WORKSHOP: Lyrical Burlesque Series with Delilah D’Lish

March 8, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 8:45 pm


If you want a short term burlesque skills commitment that will help give you some foundational skills to feel grounded, create more body awareness, and incorporate slower styles into your performance, this lyrical burlesque series is for you.

Throughout these 4 weeks we will go through how to incorporate Lyrical style movement into your burlesque performances. This series is targeted toward existing solo burlesque performers, but is also open to those who want to explore this style as well.

This class is great for learning how to be present and grounded while on stage, and creating awareness within your body.

***Please note that I am still currently on sabbatical from Passion and Performance dance studio due to a heavy course load. This will be the last session I offer prior to exams in April, and may offer a couple more short series in May/June.***
