Chair Classes

Quite possibly my favorite class to teach, chairs are accessible to everyone.  They are the most versatile of all the props in the studio.  You can mount then, rotate them, push them, spin on them, dance around them, straddle them…….Let the chair become whatever you desire, whatever suits your fantasy best. Conversely, chair is a format of exotic dance class that does not have to be fantasy driven. Maybe chair acrobatics interests you?

I will never forget the time I entered a talent show at summer camp. I must of been 16. I attended this intensive ballet and modern dance camp every summer. I had a few days to choreograph a routine and audition in front of all of the camp directors. The dance I created was to “Caramel” by Suzanne Vega. I used a chair and a fuschia sash (probably one of my thrift store finds). The dance was sensual and in my mind the chair did become someone I desired. I don’t remember being nervous, not during the audition nor the performance in front of a hundred of my peers. It just felt right to me. Looking back, I could see that I was breaking away from ballet and finding my connection and freedom with exotic dance. I had the desire to be sensual through dance.
