developing your own burlesque style

Join Ruby for this one hour workshop on developing your own unique burlesque style. Delve into & challenge your own ideas of burlesque to truly unleash the creative within.
It has taken me 5 years to get to the point where I feel comfortable in my performing skin – I tried a lot of things, headed in many different directions and then doubled back numerous times before finding my true direction. This workshop is about that journey, targeted at expanding your perception and helping you gain the confidence to find your own direction with your burlesque performances.This is a great workshop for those young performers, those struggling with to find their own niche & those just generally wanting to expand their minds. Come & learn from my “experience” (read: varied amounts of jumping all over the place!)

The Power of F.A.C.E

F.A.C.E = Feel it. Act it. Centre it. Express it.An often looked over but incredibly important part of every act is emotion & facial expressions. As the saying goes your eyes are the window to your soul and your audience will actually spend most of their time looking at exactly that – your eyes & face. What does your face say to the audience?

Join Ruby Ruin for this one hour workshop on “how to give good face”, learn how to use the power of emotion in performance and learn to translate attitude and emotion into facial expressions that build your act.

You’ve spent hours on your choreography, costuming and development – remember to add F.A.C.E at the finish line for a truly powerful, charismatic & entertaining act. This workshop is a one stop shop on bringing out that fabulous face!
