Workshop: Burlesque For Hoopers: Sexy Multitasking

Workshop will include free movement and character building exercises to help the students embody their inner sass bomb while handling their hoop, and then establish some techniques to remove specific clothing articles elegantly while hooping (gloves, shirt, shoes). Time permitting, the students will create a short choreography that culminates in a removal of their choice and perform it for each other in groups.
