What is Burlesque?

Burlesque dance is an enchanting art form that combines elements of acting, storytelling, and sensual dance movements. Historically linked to the early vaudeville and cabaret scenes, modern Burlesque has transformed into a medium for performers to express their individuality and artistic creativity, often with a focus on humor, satire, and elaborate costumes. It’s more than just dance; it’s a theatrical performance that engages and captivates the audience, making it unique among dance styles.

At Five6seven8 Dance Studio, we are proud to offer comprehensive Burlesque dance classes that not only teach the basic steps and routines but also delve into the rich history and evolution of this vibrant art form.

Lizanne Robinson - Acro, Burlesque, Contemporary, Modern Instructor

Lizanne Robinson

I have been lucky enough to be dancing in some form my entire life. I started at the age of 3 with classical ballet, modern, and tap, and then acrobatics and gymnastics a few years later. In high school I started Latin and Ballroom dancing, completing my teachers training in 2008. I joined the UJ dance company in 2010 and was exposed to a multitude of styles from Cabaret, Urban Funk, Jazz, and Contemporary. I was definitely the worst at HipHop! I have a postgraduate degree in Anatomy and Biological Anthropology but prefer being in the dance studio all day. 
I have been teaching for 17 years and absolutely love every minute of it.
