How to do signature moves from the best burlesque dancers.

Okay, I'm here with Jill and Jess, and we're going to show you a little combination that a lot of the best burlesque performers use. We're going to start with a twirl in our hands using our boa. Okay? So you're twirling in. Alright, so making the boa go nice and around using our wrists. We're going to do this four times, so here we go. We're going to go. One, two, three, four. Good. So we're working out boa. After that our arms are going to come up, then we're going to slowly come down and pet your boa. Good. So the arms come up and our hands slide down petting the boa. Very good. Putting that together, we have from the beginning: one, two, three, four up, five, six, seven, eight. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven eight.

Now we're going to incorporate our knees. We're going to start with the right knee. Every time you twirl, you switch knees, so you're going to go right, left, right, left. Good, let's try that again. Right, left, right, left. Good. Now we're going to add the arms. Knee comes up to the right, arms come up, knees stay there, slowly transitioning to the left knee as your hand slowly comes down and you press down and stick your little booty out. Okay? Good.

Let's put that together using our knees. Here we go. A one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Very good. We're going to do it a little faster. Five, six, seven, eight, a one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Very good.

Those are some signature moves from the best burlesque dancers.
