Anja Pavlova: Burlesque Musicality
We all use music in our acts, and we all agree that a well-selected tune can make a whole lot of difference. But how do we choose this music and how do we work with it to create magic and excitement for our audience? How does it affect everything we do on stage? In this class we listen to a lot of music and discover what is the most exciting and what is the most sensuous sound and how to make even a simple glove peel into a Hollywood blockbuster.

This class is best suited to those with previous burlesque experience who want to deepen their understanding of music.

Kiki Deville: Owning your Voice for the Stage
Do you have something to say? Do you have something to sing?
Does your mouth not seem to work at the same time as your brain?
Does your mouth say one thing and your body say something else? Sometimes it’s really hard to get the words out in the way we want– to use your own voice! 


In this fun and practical workshop, Kiki DeVille (singer from “The Voice” and “All Together Now”) will help you bring out your inner Diva with tips and exercises to help you find the voice inside of you that is dying to come out! We should all be able to enjoy the beauty of singing, and this workshop has been designed to help you gain the confidence, or improve the confidence you already have, to get out there and show the world what you’ve got.  You can expect to shed your inhibitions, and maybe even a few tears, and really get to know the diva inside of you.
