Chairlesque is a unique dance style founded by Noreen Claire Efondo in 2017. Inspired by the bold and playful character of burlesque performances, coupled with the technicality of chair dancing, it showcases flexibility, balance, and core strength. Through the art of Chairlesque, students are also able to develop confidence and a deeper appreciation of one’s self through the movements, exercises, and the supportive environment of each class.
Because of its distinctive style, Chairlesque is quickly growing in popularity and has been showcased in several countries around Asia. And more than just a dance style, Chairlesque has now become a community.
