Rainbow is an award-winning burlesque artist based in Canberra. With a background in ballet and jazz, she commenced learning silk fan veils with Jazida in Canberra in 2015. Since then she has gone on to perform as part of Jazida’s Fabulous Fan Dancing Troupe and incorporate fan veils in to her solo burlesque work. Known for her stage presence, originality and technique, Rainbow has quickly become a sought after performer at local and national events and became the 2017 Burlesque Idol Australia Winner!

Rainbow is looking forward to teaching her particular brand of fun loving, free wheeling burlesque and dance, and brings two amazing workshops to choose from!
Or why choose, do both at a discounted rate!

1. Fancy Footwork with Rainbow! 1:30pm (1.5 hour class)

Fancy Footwork is a Broadway Jazz workshop for people keen on exploring this dance style to either incorporate into your burlesque performance or to just enjoy and have fun. In this workshop you will be exposed to a jazz technique-based warm up, introduced to the choreographic styles from Broadway musicals with particular focus on developing high kicks and quick footwork. You will also learn a fun choreography to the song ‘One’ from ‘A Chorus Line’.

Clothing: comfortable exercise clothes that enable you to kick and turn with ease; a top or bowler hat for the routine (a cheap one from a $2 store is appropriate); and dance heals as there will be strutting and lots of it.

Level: All levels – beginner to advanced.

2. Fan veil Fan-tastic with Rainbow 3pm (1.5 hour class)

In this workshop you will learn how to dance with silk fan veils starting by establishing a strong fan veil technique through drills and building to a fun choreography. You will learn: fan veil holds or grips; opening/closing fan veils; learning right from left fan veils; how to control your fans; fan veil figure eights; fan veil dance drills and a short group routine. Fan veils will be provided, but you are also welcome to bring your own.

What to wear: comfortable, loose clothing to dance in.

Level: All levels – beginner to advanced.
