EMBODIED is a neo-burlesque dance workshop for you to explore your Queer sensuality and movement, through the art of striptease. Over 90 minutes, you will journey from fully clothed to gloriously unwrapped through a curated, accessible burlesque routine; a golden opportunity to dress up, dance together, learn the art of the tease, and release your inner femme / themme fatale.
This workshop will step through the fundamentals of Burlesque and Striptease, with a focus on working the Queer gaze. Participants will have a safe, inclusive space to explore sensuality by moving their hips, hair and hearts, while feeling empowered and boosting their confidence.
This is a FREE 90 minute workshop for all, but priority will be given to participants who identify as LGBTQIA+, Women, Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, or as sex workers.
WHAT TO BRING: An item of outerwear (robe, coat, etc) and a bra or singlet that can be removed.
WHAT TO WEAR: Something GLORIOUS! Luxe lingerie or comfortable leggings, or anything in between. Dance heels (any height) and pasties or areola tape are optional but recommended.
EMBODIED is a safe and inclusive event. Any unwelcome behaviour will not be tolerated and will be reported to organizers or staff. EMBODIED endeavours to follow all Covid-19 safety recommendations, and recommends all attendees obtain a negative rapid test prior to attending where possible.
