PAST EVENT / WORKSHOP
We asked Jessica to write her past experience with teaching this Burlesque Workshop Series. See her response below!
1. What were your initial thoughts as you completed this workshop? How do you feel as the instructor/host?
It's always a great feeling to see the transition of dancers from start to finish, the end result is always so exciting, costumes, makeup, choreography and most of all watching students shine with confidence!
2. What did you do/teach differently in this workshop in comparison to your other classes?
In this workshop, I started in a circle checking in with everyone mentally as COVID has affected everyone differently. I asked what people were looking to get out of this workshop and started the course with the requested material. Gaining confidence by teaching struts, posing, eye contact and performance. It was great to see everyone ready and eager to get into practice with energetic attitudes.
3. What was your most enjoyable moment?
My favorite studio moments are always the small things, side comments listening to students cheer each other on, watching fellow students assisting others with wardrobe/makeup, and the expressions of students nailing their choreography. It's all the in-between moments that are my big wins as a teacher.
4. What are you hoping to share with your students who missed this experience?
Every workshop is special and is based with the people in the room. I hope to emphasise how "group workshops" become more then a dance class, it's built around choreography but most importantly designed to create an experience to remember. In this case, phrases that you will take home for a lifetime. "S CURVE, Pivot Turn, Chest Up, Yassss Queen".
