TWO FAN DANCING WORKSHOPS!

SEPT 21st, 3-6pm

FAN DANCE TECHNIQUE (3-4:20 pm)

Whether you're new to the world of fan dancing or an experienced showgirl whose fans are gathering dust, this class will instill in you the confidence and knowledge you need to fan dance fantastically onstage! We'll start the class by revisiting basic fan handling techniques, from finding a comfortable grip to moving your fans around your body with grace and ease. We'll explore different types of fan movement and learn framing poses that help you use fans to showcase your performance. This class is for people who own or want to learn to work with large ostrich feather fans (20x40 or larger.) A limited amount of fans will be available for people who do not own them... please reach out to Jezebel after registering if you need to borrow fans for this class!

FAN DANCE CHOREOGRAPHY (4:30-6 pm)

This advanced class is for burlesque artists who know how to hold ostrich fans and work with them, but don't feel confident or excited about performing with them onstage. Before you say "I'm not really the fan dancing type", try out this class and rethink your relationship with your fans! We'll explore different styles of ostrich fan dancing, from dreamy to dazzling, and try them several movement styles to see if there's one that connects with your performance preferences. We'll learn some short fan dancing combinations at different tempos, utilizing several fan holds, with the goal of finding the style that makes sense to you so you can leave feeling confident with fans in your hands. We'll also address a performer's practical concerns: how to choreograph a fan dance that sparkles instead of snoozes, how to utilize fans in floorwork, and how to get your clothes off while your hands are full! Bring your fans, and your questions! Wear clothing you can move in. A limited amount of fans will be available for people who do not own them, but this class will not cover basic holds or fan work, so if you are inexperienced with fans, please take the Technique class offered immediately before this one. Reach out to Jezebel after registering if you need fans for this class!
