Get your Frou-Frou on with Ophelia Coeur de Noir & Fishnet Follies!
Open to students who completed LEVEL 1, regardless of kick-ability. This is going to be FUN!
Each session will start with a warm-up specially modified for cancan dancing, followed by some basics and variations of the traditional can-can. We’ll end each night with a proper cool down to keep your muscles happy into the next day.
The first session will review the drills and combinations we learned in Level 1 and Level 2A, and a refresher on a bit of history of the tres scandalous dance known as Le Cancan.
The second two sessions will include development of the full routine. We will assign specific dancer positions by the end of the series in preparation for Level 3 and stage performance*.
