Zelia Rose introduces Burlesque through the ages!
An 8-week course for insight, knowledge and movement based techniques of how to take the old into the new. Art history has done so much ground work for us and forms what we see in culture today. Today making your own art is about doing what’s true to you and doing things in the spirit of inquiry. Learn how to transcend this into your own creativity with understanding and inspiration of years gone by. You’ll be taken through the physicality and undertones of 18th century burlesque to now. Understand the inspirations of the time and motivation behind the styles and influences.
This workshop will explore movement and character, focusing on dance and physical theatre.
