Miss Laverne

What drew you to Burlesquercise?

What drew me to Burlesquercise was the movie Burlesque. I wanted to dance like those women. I had skated in Ice Capades at age 19 and danced in University, and I missed performing and the costumes.  

What benefits have you experienced from being a part of Burlesquercise?

Dance is my escape. It's exercise, brain challenging, fun and above all has kept me feeling young. Each year is a gift and keeping fit and mobile is necessary! Motion is lotion and  dance keeps the brain healthy.

I love the challenge of learning a new dance each course I take and I force myself to get way out of my comfort zone. 

How long have you been doing Burlesquercise?

6 yearsI registered for a level 1 class and I was on my way! Now I am in Level 5!

What is your age?

60

What would you say to someone who is considering taking a class?

I tell people to take a chance on these classes. You never know until you try! Nobody judges and it's truly a Sisterhood of dancing maniacs that love what they do! The teachers are fantastic, supportive and so much fun!
