With a background in many different styles of dance; ranging from hip-hop to improvisational movement, Lakiah offers versatility and vision in her movement style. Dancing is one of her greatest passions and favorite modes of personal and creative expression.
Over the last 3 years Lakiah has helped to assist and facilitate Madam Steele Burlesque classes.

Marketing/ Class Assistant
Amy Bohannan is a Marketing Consultant and Assistant for Madam Steele’s School of Sensual Arts. She joined Madam Steele as a student two years ago, with no formal dance training but an enthusiasm for learning. She now considers sensual movement practice a foundation of her self-healing practice. She is an artist and writer, constantly working to expose her truth.
She plays the role of providing support to students, being a member of this community, and leading by example. She still considers herself a student, assigned to share her ability to witness and mentor your movement practice. She is also the woman who handles all of the technical stuff. She looks forward to joining you on the dance floor to explore and expose.
I’m interested in the deep sh*t =) I am interested in strengthening the connections we have to ourselves, so that we may connect more with others. Having been a nomad the last 10 years, I have a strong appreciation for the feeling of being ‘home’ in the body - supported. Wherever our bodies are at, whatever they look like, they are ours - our temple, our vehicle for experience. The more we can respect, honor, and work with them, the more we can cultivate a relationship, a grounding, and a sense of home within ourselves.
From this foundation, I like to guide a creative flow exploring different shapes both classical and alternative. A self-proclaimed anatomy nerd, I focus on corporeal connection through breath and detailed suggestions to draw attention ‘home’. With a balance of movement and stillness I hope to create a space in which you feel connected to your body <3
