Term 6: October/November 2020

We are so excited to announce our final term for 2020! You’ll find classes to suit all levels of experience with a very exciting performance opportunity available for every class!   We’re also thrilled be able to add to our popular Friday night classes – the perfect excuse to catch up with friends each week, followed by a glass of bubbly at Brisbane Powerhouse!

 

To keep you all safe, we’ve adopted a number of measures in the studio that you’ll see reflected in our timetable as well as reducing class sizes overall. To maintain a healthy environment please help us by:

  • Waiting in your car or in the courtyard until the time of your class.  No one will be able to congregate in the foyer before or after class

  • Take note of the staggered class times – only one class is permitted to be in the studio at a time.  We will completely empty the studio before swapping over classes.  Please be patient and wait for your tutor to call your class in and don’t crowd your fellow students.

  • On arrival, you may be asked to scan in via a QR code on your phone.  Please ensure you follow this process if requested.

  • Please be mindful of where you place your bags.  Use the perimeter of the whole studio to place your things so we can be suitably distanced at all times.

  • Please do not share costumes, water bottles, props or shoes during this time.

  • Our motto is “Get in, dance, get out”.  Please do not congregate or chat in close groups in or around the studio.

  • If you are displaying any cold and flu symptoms including but not limited to fever, sore throat or cough, please do not come to class.

  • If you have been overseas or in contact with anyone returning from overseas within 14 days, please do not come to class.

  • If you have visited a designated COVID19 Hotspot or in contact with anyone returning from a designated COVID19 hotspot within 14 days, please do not come to class.

Thank you so much for your ongoing support and understanding while we navigate the unknown.

CLASS LEVEL OVERVIEW

BEGINNER: For those who are new to burlesque or want to polish their skills. 

We recommend that all students start with a dedicated beginner class to learn the history and essential moves of burlesque. If you have a dance or performance background, one or two terms of beginner may suffice, though you’re welcome to take as many beginner classes as you choose as the routines change each term.

OPEN/ALL LEVELS: Suited to absolutely everyone! Once you’re comfortable with your skills learnt in Beginner classes, move to Open classes to try new styles and develop further. If a Beginner class doesn’t suit your schedule, start with an Open class.

INTERMEDIATE: Suited to those with 2+ years of Burlesque experience and/or dance training in modern styles.

ADVANCED: Suited to those with 3+ years of Burlesque experience and/or significant, recent dance training in modern styles.
