I don't REALLY know though, because I've never been to a burlesque show, and I kind of doubt that I ever will go to one...Who knows though, because I never, not even in a month of Sundays, ever thought that I would be taking a class like this.
AND NO, I do not get naked in this class. EW.
It's basically learning a few moves like sexy walking and 'bumping', 'grinding', and 'shimmying', all of which I can barely do (and some of which I can't do AT ALL [seriously]), in case you were curious. But being out of my element is kind of fun. And thinking about burlesque in the olden days makes me feel all black-and-white-movie about myself. So, that's pretty cool.
The only thing is that you're supposed to be all bouncy about everything that you do, and I've spent the best part of my life trying to NOT be bouncy. Eh, I just hate to jiggle, it doesn't feel awesome. I think that's normal behavior, but I'm being forced to go against the norm.
The only other real problem that I have in this class is the mirror. I know that's totally stereotypical (but also, not really), you see, every time that I'm trying to be serious about my skillz I end up glancing at my stupid face in the mirror, then turn into a ham. I can't keep a straight face to save my life.
But, sometimes you just gotta change it up bitchez.
Everyone should probably take some weird class that they wouldn't normally be interested in.
And that's my advice for the day.
