Aria Delanoche:
Choices! Creative Costuming &
How to Leave them Gagging…

“Choices! Creative Costuming & How to Leave them Gagging” is a lecture-style workshop designed to help you make more intentional costuming choices & create fierce, gag-worthy burly looks. Presented in the cheeky form of Aria’s Ten Commandments of Costuming, the class covers theoretic approaches to maximizing the effectiveness of a burlesque costume. Students learn about color theory, character refining processes, juxtaposition, and more while guided by an example-rich PowerPoint presentation.

Every choice we make in the creation process, from vision to design to performance, is an opportunity to express our character, emphasize our movement, and present jaw-dropping dazzle. Learn how to guide yourself to smart choices and make your costumes werk for you!

Bring: a notebook and pen so you may scribble these secrets. There is no movement, so wear what you please. You can also come prepared with questions about your individual costuming conundrums for the Q&A after class.

Jo ‘Boobs’ Weldon

Location: Academia Jangada
Schönhauser Allee 36
10435 Berlin

Jo ‘Boobs’ Weldon:
Perfecting the Twirl

This class is a wild party of skill-building!

Class level: All. Beginners will learn, experienced performers will improve.

Tassel-twirling is one of the most unique elements of burlesque. Are you making the most of it? Avoiding it because you’re afraid you can’t do it, or because it seems trite? Trying to figure out how to put your own twist on it?Wondering how to be more creative with it? Wondering why some of the moves aren’t working for you?

We will cover the physics of basic tassel-twirling techniques in class, so if you’re a brand new twirler, you can still get a lot from this. If you’re an experienced twirler who still has a few issues, you’ll get even more benefits! Come in and learn how to do your best twirl, how to choose or make pasties that make twirling easier, which shoes can make a difference, how to incorporate tassel twirling into musicality, and why sometimes your twirl just won’t go.

Be prepared to put tassels on your bare chest and behind.

Bring: tassels if you’ve got ’em! Pasties will be available to borrow in class, but if you already have pasties, definitely bring them, and if you can, bring more than one pair.

Sweet Pea

Location: Academia Jangada
Schönhauser Allee 36
10435 Berlin

 

Sweetpea:
Floor F*ckery

Floorwork gets you gigs! Audiences love it!
Sweetpea brings houses down with a combination of perfectly executed high-energy moves and luscious slow burn, and she is bringing a rockin’ workshop to Berlin! Students will do a warmup to loosen and free their limbs, then learn how to move smoothly to the floor, make graceful transitions, do impressive tricks, and return to standing with apparent ease. Though beginners will benefit from this workshop, some of the moves may be more challenging than others, and this class is highly suitable for intermediate students.

Methodology: 10 minutes warmup and stretching, 15 minutes minutes exploring transition options to the floor, 15 minutes floor fuckery, 10 minutes exploring transitions to standing, 15 minutes of small combinations from the first 3 segments, and then 10 minutes of power move tricks. 10 minutes cool down/stretch.

Objective: Students will learn 3-5 different ways each of: getting their own bodies to safely and sexily transition to the floor, ways to play with the floor that look and feel good for them, and ways to return to standing. Students will additionally learn how to safely execute an impressive “trick” on the floor that will cater to their own ability/mobility, with considerations for hip, hamstring, and knee safety.
