Bro-lesque is a class mixing elements of movement, support group, flexibility training with a good measure of inner and outer strength building.

Facilitated by dance crew leader, Abe Teebz Bent, classes will be combination of physical activity, social interaction, and mental stimulation, exploring and celebrating masculinity. 

Bro-Lesque is based on a mix of hip hop and modern day neo-burlesque performance styles, where men step out of the strict ‘societal norms’ to do something seemingly sexual or risque where in fact it is just bros being bros.

No – its not naughty!

This series of workshops will build confidence and skills whilst exploring your inner – and outer feminine energies.

Sian, the owner and Founder of ‘Tease Not Sleaze’ has structured these workshops for the very beginner, for every size, shape and age to ensure a safe, fun atmosphere. There are two classes – one for beginners and one for those who wish to perform and be part of a dance troupe.

Traditionally, burlesque has been a type of variety show that is both provocative and comedic. It features a female chorus and solo dances, plus bawdy, slapstick skits and songs. And yes, it may feature striptease acts, but not necessarily- and certainly no nakedness! This is about the art of teasing, provocation and pure feminine playfulness.

Eight Week Course $100 Non Members and Stanthorpe Little Theatre Members – $80 or $15 per class.

Be your version of beautiful as you discover your femininity through dance.

Activities are a group effort with contributions from each woman as she feels comfortable to share. From time to time, there are themed weeks depending on the groups desires ( bellydance to bootscoot, to rock and roll, to salsa to line dance)

We meet at Stanthorpe Little Theatre on a Tuesday evening from 6 till 7 pm.

Ladies are welcome to wear what makes them feel comfortable to move on stage and to music with.
