HOW TO CAPTIVATE YOUR AUDIENCE IN WAYS THAT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH FANCY COSTUMES OR CLEVER THEMES
Do you want to exude more confidence on stage or in your everyday life? Are you looking to take your audience to the next level but are unsure that you have what it takes? This class is here to help. We will cover techniques on breaking out of a performance rut, attacking choreography and themes by exploring different sides of your “alter ego.” Using Archetype Cards and a pair of gloves, Poison Ivory will teach participants on how to approach and explore new character traits and movements, using easy exercises.
** Participants should come prepared with a pair of gloves **
TAKING YOUR BURLESQUE ACT FROM EMBERS TO AN INFERNO
Created by Poison Ivory, Miss Exotic World 2016, this class is designed help participants take their slow burn acts to the next level. Teaching some her tried and true techniques, as well as a choreography portion to put those techniques into practice, participants will leave with a new found confidence to create the slow burn act of their dirtiest desires. Whether you are new to the stage or a veteran of tease, if you are ready to ignite the hearts of your audiences with the slightest of gesture, but still want to make them wait for it, then this class is definitely for you.
We’re so Fake is a lecture based workshop designed help participants not only recognize the signs of Impostor Syndrome, but learn tips and tricks on how to overcome the feelings of unworthiness often associated with it.

So whether you are new to the stage or a veteran of tease, if you are ready to stop letting negative self talk get in you way, then this class is definitely for you.
** Participants should come with an open heart and prepared for notes **
