Courtesy panties are required, and otherwise no holds barred. Event is BYOB so bring drinks and snacks; we’ll socialize for the first hour and a half before we get going with the performances; then, get ready to laugh until your sides hurt. Interested in performing? You especially will be after you see how loving this crowd is! Seriously, who doesn’t love a room full of ladies hooting and cheering for them?? Don’t be shy! Email us if you want to be put on our roster.

Special: The Art of Pasties plus Lap Dance Workshop
Date: February 5th, 2016
Held at Dance Life sometime between 5 and 9pm
We don’t have all the details set yet, but mark your calendars for a night of fun and silly sexiness!
As a burlesque enthusiast and 4-time veteran of Dance Life’s Inappropriate Song Night, our instructor Alex has spent a considerable amount of time around half-naked ladies 😛 During this time, she has learned the ins and outs of an essential striptease prop: pasties. In her first ever workshop, The Art of Pasties, she’s going to give you the down and dirty (pun intended) basics on how to make and twirl your very own pair of pasties.
The first half of the workshop is a simple arts and crafts session. You will learn how to construct pasties to fit your own size, add tassels, and decorate them to fit your personal style or routine. No sewing experience is necessary.
In the second half of class, you will learn how to stick them on and twirl them. Don’t want to bare it all in front of the class? That’s okay. We will provide fabric safe double sided tape that you can wear over your clothes.
Date: March 5th, 2016
Workshop held at Dance Life from 11-3:30pm, show details TBA
Offered by Dance Life instructors Laurin and Arielle
Our midseason event is here! “Ballaret” will feature a unique blend of ballet and cabaret style belly dance. from 11-1pm, dancers will spend an hour each with Arielle and Laurin learning fundamental techniques for graceful movement in the ballet and belly dance fashion. In the afternoon, both will co-teach a choreography that will feature combinations from the morning classes.
New to dance and not sure if you can handle four hours or choreography? No problem! You can attend just the morning portion for $30.
Stay tuned for more details.
