Term 2 2020 Class Details

The Bombshell Burlesque Academy’s second term for 2020 is an incredibly special one as we are celebrating 10 years of Bombshells in March!  Last year our students were asked to vote on their favourite routines and you’ll see the results in our timetable offering this term.  Some classes will be performing new interpretations of the existing routines and others will be faithful recreations!  If you’re a returning student, keep an eye out for some classes with a Back For More rate for students who have already learnt the choreography and have a costume ready to go!

 

These routines will be showcased in a very special graduation show Bombshell Burlesque: By Request in the glorious Brisbane Powerhouse Theatre, complete with cabaret table seating, on Friday 24th April.  This performance will require you to be available from 2pm on Friday afternoon, so ducking out from work early would be required, but so worth it to experience the full, professional performance experience of the Powerhouse Theatre. Keep an eye out for full show details, available soon!

Check out all the details below and join us for some glamour, giggles and glitter!

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.
