The Showgirl Academy offer cheeky dance classes which will leave you bursting with confidence!
The Showgirl Academy is based in Bristol and Bath and offers professional yet friendly cabaret themed dance classes and workshops.
The Academy welcomes ladies of all ages, shapes and sizes and no previous dance experience is required to take part.
The emphasis of the courses and workshops is based on fun, whilst getting fit, making new friends and of course learning how to dance like a true showgirl! Our workshops are great ice breakers and giggles are guaranteed.
We offer numerous Hen Party themes including:
Discover your alter-ego as you explore the glamorous world of burlesque and burly-cabaret. You will learn the staples of posing, peeling, teasing, characterisation, prop work and of course the fine art of tassel twirling! You will pose like Marilyn, peel like Gypsy Rose Lee, tease like Immodesty and discover that inner diva, femme fatale, comedian or ‘bad girl’ – all in a day’s work for a budding burlesque artist!
Transform yourself into a true showgirl as you learn all of the cabaret styles of dance including beautiful burlesque, high-kicking can-can, and cheeky charleston. By the end of this action packed workshop you will be posing and teasing like a burlesque star, amusing with your quirky flapper steps and flashing your knickers as you can-can!
Fan Dance Workshop
Fan dancing is a showstopping dance style, elegant and visually beautiful. Working with two beautiful ostrich feather fans, you will learn how to ‘hide and reveal’, teasing your audience with the fans, and focusing their attention on illusions of exposure. Fan dancing works on the essence of suggestion and exploits the dancer’s skill of manoeuvre, poise and motion. It combines a blend of style, grace and flirtation with a touch of humour.
