Term 4: July/August 2021

We are so excited to announce our fourth term for 2021! You’ll find classes to suit all levels of experience and optional performance outcomes including filming in the studio and a live performance at The Bombshells Ball on August 7th!

A note on presenting classes and shows in a post-Covid world:

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 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.

  • 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.

We are acutely aware that our new normal means that plans are now always subject to change and we ask you to trust that we will do our best to deliver content in a way that maintains the spirit of the Academy while keeping you all safe.  When government restrictions are put in place, updated or changed, often at the last minute, we will continue to adapt and go above and beyond to continue our course work.  We understand that these changes are not to everyone’s liking, however it’s very much out of our hands.  To address this, we have had to add the following to our Terms & Conditions which you agree to on signing up to a class:

  • If government restrictions require that classes are delivered online, masks are to be worn or similar, refunds, credits or transfers will not be granted.

  • If performance opportunities cannot proceed, we will change to a filmed outcome.  Refunds, credits or transfers will not be granted to class bookings if performance outcomes change.

  • If the location or date of filmed outcomes has to be changed due to restrictions, refunds, credits or transfers will not be granted.

We are a small collective of artists adapting in order to survive during a global pandemic.  We thank you for your patience and understanding.

CLASS LEVEL OVERVIEW

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.
