What does it mean to be sexy? How do we use our bodies on stage to convey all the many nuanced flavors of our own sexuality? Apply your ideas about sexiness to a fun, sensual burlesque choreography. This is a dance class for burlesquers of any background, with simple movements that provide an opportunity to explore the sexy in you.
About this teacher: Kristina Nekyia is a showgrrrl, belly dancer, circus contortionist, burlesque queen, pin up nymph, actress, fire eater, director, and writer based in Hollywood, California. Kristina was the 2010 First Runner-Up for the title of Queen of Burlesque at the Burlesque Hall of Fame competition in Las Vegas, and in 2005 she was the Hips of Fury Belly Dance Ultimate Soloist. Her dedication to the art of Mongolian contortion led her to study with the Mongolian Circus in Ulaanbaatar, and develop the first ever belly dance contortion fire duet with world-famous contortionist Serchmaa Byamba. Kristina teaches flexibility classes in Hollywood, and this fall she will release her first instructional DVD, “Get Bent: Circus Style Flexibility”.
