Tony sets a vibrant, energetic atmosphere with a focus on performance, purpose, motivation and character…all with a reminder of technique and strengthening the dancer by warming up every inch of the body.
Tony thinks outside of the box, often using non-traditional music to set a scene with multiple motivations in a time in which any music can be turned into theatre. Whether using the mirror as a tool, or pulling the scene into a three-dimensional number, Tony challenges his students to step outside of themselves and learn quickly.
No matter the style, Tony always leaves students feeling excited about dance, aware of alignment, inspired about performing and happily exhausted!
Combining his experience in nightlife with his background in theatre, Tony has crafted this unisex dance experience to provide a fun, positive space in which dancers can let loose, cast away self-judgement, tap into the beast within, and nourish self-confidence while celebrating sexuality. Warm up focuses on loosening up the body, isolations, strengthening, deep stretch and an abdominal finaleClass explores several different angles of burlesque movement, set to a soundtrack of the hottest music of the past four decades! Tony utilizes multiple directions and acting exercises to color and give meaning to the movement.
Tony’s philosophy is that any scene can be burlesque…and any burlesque can be a scene.
Heels are encouraged, but not required…and are a welcome tool for any gender identity!
