CLASSES (SF BAY): POLICIES
WHAT TO WEAR
There is no nudity in any of these classes. However, students are encouraged to wear whatever makes them feel sexy within their comfort level.
Wear clothes and shoes that make you feel comfortable and sexy. We recommend wearing form-fitting attire, so you can see the lines of your body as you move:
* Lingerie you can move in (not too tight or restrictive)
* Fitted t-shirt, tank top, leotard
* Leggings, yoga pants, hot pants
* Bare feet (first 2 classes), then optional shoes you can dance in (character/ballroom shoes, comfy heels no taller than 4 inches)
* A little red lipstick never hurts!
NOTE: There is a dressing room available in the studio to change out of your street clothes before the class starts.
On the first day of class, you will sign a registration form/liability waiver which states:

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS
Instructors Flame Cynders and Mynx d’Meanor have a combined 20+ years of dance/performance experience, encompassing disciplines such as ballet, ballroom, bellydance, modern, “street”, and jazz/swing. We are heavily influenced and inspired by the dance stylings of Jack Cole, Bob Fosse, Cyd Charisse and other “greats” of Broadway and MGM musicals. We incorporate these influences in our approach to teaching burlesque fundamentals and dance choreography.
