Bumps, Grinds, Shimmies, and Shakes Workshop

  • Wichita Scottish Rite 332 East 1st Street North Wichita, KS, 67202 United States (map)

Every classic burlesque routine contains 4 basic moves: walks, bumps, grinds, and shimmies. This class will not only introduce those moves, but we’ll put them to use right away! We’ll begin some basic choreography that will not only use all the moves we’ve learned, but get you ready to continue your burlesque study. You’ll leave feeling sexy and confident. Whether you take this class for fun, or because you dream of a career in burlesque, this is THE class for you. Only $20 to attend.

Watch her perform in "Dames, Divas, and Drag" on March 25, and purchase a raffle ticket for $1 (benefits Battle Buddies) for you chance to attend the workshop.
