Act Development Series for Experienced Performers
Desire space to be creatively challenged and held accountable while creating a new Burlesque act?
This series supports you in all elements of creating a stunning performance, including music selection, storyline development and choreography. We meet together via Zoom for discussion and feedback, and have dedicated work weeks for building acts.
Sometimes we focus on a highly requested theme or style (such as Halloween or Glamour/Classic). Most often, we invite you bring what excites and challenges you. We encourage you to take advantage of the collective expertise and workshopping opportunities. Many of our participants have taken their Polish That Pastie acts to Burlesque festivals and big shows!
Participants are divided into two groups that take turns presenting their act plans. All participants have at least two opportunities to share their act with the full group. Those who wish to travel to Portland are invited to perform in a paid BodyMagick Temple Showcase.
This series is for performers who have performed at least 1 Burlesque solo and understand the basic components of building an act. If you're new to Burlesque or would like greater support with act creation, check out our Burlesque 101 online or in-person.
