On Feb 7th I was so excited to teach my Bringing Sexy Back Masterclass in London! I was teaching in a sandwich with the fab Alexis Southall which was a big honour for me, even though she is so down to earth she laughes at me when I tell her this.
In my Bringing Sexy Back masterclass I bust the myths of what it means to be sexy onstage. Being seen as sexy is considered really important to the mainstream media's idea of what it means to be a woman, but how it's presented just makes a lot of us feel really alienated. It's about the hair, or the boobs, or the endless legs, or the photoshopped body. When we think of sexy dancing we think of hyper sexualised dance: Rhianna wiping her crotch on stuff, Britney being groped by hunky back up dancers, that kind of thing. I love showing women that dancing sexily or having a sexy dance persona has NOTHING TO DO with any of that stuff. It's so much more accessible and a part of who we are as real people. It's not a state of doing ,it's a state of being, as is most awesome performance stuff.
I was so pleased to get so much good feedback from the class - women telling me that they had no idea how to "be" sexy feeling like they finally saw how they could be, ladies telling me that the whole being sexy thing was less scary now, and lots of peeps happy to go home with a bunch of tools and exercises to play with to up level their dancing skill. Yay!
