Aradia Fitness Calgary is excited to welcome Fifi Fantome as our guest instructor for December! It’s been a long time since we have been able to bring in international talent (although originally Canadian), so it feels extra special to be offering workshops and instructions by this Berlin-based queer performance artist.

Fifi has performed all over Europe, Canada, and the United States in circus, theater, and burlesque shows. As a performance artist, Fifi aims to mock stereotypes of gender, challenge cliches of the sexualized woman, and use the body as a tool to express the abnormal.

We are hosting two workshops – one for Lyra and one for Burlesque. Burlesque is all levels, and we highly recommend it as something fun and new to try in our studio. For the Lyra enthusiasts, the workshop is choreography and performance-based. Even if you haven’t considered performing or creating routines, this workshop will help your movement and sequencing.

Lyra Choreography / Performance Workshop

Dec 4th @ 1:15pm

In this Aerial Hoop course, you will learn a combination of elegance and flexibility with strength and the tools to express yourself. We will work on a small piece of Lyra choreography and how to perform and create an act. We will work with improvisation, character development, and using the tools of movement and hoop language to create a performance.

Sign Up

Level: Intermediate to Advanced (Beginners can come if they have some knowledge of movement on the hoop and strong basics)

Burlesque Workshop

Dec 10th @ 6:00pm

This movement-based class is a workout inspired by burlesque movements and dance. Think booty ballet meets cardio floorwork. Here we will integrate fun, and sexy Burlesque moves into a workout. This class is perfect for any experience or level. You do not need to be a dancer or have experience working with your body. We will tap into finding your sensuality and exploring it in a positive and uplifting environment. The class is about boosting confidence, education, and learning burlesque choreography.
