Spring Burlesque Performance Series

April 21, 2024

Come heat up the stage at our spring Burlesque Dance-Off! We’re putting together three student pieces featuring different musical genres for a sexy showdown at RUBA Club on Saturday, June 1. If you love dancing in the spotlight, now’s your chance to show off your (s)ass!

Find the style of music that speaks to you, then sign up to strut your stuff!

While this show will be entirely burlesque, keep in mind that YOU get to decide how much to take off based on your comfort level (so no need to worry about getting down to pasties unless you want to.) Our instructors will design the choreography so that dancers who’d prefer to stay covered up can also participate — just be aware that this will be an adult show. No prior dance or burlesque experience required.

Rehearsals will begin the last week of April or first week of May, and culminate with the performance on June 1 at 8:30 pm at Ruba.

In addition to the student routines, the “Burlesque U: Dance-Off” will include guest appearances from local pro performers as well as a few improv dance battle interludes (audience participation invited for that, of course!!)

Our performance series often sell out quickly — sign up while you can!

Please make sure you can attend all rehearsals and the final show, as any absences impact the entire group’s progression. Series registration is $80, each rehearsal is 1.25 hours long.
