August 4, 1-3PM: Conquering the Stiletto with Truvy Trollop

Ever wondered how women can walk, much less dance, in sky high heels? Do you want to create that sexy strut instead of a teetering skip in your favorite Louboutins? Truvy Trollop can teach you everything you need to know about conquering high heels. In this intensive workshop attendees will learn basic high heel walking techniques and how to dance in your heels. Truvy teaches this fun and foxy workshop so that you can learn to feel confident and controlled in your favorite sky high pumps! Students are encouraged to bring at least two different pairs of shoes with different heel heights. 

August 4, 3-5PM: Get POLISH with Harvest Moon

Burlesque sensation from NYC ONE TIME ONLY! Learn to strike the final pose! End an act with flair and leave the crowd wanting more. Get practice using hand gesturing and finding fluidity in movements to make them more cohesive and awe-inspiring. Class also includes stretching for increasing flexibility. Bring high heel shoes and whatever you can loosely move it. Be prepared to sweat and love it!

* stay tuned for more School of Shimmy courses coming to the CSC in the following weeks
