26 Apr Bootylicious Beyonce Twerkshop With a Lemonade Twist
You will dance like Beyonce to Beyonce music. You will twerk. You will shake your jelly, a lot.
It’s all going down this spring at the 2016 edition of our fabulous Bootylicious Beyonce Twerkshop, this time featuring some brand new routines inspired by her latest album, “Lemonade.” And yes, we will be getting into Formation!
We put together our first Beyonce dance workshop in spring 2013, inspired by Queen Bey’s epic performance at the SuperBowl halftime show. We’ve done annual variations on the theme ever since, with varying levels of twerking involved. We even did a Beyonce Tapshop one year! It’s been almost six months since our last cardio pop/hip-hop celebration of the iconic singer, so we figured it’s about (the end of) time to rectify that situation.
So unleash your inner diva and join all-star trio Sharice, Michelle and Deborah for 90 minutes of nonstop hip rolling, booty shaking, chest pumping, heart thumping cardio dance. We don’t even pretend to be nearly as bootylicious as the real Destiny’s Child, but we’ll do our best to teach you some of their trademark moves, as well as Beyonce’s signature hip pops and drops.
The workshop will begin with follow-the-leader routines set to D.C. and Beyonce hits past and present, from “Bootylicious” to “Who Run the World (Girls)” and the newly released “Hold Up.” After warming up, you’ll also learn a few longer combinations so you can be prepared just in case Beyonce needs some back-up dancers for her next video.
Don’t worry if you’re rusty on your body rolls and booty popping — we’ll break down the more complex choreography so that everyone can master it. Sharice “let me show you my twerk face” Sloan-El will also give a mini “twerktorial” so everyone can practice gluteal gyrations that would make Beyonce proud. Big booty or small, male or female, she’ll show you how to jiggle whatever junk you’ve got in your trunk.
Ages 13 and up, however please note that some of the songs contain expletives. Space is limited to make sure everyone has room to dance. So, if you’re ready to get crazy and a little naughty, get your tickets now because this workshop has been known to sell out!
