Goddess Life Burlesque with Melissa Mylitta
Goddess Life Burlesque is a dance class and more! It is a place to learn the art of classic burlesque dance moves and choreography, learn sexy stretches, and empower your most body positive affirmations! But, most importantly, it is a place for women to come to celebrate their curves, restore healthy relationship to their form and relax inside of their sensuality. It is an invitation to explore areas of expression, flirty, fiery, sensual or downright dirty! All of these aspects of our sexual nature are wholesome and welcome in the space of GoddeLife Burlesque with Mylitta!
“My mom says I ‘came out dancing’ ! It must be true… I entered the world feet first, and can not remember a time when I did not love to dance! For sure, in my adult life, fitness, dance and the healing arts have been the focus of my personal and professional development. In 1994, while working for the U.S. Air Force as a Project Manager and moonlighting as a Step Aerobics Instructor, I stumbled across Belly Dance at a local book store. I will never forget the enchanted feeling as I was called to the back of the store by sounds of exotic music and feminine laughter.
As I pulled back the beaded curtain, I was literally transported into a world of Feminine Dance and Spirituality. While exploring the art of Belly Dance along side my studies of Feminine Spirituality and Healing Arts, I awoke the Goddess Within! In 2000 I retired from my Government job to pursue a professional life of Healing and Performing Arts.
For the past decade (plus) I have woven together my work as a Reiki Master, Polarity Therapist, Shaman, Dancer, Yogini and Priestess, to create movement classes that are holistic, sexy, uplifting and fun! Honoring the Goddess in each woman is an honor and a joy! I am so excited to bring my work as a GoddessLife Certified Burlesque Instructor to One Spirit Dance and Fitness”- Melissa (Mylitta) Benajmin
