The next beginners burlesque course starts September 2 running on six tuesday nights, 6.30pm- 7.30pm at Revue Studios.
Places now released on the tickets page of www.bluestockinglounge.com
Led by Lilly Laudanum, one of Wales’ leading burlesque performers, recognised over the UK for signature character-driven comedy acts including her portrayal of Queen Victoria, and DeeDee DeLa Rouge, trained dancer and comper of Bluestocking Lounge shows, this beginners course focuses on some of the basic moves which include posing and peeling, making an entrance, shimmying and shaking. Confidence-building techniques together with deportment and devising characters are also part of the course.
This women’s only class will be held at Revue Studios and, with the focus firmly on fun, is aimed at beginners. The six weekly one hour sessions are a lot of fun and great bonding sessions for those new to the area, too! There will be no nudity involved. The classes are designed to give those interested in burlesque an introduction to the art form and an insight into its historical roots in ancient Greece. It’s the ideal course to gain a taste of what burlesque is all about, for those looking for a fun hobby or those interested in going on to perform themselves. We provide support for those wanting to step out on stage and past students include the award-winning Tickety Boo (‘Best Solo Act’ at Dublin Burlesque Festival and Overall Best Act at Cabaret Nouveau 2013, Leicester) and Teezy Overeasy (Critics Choice Award) at Varietease, Leeds).
The next six week course will start September 2. Our classes start at 6.30pm, at Revue Studios, 8 Castle Square, Swansea. It costs £40 for non Revue members and £34 for Revue members (please enter your Revue membership number at the checkout). Places are very limited to 10.
