 **FAN DANCE WORKSHOP with Ruby Decadence**  (Specialty Workshop)

You want to create your own feather fan routine but don’t quite know where to start? Or are you just curious about those glorious beauties? In this workshop you will learn all about feather fans for burlesque.
The theoretical part will introduce you to the history of fan dance, a tradition of burlesque since the 1930s. We will talk about different kinds of feather fans, where to get them, what to look for, and how to store and tend them. In the practical part we will learn a special warm-up fitted for fan dance, a number of classical poses and moves, which we will then combine to a memorable routine to a classic burlesque tune.
Please bring your own fans if you have any. Small hand fans also work if you don’t yet have big feather ones.
*Some hand fans available in the studio.

Time: 13.45 – 15.45
Price: 55€
Language: German/English
Level: Open
Bring: Something comfortable to dance in, fans if you have them, and water.
