Conscious Burlesque

The Conscious Burlesque Class is a combination of burlesque technique and group choreography. This class is one hour and fifteen min and is designed for beginning to intermediate students and is co-led by Madame Merci and The Creatrix.

Awaken the Dance

Awaken the Dance began with a group of Hannah’s friends in her living room, and expanded to a workshop at Shine last summer. The class combines dance, which helps manifest awareness in the body, and meditation, which manifests awareness of the mind and heart

The class begins in a circle with participants lying down as Hannah rings a bell three times and invites everyone to relax into their bodies, sets an intention for the class and shares a quote. Then she leads students through a “body scan,” where they check in with their bodies, one part at a time, using sensation as a vehicle for meditation, instead of following a breath or mantra. Then, the class moves into warmup, stretching and dancing, both free dance and simple choreography.
