Burlesque Dancing (NS)
Are you a little bit curious to try the art of the tease?
You will learn how to bump, grind, shimmy and shake and put it all together in a cheeky routine which is perfect for mamas who want to have little bit of fun while getting fit and making friends.
No prior dance experience necessary - we will be gentle!
We encourage you to dress up in your interpretation of burlesque with a little bit of sparkle so you can dance like a diva.

Meet your teacher:
Sparkle Burlesque was founded by Ms Sparkles in 2018 after several years as a burlesque performer, pin up model and dance teacher in Sydney. She took a break from burlesque to have her baby daughter and is now passionate about bringing the art of the tease and the beauty of burlesque to mamas. She believes that burlesque can transform lives through body positivity and embracing diversity. Burlesque is a beautiful and gentle way of getting in touch with your individuality, sensuality and feminine side again.
