The Art of Erotic Dance: Striptease & Lapdancing 101 with Andre Shakti



When we find ourselves thoroughly infatuated with a new partner, often we're so excited to get to the main action that we tragically overlook an opportunity for a little old-school seduction. Likewise, if your seasoned relationship has begun to feel stale, you may be scrambling to once again rev up your partner’s engine. Do you wish you could gracefully navigate and elongate those moments between being fully dressed and completely nude? Has a partner suggested you “dance” for them, and you were confused by what they meant? Did you scratch your head through “Showgirls” or “Flashdance” wondering how they make stripping look so effortless? Never fear - this is the class for you!

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

- Approach erotic dance as an internal process first and an external process second,
- Absorb tips and tricks for negotiation, costuming, roleplaying, and harnessing confidence,
- Execute some sizzling choreography to help incorporate erotic dance into your sexual repertoire, and
- Discover a fun, interactive, liberating way of staying healthy, active and connected to your body!

**All genders, bodies and abilities welcome**, but no voyeurs, please! Participants are welcome to enjoy the class solo OR invite a partner (or two!) to practice on. Please wear comfortable, breathable clothing that you can move in and ensure you have water easily accessible.
