Are you wanting to book a workshop for your troupe or studio? In addition to the workshops I offer publicly, you can also book me to come to YOU. These workshops are a great way to develop your performance in specific ways that work for you. 

 

All workshop inquiries can be sent to cherry.cheeks.burlesque@gmail.com

Stage It Up!

Length: 1.5 hours

Do you get your stage left and right mixed up? Do you have difficulty using the entire stage to your advantage? The stage is one of the biggest parts of our performance, yet it can be intimidating to get to know.

 

Coming full force with a theatre background, Cherry Cheeks will show you the ins and outs to owning your stage! Participants can expect to leave knowing the basics and the magic dynamics of any stage to easily move their routines between various stages and be sure to use the WHOLE stage to your advantage. She will demonstrate the different effects, pictures, and stories you can portray by the simplest placement while knowing how to use your fourth wall.

Fake It! (Till you make it)

Length: 1.5 hours

Do you suffer from the inevitable “imposter syndrome?” Is confidence something you have trouble building on? Do you strive to build your persona and performance into ways that may…well…not come naturally to you? What if you were told that there are ways to fake it?! In this class, Cherry Cheeks will guide you through confidence building exercises to get you off the ground! Going from part theory into practice, you will learn to bring your A-game, even when you may not be feeling it. But it’s not all bogus! Eventually your practice can naturally build into genuine confidence that can flood into your life.

Group Peer Reviews:

Length: 2 hours

I hold monthly community peer reviews throughout the year (currently not available during Covid), but if you'd prefer a private group session, I do those too! Peer reviews are an opportunity to break down your routines in front of your burlesque peers. Performers can bring acts that may already exist or are brand new. Performers present an act in front of their peers, who in return provide feedback and suggestions with how to elevate the act to the next level. Peer reviews are a great way to learn how an act comes across before bringing it to a live audience. Workshopping typically inspires a lot of questions and discussion, so performers are encouraged to be prepared for genuine constructive feedback.
