Our next workshop will be:
Striptease: One-Off Workshop with Arlene Caffrey
Saturday February 5th, 12 noon
Arlene taught this workshop online last year and is so excited to do it in person at last!
Valentine’s Day is grand and all… Why not learn a new skill that that you can use for your own amusement and for developing your own self-appreciation (or that you can share with a loved one, if you feel like it)!
This is a fun and sexy one-off suitable for all levels. Arlene will teach you basic Striptease skills incorporating floorwork. It is not strictly a Burlesque workshop, however Arlene will draw from her extensive knowledge and experience in the art of Burlesque in regards to building the tease and engaging with your audience, be it your own reflection or a loved one.
We will begin by discussing mindset and what it means to be standing in your power, to help you to become more at home in your own sensuality. Arlene will then teach you basic striptease tricks, as well as a short choreography that you can bring home, which incorporates all of our newly found sultry skills.
This will not be all about dancing in order to please your partner or to fulfil someone else’s fantasy. The focus will be on learning to move for your own joy and expressing this. In short, being the queen of your own queendom.
All you need is to bring your own layers. Please bring an extra layer on top (like a long sleeve top, something not too tight!) And an extra layer on bottom (like shorts on top of your shorts).
Please feel free to dress up in sexy, sparkly attire (but make sure it’s comfortable and allows you to move/dance easily). Equally, wearing sweatpants and a hoodie is also fine: anything that makes you feel comfortable and at ease. Knee pads are recommended. Pole specific heels (such as Pleasers) are welcome.
Note that this will NOT exactly be a Valentine’s Day themed workshop; no cheesy love songs. The focus will be on learning to move for your own joy. Please feel free to dress up in sexy, sparkly attire (but make sure it’s comfortable and allows you to move/dance easily).
The workshop is €35. And of course, folks with an active IPDA membership get a discount of €5! Email us for your discount code!
