Van Ella Studios
In this brand new series, we invite students of any gender to explore masculine presenting burlesque in a fully guided, all encompassing curriculum. In an 8 week session, we will discuss burlesque ideas and act development, building a strong stage persona, and costuming effectively, as well as learning dance technique and choreography to become better movers and dancers, work as a group, and be stage ready. Students will be invited to perform at the next Van Ella Studios showcase, though participation is not mandatory.
In the first week, we will discuss act development and creating solid ideas. In weeks 2 through 5, students will be learning choreography and technique. In weeks 6 through 8, we will focus intensively on solo act creation. There will also be extra rehearsals scheduled for those interested.
Taught by Lola van Ella, Tanis Lee and very special guest instructors TBA
