Join New York Burlesque Superstar Jezebel Express in this amazing 1.5 hour workshop!
This workshop will teach performers strategies for making their personalities shine onstage. In a world of Bettie-bangs and cinched corsets, it’s important to stand out, make an instant impact, and invite the audience to get to know you intimately!
In this class, we’ll discuss a variety of strategies for creating an onstage character, starting with how to "Be yourself, but BIGGER”, and leading into ways to create an act-specific character that transports the audience to another world.
We’ll talk about how to use archetypes to your advantage, and how to decide which props are crucial to your character and story (and which ones you can skip!)
We’ll discover strategies for creating a signature dance vocabulary, and step outside our comfort zones by identifying the ways we usually present ourselves to the audience… and then trying on different approaches. You’ll leave class with new tools for building character, telling a story and making your mark on the audience.
This class is a mix of conversation and dancing, so wear comfortable clothing you can move in.
This class is suitable for performers at any level, but people who have created at least one full burlesque act will benefit most.
All ages over the age of 18 years, sizes, genders and orientations are welcome. Let’s dance!
