Motion Mill & Suzanna Molnár
Motion Mill is an international wellness and well-being brand that makes, and inspires the mastery of, meaningful self-expression. Launched in February 2019 by founder and director, Suzanna Molnár, it currently runs two burlesque companies, burlesque beginner courses, private events, hen and birthday parties, UK and international workshops and retreats.
Born in Hungary, Suzanna was just three year’s old when she started to dance. She began competing at the National Championships at age seven, and won several first places in the Nationals, before finishing third at the World Championship.
At the age of 18, she was hired as a solo dancer on the European Tour of the Broadway Dance Company for a year. After this, she moved to Asia to become a successful soloist amongst 200 other dancers in Everland, South Korea, one of the world’s largest theme parks.
Suzanna completed the IDTA freestyle dance teacher qualification in the UK and gained her MA in Dance Technique Pedagogy at Middlesex University. The subject of her final thesis was ‘Dancing through emotions’ which is the primary focus of Suzanna’s interest in dance and very much reflected through her teaching style. She is passionate about the fact that dance can change lives.
Her previous role was Head of Commercial & World Dance at City Academy, where she worked for seven years and started out as an elementary dance teacher. During this period Suzanna launched two burlesque companies - both comprised of women who are professional executives by day and theatrical showgirls by night!
They have to-date delivered four highly successful showcases at The Hippodrome in London’s West End and at Clapham Grand. These shows present a unique offering: a vibrant two-hour showcase, on a globally acclaimed stage, where the artists perform real burlesque dance technique, in a dazzling display with show-stopping costumes, seducing the audience – and all without shedding a cloth!
Burlesque continues to experience a real renaissance. And we’ve recently seen an exceptional focus on female freedom of expression as a result of the ‘Me Too movement.’ At Motion Mill Arts we practice a more traditional cabaret style burlesque that takes inspiration from the original burlesque acts that centred around tease and little touch of comedy. We don’t take our clothes off but we’re not afraid to show a little skin!
Motion Mill runs adult dance classes mostly in central London.
