  • Brandi King

    Studio vavavoom is welcoming and encouraging to every body. There is no age, size, gender etc that isn’t welcomed or encouraged. I’m in my forties and plus size and have been dancing with them for the last six years. I love the friends I have made and that I’ve learned to move my body in a way that makes me feel good.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Each session is 8 weeks long, one hour per week. New students should register via the site, for Level One Moves, regardless of dance background. If a student is deemed too advanced, we will place them accordingly. Our brand of burlesque is cabaret heavy, pulling from a jazz, bellydance, modern and theatrical background. The stylized movements are unique to VaVaVoom so even experienced dancers will find this style unique and challenging.

The owner/founder of Studio VaVaVoom has been dancing since 1998. The instructors of the studio have a combined history of a myriad of dance styles and theatre heavy experience.
