10 weeks*; a guide to making your first burlesque act
*Plus 1hr private session for costuming and 1hr private session for choreography coaching.
Would you like to try your hand at burlesque performance but aren't sure where to start? We are here to offer you the tools you'll need to make a successful debut into the world of theatrical striptease. In this 10-week course, we will build your knowledge of the art of burlesque from the ground up. The session starts with the foundational elements of striptease and basic burlesque/neo-burlesque theory, and ends with the guided construction of a solo burlesque act for each student. Students in the class will be given the opportunity to perform their new creation in a showcase at the end of the session. Students are expected to complete weekly homework assignments, 7 students maximum, previous experience required (other burlesque class, volunteer work in the burlesque community, or other movement training) or extensive experience in another field of performance. <<Before registering for this class please send your name and a short description of your level of experience to firstname.lastname@example.org>>
Experience required. Taught by The Lady Josephine and BonBon Bombay
