Unmata ITS Level 1&2 @ Hot Pot Studios
Dec 14 @ 10:45 am – 11:45 am
Unmata ITS Level 1&2 @ Hot Pot Studios | Sacramento | California | United States

WHAT IS UNMATA ITS?
ITS stands for Improvisational Tribal Style. This style of dance is a non verbal form of communication where groups can dance together using a specific vocabulary of movements communicating the timing and variations of the vocabulary. We like to compare Improvisational Tribal Style (ITS) to a language. When learning a new language, you have to learn the root words before forming a sentence.  Because of the similarity in learning UNMATA ITS to learning a new language, we recommend that students complete the UNMATA ITS Level 1 vocabulary before taking other levels of UNMATA ITS classes at Hot Pot Studios. For more details, check out the official ITS website.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? Wear something you can move and be comfortable in. We will dance the whole hour, so be prepared to sweat. Common gear is yoga pants, tank tops or sports bras. For your feet: barefoot, socks or dance shoes. Hot Pot has a hard wood floor, so no street shoes please.

WHERE SHOULD I PARK? Parking around the studio is metered and goes till 10pm. There are also garages within walking distance of the studio. You do not want to park in the lot behind the studio, as this is private parking and you will be towed.

If you have any other questions, feel free to contact us.

$10 drop in (cash only)
Hot Pot Studios (1614 K St – Street Parking)

This class is focused on whipping you into performer’s shape while strengthening your foundation of rhythm, projection and connection to your body for translation to stage. It is 100% A-okay (and expected) for you to listen to your body and take things at your own pace while still engaging and having fun with the group. The choreography portion of this class will change each week, exploring different styles and elements of burlesque performance while building an overarching catalog of movement you will be able to master and grow from with time.

Current, future and non-performers are welcome – this is an all level class (primarily beginning/intermediate), meant to be both physically and mentally challenging, so students of all backgrounds walk away feeling the sizzle!

BRING:
– Yoga mat
– Towel
– Water bottle
– An open mind
– Willingness to werk!

WEAR:
Comfortable clothing that does not limit your mobility (yoga pants or booty shorts, tank top or sports bra, etc).

Sneakers (for warm up) or bare feet preferred – you can bring a pair of sturdy or dance heels you are comfortable moving in for choreography if you want!

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Jay Siren has been an event producer, emcee and burlesque performer for over a decade. Founding the troupe the Sizzling Sirens Burlesque Experience in 2008, she has performed and curated entertainment for stages from Sacramento to Las Vegas and beyond. In general, Jay believes that if you dream it you can do it in burlesque! Creating space for students to explore their sensuality, personality and energy through the lens of burlesque entertainment has become one of the most fulfilling aspects of her career, and she looks forward to bringing that same ethic to Hot Pot Studios every Tuesday night!
Learn more about Jay’s current projects at www.thesirenevents.com

NOTE: Due to the sensual nature of this style of performance, non-participant observers are strictly prohibited, to ensure the most comfortable and encouraging space for burlesque exploration possible. Any human 18+ that arrives with an open mind and willingness to let loose and SIZZLE is welcome to attend!

WHAT IS UNMATA ITS?
ITS stands for Improvisational Tribal Style. This style of dance is a non verbal form of communication where groups can dance together using a specific vocabulary of movements communicating the timing and variations of the vocabulary. We like to compare Improvisational Tribal Style (ITS) to a language. When learning a new language, you have to learn the root words before forming a sentence.  Because of the similarity in learning UNMATA ITS to learning a new language, we recommend that students complete the UNMATA ITS Level 1 vocabulary before taking other levels of UNMATA ITS classes at Hot Pot Studios. For more details, check out the official ITS website.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? Wear something you can move and be comfortable in. We will dance the whole hour, so be prepared to sweat. Common gear is yoga pants, tank tops or sports bras. For your feet: barefoot, socks or dance shoes. Hot Pot has a hard wood floor, so no street shoes please.

WHERE SHOULD I PARK? Parking around the studio is metered and goes till 10pm. There are also garages within walking distance of the studio. You do not want to park in the lot behind the studio, as this is private parking and you will be towed.

Foundations class with Jay Siren @ HotPot Studios, Sacramento

18+
$10 drop in (cash only)
Hot Pot Studios (1614 K St – Street Parking)

This class is focused on whipping you into performer’s shape while strengthening your foundation of rhythm, projection and connection to your body for translation to stage. It is 100% A-okay (and expected) for you to listen to your body and take things at your own pace while still engaging and having fun with the group. The choreography portion of this class will change each week, exploring different styles and elements of burlesque performance while building an overarching catalog of movement you will be able to master and grow from with time.

Current, future and non-performers are welcome – this is an all level class (primarily beginning/intermediate), meant to be both physically and mentally challenging, so students of all backgrounds walk away feeling the sizzle!

BRING:
– Yoga mat
– Towel
– Water bottle
– An open mind
– Willingness to werk!

WEAR:
Comfortable clothing that does not limit your mobility (yoga pants or booty shorts, tank top or sports bra, etc).

Sneakers (for warm up) or bare feet preferred – you can bring a pair of sturdy or dance heels you are comfortable moving in for choreography if you want!

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Jay Siren has been an event producer, emcee and burlesque performer for over a decade. Founding the troupe the Sizzling Sirens Burlesque Experience in 2008, she has performed and curated entertainment for stages from Sacramento to Las Vegas and beyond. In general, Jay believes that if you dream it you can do it in burlesque! Creating space for students to explore their sensuality, personality and energy through the lens of burlesque entertainment has become one of the most fulfilling aspects of her career, and she looks forward to bringing that same ethic to Hot Pot Studios every Tuesday night!
Learn more about Jay’s current projects at www.thesirenevents.com

NOTE: Due to the sensual nature of this style of performance, non-participant observers are strictly prohibited, to ensure the most comfortable and encouraging space for burlesque exploration possible. Any human 18+ that arrives with an open mind and willingness to let loose and SIZZLE is welcome to attend!
