Summer Workshops

After the wonderful success of last year, we are very excited to announce that the Luscious Summer Workshops are back by popular demand! Join us in July and August for the opportunity to be taught by some of the finest artists that London has to offer. From clowning to tassel twirling, we have a wide range of unique workshops that will help enhance your performance skills.

Each workshop is an hour and a half and is priced at £30, but you can combine them in discounted packs of 3, 4, and 5. Or why not go for a full house and choose all six for only £120? All workshops will be held at The Academy Mews Studios in Camden. Hard to say no with this incredible line up of guest artists…

There is a huge crossover in the bellydance and burlesque movement venn diagram and we need to harness its power! Get more grind out of your grind and oomph into your bump using solid technique from belly dance.  This workshop features clear breakdowns, repetition, and analysis of movement to really lock it into your muscles, give you better body awareness and take your bumps and grinds all the way up to 11. This workshop will feature conditioning for the lower body for strong foundations and posture, a few movement drills and a flexibility-based cool down to keep your hips nice and loose after all that work. This is going to get a little sweaty so dress for the gym and bring water!
