Before radio, music was broadcast via Morse code, which turned everything into treble-heavy dance beats punctuated by demands to STOP. Limber up for more graceful dance moves with today’s Groupon to Scandalesque. Choose between the following options:
- For $27, you get a punch card valid for four drop-in burlesque classes (a $68 value).
- For $50, you get a punch card valid for eight drop-in burlesque classes (a $136 value).<p>
Though subject to change, all drop-in classes are held at Silk Road Studios (formerly known as Al Moro Studios), with classes on Monday and Wednesday at 7 p.m. and on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. This Groupon is not valid for pole classes.
A burlesque revue whose saucy moves have attracted the attention of Fox 10 News and Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Orange County, Scandalesque invites aspiring dancers of all skill levels to learn alluring dances and get fit under the tutelage of professional hip-swivelers. Drop-in classes range from burlesque basics to intermediate-level sultry gazes and toning workouts with a sexy edge. Scandalesque classes focus on proper form and footwork, incorporating props to build students’ confidence and explore their theatrical prowess. Participants should bring their own feather boa and gloves. Sexy Body’s dance-conditioning class, meanwhile, works out glutes and guns in order to tone muscles for powering through intense choreography or unexpected patches of dance-floor quicksand.
