Burlesque class (Teaser weeks 3-5)

I had intended to write a full review of the venue for the classes but I think the content is of more interest. The classes are centrally located in Cuba mall, great if you want to grab dinner before or after. The venue itself leaves a lot to be desired; it has creaky wooden floors, wonky stairs, dingy bathroom etc etc. Not at all glamourous as you would expect from this sort of class. I just hope the rooms get renovated soon, even the Wellington Performing Arts Room have finally been done, surely Tarrant Stuidos can't afford to be left behind.

Here is a recap of what the class has been learning:
Week three - gloves. Who knew that long gloves could look so elegant but be so dirty? Moves include the trumbone and necktie. Tip: pull the fingers out a little so you the gloves don't get caught and you don't end up biting your finger!
Week four - cheesecake / good girl / dolly routine. So sugary sweet your teeth will hurt, and your face from smiling so much. Track: Honey
Week five - vixen / bad girl / bombshell routine. Track: I Put a Spell on You
Week six (upcoming) - removal of clothes other than gloves involved (gasp!), some costume required - what a way to end the class!

Miss la Belle has a graduation performance coming up in October for her level 2 class. Unfortuantely anyone wanting to attend a level 2 class will need to wait till next year. But for all of you who have yet to find the courage or time to attend a level 1 class next term (starting 11 October) Miss la Belle will be offering two classes! One at 6pm and one at 7pm, that means more people can attend. Check it out here.

Anything else you'd like to know? Just ask!

Check out reviews for week onetwo and six.
