Showgirl Classes

Showgirls.Life Blog – Showgirl Classes

Attention burlesque artists, dancers and stage newbies! (And those who want to feel sexier in their bodies!)

ShowgirlsLife Blog – What exactly is the X Factor?

Ready to learn a unique dance style that can improve your confidence onstage (and off!)? 

Gazella’s new movement classes will be focused on the iconic showgirl style of movement including walking, choreography and poses to add to your style repertoire. These classes are meant to be fun, educational and inspirational, even if you don't want to grow up to be a showgirl. So slap on some heels and come join me! Class descriptions below.

Effective 4.8.18: Classes will be discontinued at the end of April. I want to focus more of my time and energy on working one on one with people. If you would like to work with me in that capacity, please see my coaching packages. Thank you!

Tippin’

Tuesdays 5:30-6:25pm
136 Kalamath Street, Denver

This class will include a warmup to get those muscles ready for this unique style of movement, the basics of a showgirl walk and pose, and some basic choreography combos to allow the body to ease into the style. We will build upon the combo weekly and exercise our choreography-learning brains!

Wear comfortable clothing you can move in and bring sneakers and heels you can dance in. Stripper shoes (i.e. spikes, platforms or heels taller than 4” will be uncomfortable and difficult to work with. Please bring sensible heels. 1 1/2-3” ballroom or character shoes)

Kick

Wear comfortable clothing you can move in and bring sneakers and heels you can dance in. Stripper shoes (i.e. spikes, platforms or heels taller than 4” will be uncomfortable and difficult to work with. Please bring sensible heels. 1 1/2-3” ballroom or character shoes)

What you will get from your time spent with Gazella, will be lessons that you can carry throughout all areas of your life. What I have learned from Gazella are things that go further than just dancing: I've learned to loosen up more and become more comfortable with my body, I've come to a place where I want to start to challenge myself beyond what I normally do and I've learned to have more faith in myself. What I love most is that Gazella is a teacher that wants to truly see you grow and learn to be kind to yourself, so you can also have fun enjoying the process.

FAQ

What's Tippin'?

Tippin' is the loving reference the showboys gave to the showgirl's movement as they walk. As if they are tip toeing.

Where are the classes held?

Classes are held in the studio space at Spa in the City. Located at 136 Kalamath in Denver, Colo. It's on the left, right after Brewery Bar. There is a lot just south of the building to park in. The studio is in the back of the building and you can access it to the right of the staircase.

How long are the classes?

Each class is 55 minutes to give time for the studio to clear out and make room for the next class.

Are these classes designed for trained dancers?

Absolutely not! Of course trained dancers are welcome, but the purpose of the classes is to break down the mechanics for people desiring to learn to walk more confidently in heels, prepare their bodies to kick and learn chorus dancer/precision dancer etiquette and learn how to be more confident in your body in general!
