytime, with unlimited access!
Who can participate in this video pack?
This video pack is open to all experience levels. It’s suitable for absolute beginners and those with previous dance experience who would like to learn a new dance style.
What do I wear?
Wear comfortable clothes that you can move in - feel free to dress the part with fringing or lingerie! You can wear dance heels and/or a pair of socks as bare feet will create too much friction.
