Welcome to All That Glitters Burlesque Academy!
We are so excited to teach you and share in this journey with you. Below is a little information about what you can expect when you come to your first class.
Classes are usually taught in sections. The movement portions of class will start with a warm up. Follow along and get your blood pumping. Don’t worry about perfecting every movement. After getting the body moving, we will work on our choreography. It’s okay if you don’t identify as a “dancer” because there are many ways to move your body to music.
We want you to be comfortable! Since this is a burlesque studio you may see instructors in crop tops and heels occasionally, but this is not required! Most students wear gym related gear or yoga, we recommend bringing a pair of tennis shoes or dance heels depending on your comfort level. If you have never danced in heels before, please bring whatever shoes you feel comfortable moving in. A teacher can help you ease your transition into heels.
Tricks and Tips for New Students:
EVERYBODY WANTS YOU TO SUCCEED! So don’t worry if you miss a step. Learning is all part of the process. Classes always get better and better the more you continue to try and never give up! We foster a supportive environment without judgement. You are safe to explore your burlesque side with us.
Sometimes beginners feel frustrated that they didn’t hit all the marks. Don’t let this get you down! Even veterans can take time understanding dance moves. Our Headmistress, Holly Dai, will tell you that she still has to ask questions about which direction she’s supposed to turn and that for her, routines don’t always sink it till the 10th try.
Your teacher wants you to succeed. They might offer tips and suggestions and push you to get it right. This is all done in an effort to help you along your journey to the burlesque stage.
