Awesome Burlesque 101 with Annie Cherry - 6 of 6

Titillated by tassels? Bump 'n' Grind on your mind? Would you like to strut your stuff on stage, or simply feel more confident in your skin? 

Professional, award-winning burlesque performer Annie Cherry teaches you the basics of classic burlesque performance art. We will cover movement, choreography, costuming, staging, musicality, storytelling, and more. We will work together to reveal your performance style, and develop your unique stage persona. We will learn a group act, and yes, you will learn to twirl tassels. Whether your interest is in classic or neo-burlesque, in performing publicly or privately, being well-versed in the traditional movements and history of this theatrical art form will serve you. 

This is a six week session, beginning February 20th, 2018. Class convenes every week at The Pearl in Kansas City, Missouri. Classes are on Tuesday evenings from 6:30pm to 8pm. 

Class size is limited, so register right away! This class is open to individuals at all levels of performance experience.
