12pm – 1pm: Lunch
Break for lunch! Pack your own or walk to any of the close locations for food. We’re in the heart of Hillcrest with lots of delicious food options nearby.

1-1:30pm: Showgirl Stretch w/ Valentina
It’s going to be a long day of movement, let’s get into our bodies, breathe through our tightness and stetch it out. This class will prep you to work on your side splits and wheel / bridge pose, with variations.

1:30-2:3pm: Polynesian Isolations & Grace w/ Fou Fou LaRoux
Learn to isolate your top from your bottom with smoothness and grace! This workshop will teach you the fundamentals of Polynesian dance; incorporating Tahitian, Hawaiian, and Maori movements. There will be booty shaking, swaying, and shapin’! These movements will help you loosen the hips and allow more exaggerated movements in your burlesque performances. The skills learned here can help enhance ALL of your dance endeavors, not only in burlesque, but also in belly dance, and even hip hop. Learning to isolate sections of the body creates a dynamic of illusion and focus. When this is combined with the smoother movements from these cultures, it can create a a very fluid and voluptuous edge to any burlesque number.

2:30-3:30pm: Curls & Cat Eyes w/ Kinki Kalypso
This workshop will entail learning the basics of curling your own hair with a flat iron and/or curling iron, as well as tips and tricks to mastering the cat eye. Tools needed will be hairbrush, rat tail comb, duck tail or butterfly clips, working hairspray, heat protectant, curl pins, (encouraged but not necessary) curling iron and/or flat iron (must be no larger than one inch) and your favorite liquid eyeliner. We will go over what type of products to use to prep and work with the hair as well as techniques and direction for curl patterns and proper heat setting for different hair types. We all love a good cat eye, so I will go over my personal techniques to achieving that dramatic winged eyeliner.

3:30-4:30pm: All About That Face w/ Emeraude LaStarr
You’ve dialed in your choreography. Your costume is bedazzled to perfection. You’re ready to tell your story. Whether you’re performing for an intimate gathering of 30 or a theater filled with 300, your goal is to engage your audience. Aside from eye contact, how do you, the performer make that connection? This workshop is designed to allow each participant a safe environment in which to explore their individual emotional range and relationship to an audience through facial expressions and body language. In addition to facial expressions we will discuss and participate in Mind Body activities that cover various topics including emotional comfort zones, sensuality, energy, breath, touch, and composure. This workshop will benefit all performance artists – beginners to seasoned!

4:30-5:30pm: Sensual Healing with Luna Divine
Become more present with your awareness of your physical body and all it’s beauty. This yoga inspired burlesque workshop is a practice in self-love and self-acceptance. We’ll tap into our sensuality with a warm up focused on igniting your sacral and heart chakras and move into a very slow and sultry burlesque routine, all levels are welcome! Let’s become more sensually awake, you deserve to heal your mind and body!

This immersive day is meant to give you a variety of offerings that will build your burlesque, dance and performance repetoire. The funds raised from this day of workshops will go towards travel, costumes and marketing for the Vaudeville Vixen Showgirl Troupe. Spend the day with us and allow us to each give you a glimpse into our unique strengths!
