GroupTease (Winter 2019)
G1 | Group Choreography

Let's move together! Learn a fun group burlesque number from veteran instructor Gina Louise, who specializes in ensemble choreography for all levels to enjoy. Group performance opportunity, no experience required! All genders welcome!

GroupTease is divided into three sectIons: Choreography, Costume Creation, and Stage Readiness. The three-part series is an excellent precursor to creating a solo act, and the goal is to build dance skills, confidence, and community.

Wear comfortable dance clothing. If you wish, bring heels and long gloves to G1. Movement & wardrobe will be customized to fit the strengths and character of each individual in the group.

Students are welcome to register for any session, but only those who complete the entire G1-3 series are eligible to perform in our 2019 Student Showcase.

G1 | Group Choreography | Jan 6-Feb 24 | Sundays 2:30-4:00
G2 | Costume Creation | Mar 3-May 5 | Sundays 2:30-4:00
G3 | Get Stage Ready | May 19, June 2, 9 | Sundays 2:30-4:00

Gina Louise, co-founder of the Playful Peacock Academy, has found great joy in teaching the art of burlesque since 2005. Her warm and engaging teaching style welcomes all students, no matter what their background. A Minneapolis cabaret artist known for creating innovative events and ensemble performances since 2003, Gina is a producer, emcee, soloist, choreographer, and instructor. Of all her roles onstage and behind-the scenes, teaching is her favorite! Ms. Louise brings a penchant for classic glamour, a twist of kitsch, and a bit of the avant-garde to her projects, including workshops, festivals, fundraisers, and cabarets. She is the founder of The Minneapolis Burlesque Festival, The Ladyslippers, The Emporium of Frolics & Romps, and Kiss of Fire. She originated the Best of Midwest Burlesk Festival and The Peacock Showgirls, and was a founder of the award-winning Lili's Burlesque Revue. Gina has been honored to perform at The Burlesque Hall of Fame and stages across the Twin Cities.

The Playful Peacock, the first school in the region specializing in the art of burlesque, was founded by Ophelia Flame and Gina Louise, who have been performing together since 2003 and teaching workshops since 2005. The belief that there's a bit of showpony in all of us is the drive behind their mission: to teach burlesque technique, performance, and history while encouraging self-expression and body confidence. The Academy also offers performance opportunities, bachelorette parties, and special events. All are welcome!
