WORKSHOP: Exploring Masculinity in Burlesque
This workshop welcomes gentleman performers and potentially aspiring performers, as well as ladies and all genders who wish to explore masculine shades in their performance and/or process. How can a burlesque performer work to create a truly male counterpart to this historically feminine art form? How can we balance playfulness, elaborate theatricality, comedy, drama, and/or clever inventiveness, while invoking legitimate masculine sex appeal?

The most captivativating  ladies of Burlesque history have defined their own ideas of feminine identity, and Jett will propose ways to find inspiration from them and workshop how to translate that inspiration to exploit, exaggerate, challenge, and reimagine masculinity and seductive manpower. You will be guided through exercises to stimulate interpretations of masculinity from stereotypes to the extraordinary, thereby empowering the vitally important process of twisting male gender roles in ways you never imagined. Please bring notetaking materials and a childlike sense of play.

About the Instructor:
JETT ADORE  is the LaBron James of Burlesque and the sexiest, biggest, most talented star on the male burlesque circuit. (Playgirl Magazine). "Jett's artistic, playful, sexy, scandalous, and sophisticated performances are male striptease at it's finest." Known for his epicly theatrical performances, he has headlined in some of the largest Burlesque shows and festivals around the globe. He was named the worlds Most Innovative performer by the Las Vegas Burlesque Hall of Fame.

He is the starring male performer in Dita Von Teese's many world tours. He created, directs, co-produces and stars in his male-burlesque show Diamond Studs. He is one of the Stage Door Johnnies, the world-renowned male burlesque trio, who have starred in their own many long-running shows in Chicago, debuted in NYC with Liza Minnelli and Alan Cumming, toured worldwide, and were awarded Worlds Best Burlesque Group 2011 (Burlesque Hall of Fame), Artists of the Year (The Burlesque Innovation Guild), and Worlds Top 10 Performers (21st Century Burlesque).

In addition to Jetts burlesque performance, with degrees in acting and musical theatre, Jett has been a professional actor in theatre, film, and television for over 20 years. From a base of the extensive Stanislovski technique of acting, Jett has discovered ways to break down the Science of Stage Presence, to define it and uncover its elusive secrets, and has created his own methods and exercises by which to fully exude it, specifically within the theatre of burlesque.

THE TWIN CITIES BURLESQUE ACADEMY, (formerly Playful Peacock) the first school of its kind in the Twin Cities, was founded by Ophelia Flame and Gina Louise, who have been performing together since 2003 and teaching burlesque 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, welcoming students of all levels and backgrounds. The Academy offers performance opportunities, bachelorette parties & special events.
