The Hands and Arms of a Dancer

This class that Indigo Blue called a "Game Changer" is on the subject of the body language of arms and hands, including how that language can inspire work with gloves. We will look at the emotional content and symbolism of every single part of the arms and hands, and how you can use that knowledge to enrich both your dancing and your tease.

About the Teacher - Willy Barrett

The world’s foremost teacher of, and pioneer in, reconstructing the Delsarte System of Expression, used by the early theater choreographers to create the Broadway styles (including the Ziegfeld Follies). Joe's teaching has taken him around the world and he is proud to have taught Delsarte at the National Centre of Dance in Paris, at the Juilliard School, and also at numerous Middle Eastern dance festivals across the US. A great lover of burlesque for many years, he created and regularly performed a stripping gorilla burlesque for several years in Ohio in the late 1980's. Now he looks forward to teaching at the Great Burlesque Expo every year that he can and lends his support to the revival of this beloved, charming art.
