Description

Storytelling in Burlesque w/James & The Giant Pasty

How to get naked and tell a story in 5 minutes or less without using any words!


Sometimes, the best burlesque acts are the ones that tell a story. In this class, James & The Giant Pasty will teach you how to build a story in into a traditional burlesque act through the use of costume, song choice, story structure, and acting. By the end of the class you’ll have all the tools you need to tell a story and get naked at the same time!

Run Time: 90 Minutes
