January Peer Reviews

January Peer Reviews are here!! (6:15pm – 8:15pm)

Burlesque Peer Reviews are an opportunity to further develop or assist with the creation of both old and new routines! Hosted by Cherry Cheeks, this is an event for community and performer growth.

Join us with a routine in progress or one you want to build upon and receive honest feedback. This is a safe space for your creativity and growth while sharing honest questions about your choices and insights.

Don’t have something to workshop but want to be involved? Come on by with your feedback! Only have a concept or costume? Bring that too!

There are 6 spots available for performers to present their routines, so if you are interested in presenting, please message Cherry Cheeks to get your name on the list. All levels welcome. Workshopping available by a recommended $5.00 – $10.00 donation to help cover studio costs. We want burlesque education & growth to be accessible for everyone & not limited by finances.

Spaces are limited, so please PM Cherry Cheeks if attending, though last-minute drop in spots may open!

We look forward to seeing you January 19th at Wild Roots Dance Studio! ????


Wild Roots Dance Studio has a set of stairs to get to the studio. If mobility is an issue, please reach out to Cherry Cheeks and we will see how we can assist you.

Are you wanting to feel more confident in your movement?

needing some extra steps for your choreography?

are you interested in the world of burlesque but not quite ready for that final reveal?

Well it’s time to feel good and embrace your inner sexy!

Join me, Hazel Nuez , in this 4 week series and we will learn basic burlesque and jazz inspired movements. Each week will be dedicated to learning different sensual movements and how to incorporate it into choreography. I will go over confidence building techniques, burlesque inspired movement, and floor work like:
– body rolls
-hip movement
-chest isolations
– transfer steps
– eye contact
– moving with intention

Find your inner rhythm and embrace it!

Each class will start with a light warm up, simple choreography and a cool down.

This class is perfect for beginner and intermediate dancers, people who are looking to practice some self-care, boost your confidence, anyone who is looking for a segway into the world of burlesque, or just learning to fall in love with yourself again!

you will need comfortable clothing you can move in, bare feet , jazz shoes or heels ,and a water bottle.

NOTE: I will NOT be teaching burlesque (reveals etc.) at this time and I DO encourage you to dress in any way that makes you feel more comfortable and confident!

A little bit about myself…
I have been dancing jazz and contemporary since the age of five and currently teach Latin and ballroom dance since 2018. I have performed all over Victoria for most of my life, and while doing so, I have discovered my love for burlesque and striptease about 2 years ago. I loved the way it made me love my body and boost my confidence. I have been on a mission to spread that joy to other people ever since!

These workshops will take place on the unceded land of the Lekwungen, songhees and Esquimalt people.

I enthusiastically welcome (but not limited to): POC’s, LGBTQ2S+ and non-binary folx.

ACCESSIBILITY: unfortunately Wild roots is not wheelchair accessible. The studio is up a flight of stairs and down a long corridor. I apologize for the lack of acsessbility at this new location. I am going to work hard to try and find an accessible location in the future. The washroom is gender neutral.The studio is a scent free space. The music will operate through the studios portable speaker ( one speaker) which I will attach to my iPod . I will have control over the sound level, but the room has great acoustics! The lights are fairly bright but are able to be dimmed down or up.

If you have any other questions please let me know 🙂
