WHAT IS HEELS TECH?
Safely challenge yourself and expand your heels dance technique in this intensive class. Dive in with our strength and skills building warm-up, expand your repertoire of Heels dance movements, and challenge yourself to execute dance technique in heels. This class may also occasionally involve workshopping choreography for the purpose of developing artistry. Our certified teachers cultivate a supportive, inclusive environment where you feel safer to step outside your comfort zone and expand your capabilities as a heels dance technician. These classes are taught on the traditional lands of the (lək̓ʷəŋən) Lekwungen Peoples, known as the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations.
Luminesque Dance is the heels dance program and show, guaranteed to make you glow! Our mission is to provide expertly-designed heels dance training and professional dance productions that serve as an empowering, safer space to explore and celebrate underrepresented expressions of self and sexuality. We have locations all across the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples (AKA: Vancouver, North Vancouver, Squamish + Victoria). Our team is a collective of 40+ dance instructors, community builders, and trauma-informed educators.
Our PROGRESS program guides beginner to advanced dancers through the context, technique, and performance of heels dance in weekly 2-hour classes, divided into 3 levels, for 5-month terms. The cast of 400+ dancers then celebrates their growth and connection through an epic production performed for an audience of thousands of supportive fans. PROGRESS does not require dance experience or an audition to join – everybody (19+) is welcome! Come to our next show STARDUST on Feb 11 at the Capital Ballroom.
We offer weekly Heels Tech and Heels Choreo classes as additional cross-training, or for those who aren’t able to commit to the full program. Your first drop-in class is always free!
