“Being a part of the first 101 class for The Burlesque Conservatory taught me so much there aren’t enough words describe how much it helped me. I was with a previous troupe and had performed outside of my home city a few times but I didn’t feel like I was progressing and was lacking in a lot of skills I needed to learn. The instructors drive and passion to really teach us of the community, history, and performance was amazing and inspiring. They really want you to be the best you can be and they will help you achieve that. I struggled in confidence in my persona, performance, and in life. They really showed me that I can and will do it. After the first 101 class, I joined the troupe Bad Witch Burlesque and was using what I learned in my performances. When I saw they were doing a 102 class, I immediately joined to do it again. After being in the 101 and 102 class, I see a difference in the type of performer I am now. My favorite thing that I was taught were all the tricks, whether it be chair work, floor work, or a costume reveal. I am still performing with Bad Witch Burlesque after I went on a 2 month break for my wedding. I have performed with Purple Nightshade Productions for their Mythical Monster Mash show, Theoretical Rejects at Fantasm for their Edgar Allan Poe show, and Savannah Sweet Tease for the 123TEASE Newbie Edition Improv Game Show where I was co-champion with Rainey Daze. I’m excited to keep using the skills I learned in this upcoming year. I cannot recommend this enough. Thank you for everything The BC has taught us, I am forever grateful to have been apart of both classes.”
