Experience it. Live it. Share it.

Experience it. Live it. Share it.

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.

"Through personal coaching packages and group lectures I teach people how to build their confidence through dancing."

- Teacher Noreen

What My Students Say

I started dancing because of a deal with Nikki, my girlfriend, who takes Chairlesque classes. During the class I was awkward, funny, and lost (I still am) and I noticed that it makes my girl happy. Seeing that smile on Nikki's face is enough to make me dance more. Thanks to Teach Noreen and Beast House for making our relationship more fun while keeping fit!

Dancing is not only a wonderful way to express yourself but also a fantastic spare time activity you can enjoy with your partner esp when you join Chairlesque Kings and Queens. We are very thankful to Noreen for starting us on this wonderful dance journey. She teaches through sensual routine and positive reinforcement and her love for dancing is infectious.

I understand what makes this class different among others. Chairlesque is more than a dance class. It is a community that helps people accept their true selves (men, women, lgbtqia).

Two years after being a student of Noreen in her chairlesque class at Beast House, I came to appreciate my body and became unapologetic to its flaws. I started to be connected to my sensuality, my confidence grew. Chairlesque has definitely changed my life in one way or another.
