Do you have friends who rave about watching or taking a burlesque dance class? Have you thought about taking a burlesque dance class, but didn’t know what to expect? I think you should follow your gut and try it out for yourself because now you can do it right at home!

What Is A Burlesque Dance Class?

Burlesque dancing is all about putting on a show. Whether it’s for you or for your significant other, it’s both provocative and sensual.

When people hear burlesque dance, they often assume it’s some form of strip tease. There’s definitely an element of teasing, but it’s so much more than that. It’s about bringing out your self confidence with moves like caressing your legs and arms or feeling sexy while wearing leg warmers. There are also a lot of benefits to trying a burlesque dance class that we’ll go through below not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally!

Why You Should Try A Burlesque Dance Class

Here are 5 reasons why every woman should try a burlesque dance class at least once in her life!

1. Burlesque Dance Classes Are Inclusive

One thing I love about burlesque dance is that any body type can do it. It encourages everyone to love their body and embrace it wholeheartedly. The moves are mostly low impact so any body type can do them. Pressing that play button might be the start to loving your body because you’re telling the world that you believe in your sexiness!

2. Feel Sexier Inside And Out

If you’ve always struggled with feeling sexy, burlesque dance can help improve that part of your personality. Burlesque dance takes a lot of emotion and physicality that you HAVE to embrace your inner sex goddess. Even if the move is just to crawl back and forth, the way you attack that crawl will change the way you feel about yourself overall.

3. Learn Something New About Yourself

Do you ever think you’re not the creative type? Maybe you didn’t know you had an inner sex goddess? Don’t worry, hunny, try a burlesque dance class and you’ll learn so much more about yourself. I learned that I can pull off a sexy hair flip and that I’m a little obsessed with leg warmers too.

4. Burlesque Dance Class Health Benefits

Like other dance classes, burlesque dancing has a lot of health benefits. It’s a great cardio workout where you’ll sweat and even build stamina and endurance for the next time. My favorite benefit from burlesque dance classes is the muscle toning. Working with props like a chair, helps strengthen your core and your arms. Get strong while learning sexy dance moves? Yes please.

5. Improve Your Self Confidence

We all could use a little confidence boost, right? So why not have a little fun with it too. Taking a burlesque dance class can do just that. Whether you take a class with heels or barefoot with leg warmers, there’s something about the moves that you learn that releases a pep to your step and make you feel like you can conquer the world.
