About the Workshops:

BEGINNER ROCK 'N ROLL BURLESQUE
Do you love rock and roll? So do we! Set to a full soundtrack of classic rock music (think Led Zeppelin, Queen, Guns n'Roses The Rolling Stones…and many more)

Portia will guide you though a sweaty warm-up and teach you how to move, listen and improvise to rock music + end with a high-energy routine.

ADVANCED FOSSE CABARET
Life is a cabaret! We'll be embracing the classic Fosse style of turned-in knees, sideways shuffling, and rolled shoulders. We'll learn some of the classic Fosse technique and incorporate it into a combo. Students should have some prior dance experience and be comfortable with pirouettes and kicks.

OPEN LEVEL EROTIC FLOOR
You can call me Miss Favro, if you're nasty.

In this workshop, we'll explore hyper sexual and sensual movement (including floor + heel work).

After a juicy warm-up, expect a combination of sexy floor moves from body rolls, body waves, shoulder stands, combined with Portia's signature heels dance choreography.
