Boylesque 101 6-Wk Performance Workshop Summer Session
Learn to create your very own Boylesque routine under the tutelage of gender bending Boylesque sensation, Miss(ter) Waxie Moon and the Man, the Myth, the Mustache, Ernie Von Schmaltz!
The famed original Burlesque 101 6-week course has been seen in "A Wink And A Smile", showing in theaters around the U.S. starting in May. The first class focusing exclusively on the Boylesque genre graduated in Late 09, and interest in the subsequent sessions has been overwhelming!
The course is co-taught by Waxie and Ernie, with guest appearances and lectures by local Boylesque performers.
Course fee includes Six group lessons, Five private lessons with Waxie Moon and or Ernie Von Schmaltz, Class 8x10, and a public graduation recital at the West Hall Theatre in the Oddfellows Building on Saturday October 26th! After graduating, there will be a student potluck where you will watch the video of your performance and decompress with your fellow students.
Students will learn the fundamentals of Burlesque history and style, develop a character and persona, and create, costume, and choreograph their own routine in a fully supported atmosphere. This course follows the same structure as the Burlesque 101, but the curriculum has been specially designed by Headmistress Indigo Blue and Waxie Moon to account for the masculine/male/boi/boy/fag/butch/tough/stud gendered representations that Boylesque can be comprised of. Persons of any gender, sex, affiliation identity and/or sexuality may apply for the class. The course will explore the multiplicities of meaning that "Boylesque" can have, and focus in particular on more masculine representations and identities.
Weekly group classes will be held Mondays from 6-8 pm in the West Hall of the Oddfellows Bldg on Capitol Hill starting on September 16th. Students must be available for one weekly half-hour private sessions during the following times: Mondays 8pm-10pm, Tuesdays, 2-5 or Wednesday 3-5.
