BURLESQUE DANCE INSTRUCTOR
Katrina Fausey is a Dance Instructor/Choreographer based in the Los Angeles area. With over 12 years of dance and teaching experience, she has taught at many studios throughout Los Angeles and the bay area. She’s performed with a competitive Jazz team, a professional dance crew, performed at Disneyland and on stages of her own making. She also has choreographed for local musical theatre stage productions including pieces for Theatre West’s West Fest event and for up and coming artist Kimbe Renee for her Northern California Tour including a Columbia Records showcase. Most recently, she choreographed a seductive dance scene in a feature film that will be reaching Netflix viewers in late 2017.
Her passion for Burlesque blossomed in late 2010, where she began performing at local shows in the Bay Area. She developed a stage persona, Fannie Sinclair. Her style tends to have a jazzy, Broadway flair, but can vary into other facets of Burlesque and the art of tease. After performing and developing a new found confidence in herself, she wanted to give back to the community of women that lift each other up.
Katrina’s (aka Fannie’s) classes are geared toward body positivism and bringing women together – to build confidence and feel sexy in their own skin. Her students are invited to wear whatever is comfortable, but encouraged to take chances and remember to love ones self. Her students have the opportunity to perform in showcases a few times a year, but it is not a requirement. The basis of the class is to develop skills in burlesque movement, confidence, and to get a shimmying good workout all the while. Come dance with her and see what its all about.
