Billie Madley: Burlesque Beyond Burlesque $35

November 12 4-6 pm
Location: 440 Studios, 440 Lafayette St, NYC Studio #4D
All levels welcome.

Learn secrets of creating vibrant, uniquely personal burlesque from a neo-legend, a performer's performer who understands music, movement, and narrative in an instinctive, unforgettable way.


World-renowned producer and artist Billie Madley set the bar high for burlesque when she first performed in and produced shows as a pioneer of the burlesque revival, and continues to raise that bar. She knows how to be magnetic on stage, and how to leave an impression that lingers. Though she has set her sights on additional areas of performance and fashion recently, her influence on the burlesque scene is so strong that the highest level performers, including Reigning Queen of Burlesque 2010 Roxi Delite, currently refer to her videos for inspiration and insight.

Level: All
For dancers and people who want to look like dancers...Burlesque is many things, but above all, burlesque is about communicating through movement. Learn such concepts as whether the music is working for your lower or upper body, and how to establish character and narrative from body language and choreography alone.
