Leaving Space for Improv in Your Acts

You get onstage in a new venue and the stage is MUCH smaller than you were told, you had no time for a walk through and now you dont have enough room for your choreo... Your costume is attacked by gremlins and a piece comes off too soon, or not at all... What do you you? This class talks about what to do when smiling and pretending everything is ok just isn't enough. When you are so thrown off that getting back into your choreography is nearly impossible. Hear some ridiculous stories of stage mess-ups from the perspective of the performer, between laughing (sobbing) Whisper will explain how she fixed the issues and kept going. Learn how Whisper builds acts that are flexible, and accommodating to all stage sizes, and mishaps that can happen in live theater.

About the Teacher - Whisper De Corvo

Whisper De Corvo is a creature of myth. Seattle’s Mythical Muse, Whisper dances on the breath of the wind. Exotic, mysterious, dark, and dangerously beautiful, she treats every performance as a legend in the making. In addition to performing vintage-inspired burlesque with a twist of the bizarre, she recently won "Most Beautiful Performance" at the Great Burlesque Expo. She also holds three titles from the Seattle Burlesque Olympics 2012 ( “Most Dramatic Glove Removal” , "Best interpretative fan dance without fans"and “Grand Supreme”). and has performed at the Pennsylvania Burlesque Festival (formerly Jim Thorpe) and the Windy City Burlesque Festival.
