Fresh off her devastating performance at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in June, where Sweetpea brought the house down with a combination of perfectly executed high-energy moves and luscious slow burn, she is bringing a rockin' workshop to NYC! First time ever, so don't miss out!
Students will do a warmup to loosen and free their limbs, then learn how to move smoothly to the floor, make graceful transitions, do impressive tricks, and return to standing with apparent ease. ​Though beginners will benefit greatly from this workshop, this class is highly suited for intermediate students. Some of the more challenging moves will be deconstructed in order to teach mechanics and build strength (and to workshop on your own time). Wear clothing in which you can move, bring a pair of shoes in which you perform, and keep a bottle of water handy, because you're going to work!
