CLASS: The Art of the Tease Burlesque Dance
Friday, October 12, 8:30 pm
Please join us for a very spooky edition of our classic burlesque class. We'll be getting ready for Halloween, and teaching you plenty of tricks *and* treats!
Brew City Bombshells Sugar St. Clair and Polly Amour will introduce some of the classic burlesque moves and teach a short routine. Then the group will practice and perfect the routine, incorporating struts, glove peels and feather boa work. Every one who participates in this class will also be invited (but not required!) to perform a group number live on stage with the Brew City Bombshells one week later!
This class is open to people of all genders, orientations, body types and ages (over 18, please). Please bring a bottle of water, wear comfortable clothes and bring a set of heels. Don't worry -- everyone's clothes will stay on during this class.
The Tool Shed has been a proud sponsor of the Brew City Bombshells since the beginning of the troupe. We're excited to have two of the Bombshells' very own stars present this fun and exciting burlesque dancing class.
Sugar St. Clair joined the Brew City Bombshells in 2009. She has been a full time member of the troupe since then, and is also a member of the Miltown Kings. She's dedicated to the Milwaukee queer art scene and plans to keep on dancing for a very long time.
Polly Amour has been doing burlesque with the Brew City Bombshells since 2010. Since then she has started her own burlesque theater troupe that focuses on geek themed burlesque, Dainty Rogue Productions. She strongly believes that burlesque is an art for people of any size, gender, and ability and tries to bring that awareness to the performer community with her sass and ass.$25 per person.
