All Levels Burlesque Workshop

with Krystyna Sorrentino

12:00pm, Sunday, April 23, 2017

 

 

"Neoburlesque" choreography based classes that are designed to inspire the confidence in you as a dancer and make you feel sexy no matter what your body type is or what dance background you came from. "Neoburlesque" - Also known as "new" burlesque breaks the mold of the traditional American Burlesque performances by encompassing a wider range of performance styles while putting the emphasis on the "tease" rather than the "strip." Designed for beginner to intermediate dancers who want to embrace their sexier side! Hip roll, hair flip, and shimmy your way through this sexy workshop comprised of four 45 minute classes. Some dance experience recommended but NOT required. DANCE heels/boots encouraged but not required. Regular dance clothes such as yoga wear are acceptable for this workshop.

 

Class Schedule (12:00 PM - 4:00 PM)

  • 12:00 PM Registration / Check-in
  • 12:15 PM Burlesque Groove Warmup: Get comfortable with your body in a fun groove, "follow along' style warm up and stretch combined with some core exercises to get your abs, legs, and booty fired up. Work on combos that include some basic moves that you will later include into your choreography.
  • 1:00 PM Slow and Sexy: Start your first choreography based class with a slow and sexy routine. This type of choreography will be taught at a level suited for everyone but with different variations of difficulty and performance so that everyone will be able to take the performance to the level that they choose. Don't forget to bring your sexy!
  • 1:45 PM Lunch / Pizza Party
  • 2:30 PM More Sass: This class is going to be all about using the confidence that we've built up over the last three classes and putting it all into a more upbeat, fun, and funky pop style piece of choreography. Let your hair down and have some fun! This class is more about having fun than a technique based class.
  • 3:15 PM Performance and Styling: The end of this workshop will combine both pieces of choreography into one performance piece. We will focus on aspects of burlesque styling and how to perform it in groups. This is where we will be building our confidence in the movement by running the routine.


Bio:

Krystyna, also known as "Cherrybomb" on the burlesque stage, has been dancing and performing since before she can remember. Since the age of 5 she has been performing in jazz dance recitals and competing on competition cheerleading teams. After her move to San Diego seven years ago, Krystyna found herself dancing on the sidelines of San Diego's minor league basketball team, the SD Wildcats and SD Surf. She then continued on to join Kris Babao's performance hip hop fusion team, "Definition of Creativity" also know as D.o.C. While dancing with Kris, Krystyna was introduced to their sister dance teams at "Ooh La La Dance Academy" in La Jolla, CA. Krystyna was immediately drawn to the sexy styles of their Latin burlesque team, the "Cosabellas". Finding her niche in Burlesque, she felt at home. For four years Krystyna danced on their team all while expanding her love for the Latin dance culture as well and joining their semi-pro couples salsa team. While with this company Krystyna was able to travel, train and perform at numerous dance conferences and teach beginner burlesque fusion classes at the studio. The Cosabellas were also on Americas Got a Talent Season 6 in the top 100 and went on to "Vegas Week" which is one of her most cherished dance memories. Also while in San Diego, Krystyna auditioned for the San Diego Charger Girls and became a finalist as well as getting chosen to be one of the "Pussycat Dolls" at Robin Antin's "PCD Dollhouse." Robin Antin, the creator of the hit pop girl group "The Pussycat Dolls" came and opened the club early in 2011 and with her supervision left Krystyna in charge of supplying new choreography for the staff. Krystyna also belongs to NRG Music and Productions with whom she dances and performs with at numerous corporate events throughout the year. Now currently residing in the Los Angeles and Orange County area, she is looking forward to taking her dance career to the next level and share her love of dance with the community. Dance is what inspires Krystyna, and her goal is to inspire others.
