Do you ever wonder what makes an act go from OK to Wow! Why are some acts more successful then others? And once you have an act what are the expectations of professional bookers? In this practical course The House of Burlesque will take you step by step through the process of putting together your very own act from start to finish in six weeks. Beginning with just your concept each week you will add to your act, learn tips to help you, receive feedback and at the end have a showcase opportunity to show your work. The course will also cover what goes on backstage and give valuable information about what is expected of you off stage at a professional show. This course is suitable for all styles of burlesque and looks to develop the artist's individuality.
The course will cover:
Music Choices and Research

Students will be asked to come to the course with a concept in mind and develop their act in realtime as the course progresses. The course is also suitable for artists wishing to rework and redevelop acts already in their repertoire.
