Discover your own burlesque style; A performer's intensive,
including solo performance opportunity at The Butterfly Boudoir Christmas Showcase


Do you want to:
-Find your own signature movement style?
-Break out of movement patterns you catch yourself repeating?
-Level up your movement game with belly dance techniques, burlesque movement masterclasses & flexibility training?
-Find inspiration and passion to create new routines?
-Experiment and learn with a small group of like-minded burlesque dancers?

This two day intensive with Doe Demure combines taught movement classes, with guided improvisation, to encourage new movement idea formation. There will be discussion around choreography creation aswell as an introduction to flexibility training for burlesque dancers.
On the Saturday evening there is an opportunity for attendees to perform a solo in The Butterfly Boudoir Christmas Showcase, held in the hall at the Attenborough Arts Centre. To take part in the show participants must have booked the intensive and contact doe at doe@doedemure.co.uk to reserve a performance spot.

You will need:
-Notebook & pen
-An open mind & willing attitude to try new approaches which might feel silly at first!
-Yoga mat & 2 x yoga blocks for flexibility training (although these are not essential)

Who's it for?
Burlesque performers looking to create unique choreography or define their own signature style, and instructors looking for new ways to generate choreography ideas.
Participants will need to be able to dance for up to 5 and a half hours a day, although there will be an hour break for lunch and some discussion time.

Why attend?
Hair/make-up/costume is important but Doe works with a movement first approach. State your routine's intention clearly with movement, and everything else will compliment and elaborate on your routine's "story".

Can beginners attend? Yes, however attendees will get more out of the training if they have atleast a year or so of experience in burlesque.
