Burlesque – the empowered art of control and taking your time; the invitation to have others join you on a theatrical journey celebrating your sensuality and self-awareness; and the joyful expression of the human body in all its beautiful and varied forms. This adult burlesque workshop is for everyone – those of you who are slightly nervous and those of you who are super eager… students who want to be the next Dita von Teese and those who simply want to learn to walk in high heels with confidence… humans who are looking for a deeply accepting theatre experience and outrageous performers looking to reach for the next level. Join Lady Grey, the Queen of Tap and Tease, a veteran of the Broadway stage as well as a dance educator for over 30 years and the happy ringleader of the local/regional burlesque community in State College, PA, as she leads students on a journey full of sparkle, shimmies, and sensuality. Students will have the opportunity to perform a group number in a final private showcase performance on Saturday evening followed by a short meet and greet with friends and family.
