Plus much more!
👠As well as teaching aerial and stretch classes, Roxie is a qualified dance teacher with many years of ballet experience. She has also been involved in exotic pole and burlesque for almost 10 years. Lots of these techniques overlap to create strong, long lines, unique choreography and beautiful dancing.
👠Suitable for beginner to advanced. This is not a choreo class - you will learn techniques for using your platforms to their full potential.
👠No previous pole experience necessary.
👠You will need pole-specific platform heels (such as Pleaser, Hella Heels, Pole Baby etc) with an ankle strap (or boots).
👠 Kneepads encouraged but not essential.
👠Wear leggings/shorts/whatever you're comfortable in. Skin grip not necessary on the pole. Bring grip for your hands if you tend to be slippy.
Point Your F*cking Toes!
AKA Ballet for Aerialists/Ballet for Burlesque
Roxie’s original and most sought after workshop is available to book now for 2020-2021!
This workshop delves into basic ballet technique, as well as looking at grace, posture, and breathing properly (yes, there is a right way to breathe!). You will then discover how to incorporate this into your own burlesque or aerial acts, and even into your regular studio classwork.
This is a practical workshop which can be adapted for those with differently abled bodies.
Wear something you can move easily in (ballet shoes not necessary, but socks are handy) and don’t forget your water!
Dance your own sexy.
Returning after lockdown with brand new material, this is probably Roxie’s favourite workshop to teach! You will learn all kinds of magical floor fuckery and inject your own personality and style into the final piece. This workshop can be tailored to beginner, intermediate, or advanced.
Heels required. Wear something that makes you feel bad ass and allows you to move freely.
Learn to strut your stuff, pose like a pin-up, shimmy and shake. In this 1.5 hour workshop we will work with boas and gloves to learn some classic bump n grind and striptease moves.
Ideal for straight after the beginner workshop. We will look at stocking peels and chair work, building on the cheeky charm and unleashing your inner goddess.
It's all about the twirl, baby! In this one-hour class you will learn nine, yes, NINE ways to tassel twirl! If you don't feel comfortable with tassels, you are welcome to wear them over the top of a bra or t-shirt.
