An Intro to Burlesque
Friday, April 26th
NorShor Theatre Practice Space
Join us and peek into the Duluth Dolls and the art of tease with Co-Director Miss Tallulah Creant and Doll Miss Moxie Maven! Burlesque is a uniquely American performance art form that combines humor, sexuality, politics, and topics of the body in a 3-5 minute dance/theater skit form to music. The goal is to move students from any experience level to an actual kinesthetic experience. This workshop is about learning to build your burlesque attitude; feeling great about your body, and an open discussion about increased confidence and positive thinking. Please come dressed comfortably and be ready to spend two interactive hours experienceing your inner Doll through a variety of movement exercises to connect the mind and body into a positive-sensual experience.
Miss Tallulah Creant has been a dancing fool since the ripe age of three years old. Raised in Duluth, she trained at the Minnesota Ballet, where she studied ballet, modern and jazz dance. During this time, Tallulah was also actively participating in local theater productions and competitively figure skating. She left the lovely city of Duluth in 2005 to train at Perpich Center for Arts Education where she graduated from the dance department. Tallulah moved back to Duluth in 2007, added latin ballroom to the list, and has been an acitve and vibrant member of the dance community since her return. She has been involved with the Duluth Dolls since its establishment in 2012 and is now the Director. She is forever grateful for the creative outlet it provides and the bomb-ass group of ladies that make up the Duluth Dolls.
Miss Moxie Maven hails from the shores of another Great Lake, originally from the Chicago area, she grew up in the Midwest. Once left her own devices, Moxie's life took her to the East Coast. During these years she lived many adventures but longed for a taste of home.
As one of our newest Dolls, she just found her way to Duluth this year. Moxie is so excited to expose herself to all Duluth has to offer... and to you!
Miss Maven enjoys exploring the city, watching SNL on Sunday mornings with her cat and Irish coffee, and any genre of live music.
Miss Maven brings experience in Boudoir and Pin Up, as well as a whole lot of moxie!
