Workshop With Heather and Nia
BUTTER AND FILTH
8th July 5:00 to 8:30 PM
Butter & Filth is an 18 and up experience that utilizes Heather and Nia’s 35 years of combined background in art, gymnastics to construct an experience that revolutionizes how pole performance is taught, learned, and observed. Our primary interest is the accessibility of learning that Butter & Filth offers in a relaxed, fun space. We believe that accessibility is key in teaching, learning and interacting with others; thus, access is a primary tenet of Butter & Filth. Neither of
us has classical training in dance. Butter & Filth uses mental presence as a source of bodily knowledge.
BUTTER uses slow, serpentine transition to create exotic based works for stage in this 90 minute workshop. Desire, personal exploration, and vulnerability will take precedence in the Butter experience with a foundation of enduring seduction and delirium that soaks the entirety of your stage performance. A high premium is placed on simplicity and versatility of engagement with the intent of audience enchantment. Students of Butter will learn how hypnotic pace and sensual effortless movement can function as a compliment to their individual dance styles and goals. Improvisation takes priority Butter, with an emphasis on presence as the driving force of freestyle movement, anchored in attention to detail and accented musicality. Butter welcomes all levels of pole dancers and no prior experience is required. Attendees are encouraged to come dressed in costume, heels, hair, and makeup or anything that makes them feel stage ready and sexy.
7:00 to 8:30 pm
FILTH is a 90 minute workshop that embraces floor f*cking, adult only, sexy, seductive, obscenely crass, improper, not-for-the-faint-of-heart exotic pole and floor workshop geared toward creating improvised movement using your nasty mind as inspiration for executing a powerfully raunchy performance that’ll have ‘em clutching their pearls. Workshop attendees will learn tried and true exotic dance methods, such as heel clack and moral question, with a flare of brazen agency and ownership that will push your dance practice to the next level. Through the use of frank and raw language, FILTH aims to put you in control of a purposeful and sexy routine that says to hell with ladylike innocence. This workshop is perfect for pole dancers of all levels, shapes, sizes, genders, and especially those who are not easily offended. It is suggested that attendees wear multiple layers for striptease, heels, costume, glitter, makeup, or anything that makes them feel like a bad bitch. Not a sexy style pole dancer? That’s ok. The methods taught in this workshop function to rid you of stage anxiety and empower your heart by placing the magic of feminine performance precisely where it belongs.
