Show Burlesque combines show dancing with the fascinating flirting, seduction and flirting of burlesque.
Please bring your own knee pads or leg warmers to the workshop to protect your knees.
You can dance with your socks or toe pads, we do not recommend you to wear any dance sneakers during the class. Normal, comfortable sports clothes are fine, you can also wear something suitable for the theme, if you feel like it (e.g. fishnet tights).
Mirka has a long history of different dance styles. She started dancing at the age of seven with ballroom dancing and continued until her teenage years. Mirka found dancing again in 2010, and she fell in love with Latin dances, especially Cuban dances. After that, she has danced many different dance styles. However, Show Burlesque took her heart and gave a whole new meaning for dancing.
Mirka has been teaching at Flama since 2018, and the number of her classes has only increased over the years. Currently Mirka is teaching Show Burlesque, cha-cha-cha, samba, rumba, jive, reggaeton, paso doble, salsatón, salsa, bachata and chairlesque. The years of experience is reflected in insightful and skilled choreographies that have been inspired by all the dance styles Mirka has danced.
As a teacher, Mirka is compelling and purposeful but still easy-going. There is always a cheerful atmosphere in the classes. It is important to Mirka that the joy of dancing is present in her teaching, as well as the enjoyment of the music, own movements and the crossing of boundaries.
Mirka has been part of different dance groups. Earlier she was the choreographer and one of the dancers in the Show Burlesque dance group called glamGRLS’n’pantyHOES. Nowadays, she does the same in Flama’s own Latin dance group, Flama Crew. In addition, she is leading and making the choreographies for Flama’s Show Burlesque group, Flaming Firecrackers and Flama’s Reggaeton group La Calentura.
