CHRISTCHURCH: Taught by one of the dancers from "Ayla's Angels" Christchurch's Premier Burlesque Troupe and will introduce participants to the art of burlesque, specifically chair burlesque. There will be no nudity involved as the only articles of clothing taken off will be hat and gloves (please bring these along with a good pair of high heels that you can comfortably move around in). Wear whatever you like as long as you can move freely in it, skirts and dresses are probably not a good idea unless you have a pair of shorts underneath. You will be taught an actual chair burlesque routine to music and the emphasis is on having fun! The class will be held in the Circo Arts studio at CPIT.
