Dancing in Character Workshop with Lady Jack
Lady Jack | Lindsey Marks presents her Dancing in Character class to the Seattle burlesque and performing arts community while she's in town.
WHEN: Saturday, 8/24/13, 1 pm - 2:15 pm
WHERE: Fred Wildlife Refuge in Capitol Hill http://fredwildliferefuge.com/
Parking is sometimes tricky near Fred but we've found the Seattle Central Community College parking lot at the corner of Pine and Harvard to always have availability and it's just $5. You have to walk a few blocks north to Fred, but think of it as a warm up for class.
*Thank you to Jonny Boy for allowing us to use his new personal training space at Fred.
WHAT TO WEAR: Something easy to move in, we will likely be barefoot, so heels aren't needed.
DANCING IN CHARACTER is a fun exploration of the elements of developing characterization through movement and dance choreography. Students learn a set choreography, and layer on three distinct characters to see how subtle changes in movement can communicate big shifts in character to an audience. Students will learn the concepts of character intention and tactic, as well as Lady Jack's three elements of character base: Stature, Strut and Gesture and how to pull those elements through all your movement.
Lady Jack's style is eclectic and spans everything from the most elegantly risque Burlesque stripteases to the avant garde intrigue of conceptual performance art. Her work as a a performance artist has been honored with invitations to perform for TEDx Midwest 2010 and 2011, the event Evermore with James Taylor, The MCA Chicago, and ArtFlux San Francisco. Her work is seen at many other special events throughout the Chicago, where she is often commissioned to create performance pieces specific to the evening and to provide other entertainers for the night.
With a degree in theatre, and extensive training in many styles of dance, Lady Jack is a sought after instructor in the field of Burlesque. She teaches Burlesque classes, private lessons and choreography and tours with her professional workshops "Dancing in Character" and "Improvisation for Burlesque."
