Burlesque is a specific style of dance, often associated with Gypsy Rose Lee and more recently Dita Von Teese. The style is mischievous, cheeky, sensual, tantalizing and most of all FUN.
Burlesque Fitness uses this style to enhance fitness moves, it can help tone and improve flexibility.
The way we teach the classes is inclusive for all levels, giving beginner, intermediate and advanced level options to many moves within routines.
We DO NOT push anyone too far from their comfort zone, or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy. Burlesque fitness should be all inclusive fun which is also good for personal fitness and confidence levels.
