Burlesque Workshops with RAINBOW!
Rainbow is an international award winning burlesque artist. With a background in ballet and jazz, she commenced learning silk fan veils and feather fan dancing 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 and feather fans into her award-winning solo burlesque work. Known for her stage presence, originality and technique, Rainbow has quickly become a sought after performer at local and national events; is the current reigning Miss Burlesque ACT and was recently awarded Miss Classic at the 2019 Miss Burlesque Australia Grand Final.
We are so excited to have her performing at Blue Cabaret's DISCOTHEQUE shows on November 30th and December 14th.

WORKSHOP 2 - Fandementals - Feather fan dancing with Rainbow
Phillips Hall, Blackheath
1:30pm – 2:50pm
Length: 1:20
Purpose: To learn the fan fundamentals for feather fan dancing through the instruction of a fun fan routine.
Class description: Burlesque feather fan dances originated with Sally Rand and Faith Bacon in the 1930s. At the time they were used as a tantalising way to tease the audience with graceful glimpses of skin expertly concealed and revealed by the performer. Today feather fans are also used to show the passion and the fan skills of the performer as much as to tease.
You will learn: a variety of classic and evolving feather fan techniques including holds, switches, the clam, and windmill among others all while learning a fun group fan dance routine.     
Level: all skill levels welcome
What to wear: comfortable clothes for dancing (preferably no long sleeves)
