Do you ever find yourself bumping and grinding and flipping your hair on the subway? Have an irrational love for firehouses? Baby, you've got a fever, and the only prescription is MORE POLE.
You want to learn to pole dance? Allow us to introduce you to a budding new member in the Hubba Hub:
Wicked Pole Dance and Burlesque is a fusion of aerial arts, attitude, and sexy striptease. The company's main focus is to provide venues and performance opportunities to local entertainers who want to practice or show off their skills, be they hoop, aerial, pole, comedy, drag, belly dance, erotic performance art, or classic burlesque. All members of all local troupes are invited to be a part of Wicked's performances representing themselves or as representatives of their own companies. More on that later...
Philip Deal, artistic director at Wicked, is also actively building a class schedule geared toward those who wish to learn exotic, burlesque, and circus arts--and oh yes, this includes the mighty pole. You may recognize Philip and his pole dancing expertise from Boston's holiday smash hit The Slutcracker.
Philip will be starting his "Level One Pole" classes this Tuesday, April 10. The six-week session is designed to not only teach you gorgeous and sexy moves on the pole, but is also a sexy and super fun way to gain strength and improve overall fitness. You can pre-register for this six week session at Wicked's website. There are only a few spots left in this workshop, so act fast!
6 Tuesdays, starting April 10, 2012.
7:00-8:30pm in Central Square Cambridge
Please contact PhilipRyanDeal@gmail.com or call 617.899.9237 for further details.
From Wicked's website:
Level One Pole:
"In this level you will have a full introduction to how to prepare your body for pole with a floor warm up and strength building exercises on the pole, learn all of the basic spins, how to climb, and learn simple choreography to weave what you learn together on “static” pole."
Philip has also set up a regular performance showcase at the Dark Lady in Providence, RI. Read on if you're a seasoned performer or even an aspiring star! This could be a perfect outlet for you!
"The Dark Lady in Providence RI has graciously provided their club every third Thursday of the month to host our monthly event. If you have an interest in being part of one of our events please email PhilipRyanDeal@gmail.com. Once again this venue is a great place to start if you are new to burlesque and are seriously trying to have real performance time on stage with an audience."
Here's to hoping we see you on a pole or on a stage in the near future! Have a great weekend!
