The agile instructors at Motus Dance Theatre whittle lean physiques with Piloxing classes or cultivate each pupil’s sultry swagger via burlesque lessons. Certified Piloxing instructor Georgeanna Smith fuses the sculpting moves of Pilates with the speed and realistic kangaroo impressions of boxing. Piloxers pull on weighted gloves that banish flab with each hurled punch, fueled by the camaraderie of collective calorie torching. Presenting a new burlesque routine each week, Jenee’ Michelle acquaints bodily assets with a history of sensual choreography ranging from classic pin-up style to neo-style, in which disrobing takes place in a parallel universe. Legs learn to strut, pivot, and tease in heels while fingers practice revealing their workout gear from under button- or zip-up shirts. Rehearsal with popular props increases opportunities to include Mr. Potato Head in first-date fashion shows.

Motus Dance Theatre

Motus Dance Theatre sends its ensemble pirouetting through the walls of convention and into the city's auditoriums, libraries, and art museums. With performances such as Pairings—a series of six dances inspired by six wine and gourmet food matchups—the nonprofit company translates imaginative contexts into spectacles of movement. Its reputation for novelty stems from a mission to disperse the arts throughout the public sphere without putting tutus on every streetlight. By hiring up-and-coming choreographers, planning site-specific installations, and collaborating with other entertainers, the theatre brings continuously evolving dance presentations to the community.

Motus is by no means exclusive: its classes and workshops welcome participants of all backgrounds to enhance their bodily awareness. Lessons from highly trained instructors cover techniques from yoga poses to burlesque pivots, and focus on finding confidence regardless of age or build.
