Jezebel will also have costuming on hand so you can see how her quick reveals and surprise striptease moments work. If you'd like to bring a striptease item to play with, feel free, but it's not required. This class is for all levels, genders, and all levels of ability and experience.
How To Make AN Act That Sparkles! (8:30-9:30)
This class is perfect for anyone who wants to hone their striptease craft, or create their very first burlesque act, whether for the stage or for private use ;)! Jezebel will review principles of act development: how to choose music, structure an act, build a character and how to perfect your timing!
We'll also talk about what to do when things go wrong, how many items you should take off, and discuss what makes some acts stand out (and how to make your own acts sparkle!)
This class is for all levels, genders, and all levels of ability and experience.
