This workshop will discuss the all important Look and Style that a burlesque performer decides on before going out on stage. We'll talk what has come before, what influences today, and how to find the Trick to your stage persona. This workshop is supplemented by live example performances with a guided tour to creating your burlesque performance. WE also goes in-depth determining Your Niche & Working With It (names, gimmicks, performance type) & understanding the history and differences among us.
White Elephant's divine professors shared with students their trials, tribulations, and triumphs in their six-year stint in burlesque and longer still time on stage and in the entertainment industry. Topics included technique, interpretation, and tricks of the trade so that the student--regardless of level of experience--could storm the stage with purpose and confidence.
