Online Burlesque Classes

Come and have a shimmy with us!

Welcome to Luscious Online Burlesque Classes.  Where the emphasis is on Fun and being Fabulous.  Yes burlesque has roots in sexy and sass but it also has roots in satire and comedy.  Here at Luscious we encourage you to explore your version of burlesque!  Join Little Lady Luscious for fun, being fabulous and dancing about your living room!

Morning Classes – Funlesque!

After realising she needed an extra bit of motivation to get out of bed on a morning Little Lady Luscious began working on a 15 min shimmy class which evolved into a 45 min class of fun burlesque based exercises to wake up your inner diva (or devil). From the sexy femme fatale to the comedic clown LLL encourages you to have fun and explore your burlesque alter ego.  Two strands of Funlesque were developed during lockdown.  Classic & Disco …

Classic

Each class begins with a warm up and ass shimmy, we then move on to four exercises based round feeling sexy, powerful, cheeky and funny. To round off the class we have a series of routines which climax with a full on shimmy off.  We can guarantee you’ll be ready to start your working day!

No fitness or dance level necessary perfect for beginners and those looking to have a bit of fun.  If you would like to where heels we recommend 2inch cuban style heels, otherwise barefoot or trainers are fine.

Every Wednesday – 8am – 8:45am – £5 – No Class Wednesday 19th August

DISCO

Taking a stroll in early lockdown Little Lady Luscious put on a Disco playlist and instantly felt better.  Channelling the disco and burlesque bumps and grinds she developed a 45 min class aimed at shimmying out those morning blues and embracing the joy of disco! Songs mainly from the 70’s but there’s the odd 80’s classic too.

No fitness or dance level necessary all routines are easy to follow! No heels required for this class.

Every Monday & Friday 8am – 8:45am – £5

No class –  Monday 7th September, Monday 14th September and Wednesday 16th September

Burlesque Rocks!

Born out of a love for rock music from rock ‘n’ roll to hair metal, from glam rock to 90’s bands, LLL adds her burlesque know how to some classic rock tracks.  Come ready to have fun and rock out.  This class is ideal for intermediate burlesquers and we work on your burlesque persona and bringing your unique style to this genre of music.  Remember burlesque can be anything from sexy to comedic and in this case from powerful to kick ass!

Who will be teaching the class?

Meet Little Lady Luscious, but you can call her Emily in class, as that’s a bit of a tongue twister when you have a question.  She’s been teaching burlesque since 2011, these new online burlesque classes have been tailored to those who want to have a bit of fun and forget the world outside.
You’re in safe hands, Emily can be a bit silly but she works with each student helping them to bring out their best selves. She has completed the foundation in Dance Movement Psychotherapy with Goldsmiths University.  And completed her level four (with distinction no less!) dance teacher training with BBO Dance.  A lover of all dance forms but particularly loves the freedom of expression within burlesque and she wants to share that passion with you!

What do I need to wear?

Something comfortable and have a pair of heels handy.  Emily will let you know if we’re going to be playing with props!
