Burlesque Classes in Manchester – Tuesdays at 6pm
Please see our special offers
Our burlesque classes in Manchester focus on performance and complement our pole fitness classes for those wanting to turn their workout into something more fun. This is available for beginners and also those with burlesque experience!
There are two different types of Burlesque; there is the classic burlesque which people see in old movies and this is very slow and sexy, and also neo burlesque which is the more modern, faster form of dance that you may see in pop videos.
Burlesque is all about the tease. It combines confidence, facial expressions and eye contact and at Pole Sessions we will help you gain this and also show you some sexy poses and facial expressions. We can tell a story with just your face. Burlesque is a type of performance bringing together a sizzling dance style with elaborate vintage costumes, cool retro tunes and a lot of sassy fun!

What you will do in class
Burlesque is about drawing out your inner sensuality and finding ways to express it that suit you, no matter what your style, age, size, body type, background or ability. You will start off in the beginners where you explore poses, walks, confidence, eye contact and even chose a burlesque name that will help you transform into a burlesque goddess in every class! You will also explore props such as gloves, necklaces, feather boas and learn how to incorporate them into a sexy routine! See Burlesque Level One Courses
When you are ready to enter the intermediate and advanced you will use props such as the chairs, nipple tassels (over your top of course!), lap dancing, fans and even umbrellas! We do lots of sexy dance routines and even explore ways to remove your clothes (without actually stripping). We will also do a little bit of Polesque which includes the pole in your burlesque routines (Don’t worry though its only using the pole not doing advanced tricks). See Burlesque Level Two Courses
Appropriate for all levels, with no previous experience required.
Burlesque is available as private lessons or group sessions. Group sessions are limited to the number of students and you will need to book to attend. For private lessons, please contact us to arrange.

What to wear
Please wear whatever you feel comfortable in, but you must be able to move in it! Leggings and a top are perfectly fine, but we do also encourage people to get a little dressed up for classes as this helps with your self-confidence and also toy make you much more glamorous. Please also wear heels as these help your basic poses and they do look much prettier than a pair of trainers!
