MAS is thrilled to announce this rare 6 week series~
CLASSIC BURLESQUE WITH PRINCESS FARHANA!!!
In this class series you’ll learn Classic American Burlesque and it’s most legendary, glamorous stars. Technique includes a variety of showgirl walks; boa work, turns, bumps and grinds …ranging from nice to naughty. We’ll go over vintage-style strip tease mechanics with the emphasis on tease : many different glove peels, and garment removal for the stage. We will also touch upon costuming including pastie application, stage presence and showgirl attitude. You will also learn a short burly routine to a classic, mid-century vintage song.
For thirteen years, Princess Farhana was one of the stars of America’s first and most well-known neo-burlesque troupe, The Velvet Hammer, and was the principle dancer in Margaret Cho’s touring burlesque show, “The Sensuous Woman”. She produced and starred in the very first instructional burlesque DVD in 2005: “Boom Boom: Hot Burlesque Moves For Cool Chicks”.
