Burlesque BOOM is a dance based fitness class that incorporates cardio fitness along with burlesque dance choreography.  It is a class that women of all ages and fitness capabilities feel comfortable participating in!  The unique way that Burlesque Boom has been developed allows for the participant to control the intensity of their workout based on their personal level of fitness.  It is a 60 minute class that flies by and always leaves you smiling and giggling by the end!


Sarah Torkoly was born on Dec 30, 1988.  Sarah has been in the dance industry since she was two years old her family fueled her desire to dance with their own extensive experience.  The disciplines that Sarah has studied vary from Ballet to Hip Hop and everything in between.  Her dance and choreography career has taken her to cities such as New York and L.A. as well as hit T.V. shows such as “So You Think You Can Dance Canada”!  It was Sarah’s desire to combine dance and fitness that originally started Burlesque Boom in the fall of 2010 as a class she offered at her dance studio. Sarah’s drive behind her business decisions comes from her belief that every woman can take a class that will make them feel confident and sexy, while giving them the health benefits of a workout that is more fun than work.  She now shares her time between her two businesses, one being Burlesque Boom and her other successful business Dance Code Studio Inc. which is home to Burlesque Boom headquarter.  When she is not dancing or teaching Burlesque Boom, Sarah can be found hitting the slopes of The Rockies snowboarding with close friends.



The average workday for most people has them driving to work at 7:00 am and then getting home at 5:30pm.  By the time dinner is cooked, served and cleaned up, kids are taken care of and all of the shopping is completed there is little to no time, energy or motivation to exercise.  This is the most common complaint from the majority of our clients.  The solution that we have come up with is to bring the workout to their place of work.  Whether it is an empty board- room, classroom, gymnasium, retail sales floor or a corporate fitness facility we will make it work.  Some of our clients prefer morning classes before the workday begins, others prefer a mid-day break and a Burlesque BOOM class a few days a week is an awesome way to finish off the day.  Take care of your most important asset; your people.  A small investment in their health and wellness will make a huge impact in their work and more importantly their lives.
