Modern Burlesque is a multidisciplinary art form and developing strong acts for performance involves many artistic aspects in order to create individual style. Over the course of the class students will explore the different aspects that go into the creation of an act such as choreography, music choice, story creation, character development, and costuming basics with the goal of having an act ready to one day bring to stage. This class is a melding of movement exercises, lecture, peer discussion, acting games, in class performance, and hands on crafting used to provide those new to Burlesque and performers looking for ways spark creativity and bring act ideas to life. All genders welcome!
