Sweetpea's Playhouse: Burlesque Basics
8-week Series: April 1st - May 20
Tuesdays, 8:15-9:15pm at The Ritz Theater Studio
I was attracted to this art form for its combination of parody, sensuality, theatricality, glamour, and of course - dance. After a decade since my first peel and hundreds of shows later, I love it even more.
Let me share my performance perspective with you! In this 8-week series, you'll learn the basics of burlesque - with sauntering, struts & confident swag, pauses & stillness, bumps & grinds, shimmies & shakes, tease & appeal, peels & props, and even a few of my own signature moves. We'll touch upon the history (and a few of its trailblazing teasers), how to unabashedly unleash our "woo" for an audience of 1 or 1,000 - with intention, attention & energy projection, and flirt with the debatable differences between character and persona.
Invite your unique succulence, sensuality, and sexiness out to play! No burlesque or dance experience is necessary. All levels are encouraged, from bashful beginners to seasoned stage performers; whether you just desire more connection, comfort & confidence in your own body, wish to give a private show to your lover (or yourself in the mirror), or long to convince an entire audience that they ALL could be your lovers.
Classes will be geared toward all identities wishing to explore, accentuate, and perform sensuality. ALL genders, body types, and ages (over 16) are welcome. There is no nudity or undressing in this series.
Wear comfortable clothing that you'll feel sassy moving around in. Comfortable heels are encouraged.
$120 for the Series or $20 per Walk-In
