Michigan Burlesque Festival Workshops

There will be three workshops held on September 20, 2014 starting at 12pm.

12pm-1:30pm Fabulous is a State of Mind, hosted by Foxy Tann

Sometimes a girl has GOT to be fabulous! Whether it be on stage, in the boardroom, or in the lecture hall, there are times when a girl has to be larger than life. Foxy Tann is offering an exciting and fun way to get in touch with a truthful inner confidence using burlesque as a framework. You will create and use pathways and methodologies that will help you forge a more sexy and confident you in an authentic and organic way – allowing you to tap into show stopping energy whenever you need it. Learn to work with what you have and love what you work with! This is a physical class with guided discussions and critiques in a safe and supportive environment. Wear comfortable clothing and be prepared to move!

2pm-3:30pm Assels & Tassels, hosted by Foxy Tann

Tassel twirling is the most recognizable elements of burlesque, and Foxy Tann knows that absolutely anyone can do it! In this raucous introductory class, The Fox will teach you the basics of tassel and assel twirling as a fun way to build a better body image for yourself and gain self confidence. There is no dance experience necessary and everyone is welcome! HardCore Pasties and tassels will be available to you to borrow for the class or buy so you can take your new found skill home and impress your partner or your roommates. Wear movement clothing and know that we will be removing some of it during class. You can’t twirl unless you let the girls out!
