It is a great pleasure to have Princess Farhana on faculty at MAS teaching TWO weekly classes!!! Don't miss this fantastic opportunity to learn from the best (plus the stories are outrageous.)
Mondays 9:45-10:45pm "The Late, Late Show"
This is not an ordinary dance class. The Late, Late Show is a place where focused movement meets high creativity. After a rigorous warm up, we’ll run follow-along multi-genre technique drills for belly dance, burlesque and old school jazz, followed by intense stretching. The second half of the class we’ll work on improv, theater games, and performance polishing. We’ll work on building and perfecting your pieces for the stage or competition, so bring your music, your ideas, finished pieces or works–in-progress. Be prepared to perform, to give and receive constructive critique, adapt, revise and perform again. Level: Intermediate through professional dancers
Saturdays 4:00-5:15pm "Burlesque~mixed level"
This ongoing class covers burlesque technique- from basics such as bump ‘n’ grind combinations, turns, spins, and costume removal to more advanced movements, such as flexibility training and floor work, prop use, attitude and character work. We will also learn about costuming- fastenings and closures; how to deal with “reverse wardrobe malfunctions”; stage make-up tips, crowd control and developing a stage persona. Please bring high heels, a costume or panties and a bra, gloves, a boa or any other costume pieces or props you may wish to use in class. ** THIS CLASS IS PG RATED- NO NUDITY REQUIRED
Classes are on-going. Dropins are welcome. $15 a class or purchase a class card (5 classes for $60, 10 classes for $100). See you at MAS!!!
