April Schedule

8:00pm Big Bad Boa with Coco Lectric (All level)

This 1-hour burlesque boa class that turns boa students into Boa Baddies!

Thursdays:

5:30pm Bootylesque (All level) with Zaftigg von BonBon

Welcome to the temple of ASS! This is a high-energy class that is all about mastering your booty moves and embracing the power of the jiggle. We’ll start with some Jane Fonda style toning to target the muscles you’ll need to pop, wiggle and shake that derrière. We’ll move onto some Bounce-style twerk moves and some Bump-n-Grind butt stuff. 

Spandex boy/booty shorts or non-restrictive leggings are ideal for this class (or leggings that don’t restrict the seismic activity of that booty). KNEE PADS and YOGA MATS are highly recommended. Whether you’re a master of your posterior or are still wondering what all the rump fuss is about, you’ll come away with a new respect for the power of your booty!

7pm Slinky Floorwerk (All level) with Zaftigg von BonBon

This class brings it down on the floor and invites you to release your inner serpent. With an emphasis on isolations, extensions, increasing flexibility, and transitioning to and from the floor, we’ll slink, twist, slide, and roll to filth!

Each class will feature either a routine or a focus on transitional movements to keep your audience mesmerized. Even though the moves may be slower, you will definitely break a sweat and learn a few new tricks. Dress in clothes you can move in. Knee pads and floor mats are recommended!
