TWO GREAT WORKSHOPS – FROM THE NEW YORK SCHOOL OF BURLESQUE!
1. RADICAL GLAMOUR WITH JO “BOOBS” WELDON
JULY 16, 2PM-3PM:
Which is the realest thing–classic glamourous burlesque, or neo-burlesque with a topical twist? Jo would not be passionate about burlesque if it were only one or the other. However, this class is about finding what’s rebellious and individualistic in our attraction to glamour and to the icons of mid-twentieth century burlesque striptease. Through exercises, discussion, and examinations of costume and bodily presentation, Jo will describe why she believes that objectification and display as it manifests in burlesque, circus, drag, fetish, and performance art is more than the search for another pretty face.

Whether a story-based number or a classic tease, a fall-down-laughing comedy act or a slow seduction, a character exploration, an acrobatic extravaganza, or all six at once, a good arc can be the difference between an audience liking your act… and loving it.
