This is a fun, high energy class inspired by the music videos of K-Pop (Korean Pop Music) superstars like Psy and 2NE1. In this progressive course dancers will learn an original (no dance covers) choreographed dance routine which will be filmed with costumes in a 'mini-music video'. Each dancer will receive a copy of the video upon completion of the course.

Students can expect to have choreography tailored to their ability level, so all levels are welcome. They will also receive coaching on how to perform for the camera.

The dance styles will be based in hip hop, sexy street jazz and burlesque, with a unique asian flair.

If you want to learn to dance, improve your fitness, and learn to dance for film and music videos, then this is the course for you!

Burlesque/Cabaret

with Nadia Dobrianskaia & Leigh Torlage (choreography)

 

 

 

Get Fit. Learn to Dance. Perform. Leigh Torlage's Cabaret-Burlesque is a technique-based, Fosse-inspired dance class with a twist. Fun, sexy and theatrical - in these classes you will learn to dance properly in heels and have a great workout while gaining a strong dance foundation.

Performance is the emphasis and you will learn a full, Cabaret-Burlesque dance in each class. At the end of the session students are encouraged to perform their completed dances onstage at Leigh's Student Performance Night at the Legendary Penthouse Nightclub.

Classes are taught by Cabaret Torlage performer, Nadia Dobrianskaia. Nadia has been taking Leigh's classes and perfecting her style for a number of years. Nadia performs weekly in Leigh's Cabaret Torlage shows. Leigh's unique style comes from a life of performing, creating and choreographing in stage/film & TV. Visit www.torlage.com for more info and to check out Leigh's Cabaret Torlage shows.

Broadway style: OPEN LEVEL/BEGINNERS WELCOME! Thurs 8:15
Theatrical, Fosse-based, stylized – such as in the films Burlesque & Chicago.  Music ranges from theatre (All That Jazz) to Pop (Candyman) but usually has a loose story line/theme.

next song: Time Warp from Rocky Horror Picture Show

Rock n’ Roll style: OPEN LEVEL Wed 7:00
Sexy dancing to Rock music. Music ranges from Classic Rock to Punk Rock and everything in between.  Style is typically more edgy than the Broadway Burlesque.
