About the workshops...

ACTING YOUR ACT — Storytelling Through Burlesque w/ Ula Uberbusen

Acting and Improv skills applied to both neo and classic burlesque

Improve your act and make your performances unforgettable! Drawing on her extensive training in acting, theatre and dance, Üla teaches the art of storytelling through the medium of burlesque. Many great dancers do beautiful routines that are lacking that special “something” that make them extraordinary. Using techniques found in her mentor’s book, “The Actor As Storyteller,” this workshop focuses on acting and specificity of movement to form a clear narrative – skills that will put your act over the top. Open to everyone. Please bring a notebook and wear clothes and shoes for comfortable movement.

 
CHOREOGRAPHY 101 w/ Rosie Cheeks

Making choreography easy, step by step

You spent hours rhinestoning the costume, and you've finally found the perfect music... now what? In this class, Rosie will walk you through the basics of the choreographic process, to help you achieve your ultimate vision. Please bring pen, paper, and even your music if you've got something you would like to work on!

Please wear clothes and heels you can move in. Open to everyone.
