Live Session Length: 105 Minutes

Course Experience Level: All

Course Description: The most compelling performers are inherent storytellers. Often times in Burlesque, we forgo the story telling aspect of our performance and find ourselves speeding through our tease- missing the opportunity to add layers of theatricality to milk the anticipation in our acts.

 In this course, you will learn to use "The Four S's"  in order to do just that! We will take a trip around the image of a  square - with each side representing a crucial story telling element to guide us through the building of layered acts, that are rooted in story to keep our audiences on the edge of their seats and dying to see what happens next!
