What We Do Behind the Console, instructed by Matt Buchla
March 8 - May 3
What happens behind the scenes at a local burlesque show? Find out how the people behind scenes maintain the erotic illusion of the performers on stage without the audience ever knowing. If you are or want to be a burlesque performer, understanding every aspect of the show will help you elevate your creativity and unlock new horizons. Technology can be scary, but in this class we will engage with it hands on to pull the curtain back and really figure out what's actually going on in the spooky-looking tech booth.

Clown Class, instructed by Tout D'Lou
March 10 - May 5
With each week, students will learn different basic clowning skills with a focus on one particular skill per class. Then after each lesson, we will apply it physically. We will practice different clowning exercises to further your burlesque character and physical comedy. Also we will cover a brief history of the jester, pierrot, clowning and vaudeville in relation to the history of burlesque to better understand the symbiotic relationship between the two; to further understand how to blend these two skills together. With a potential show at the end of the class to showcase everyone's new skill set!
