The Australian Burlesque School (ABS) is the premier school for professional and developing burlesque performers. It is also a school that promotes the education of burlesque to those off the stage, bringing burlesque to the wider community.

In a refreshing approach for Australian burlesque, ABS weaves together Professional Development and Mentoring for new and established performers, Casual Classes including ‘Burlesque Essentials’, ‘Boudoir Burlesque’ (Over 40 years), and ‘Yummy Mummies’, Weekend Intensives, the ‘On The Hem’ Lecture Series, the ‘Golden Beaus and Beauties’ program in Aged Care, Hen’s Parties, and links to three highly successful production platforms – the Australian Burlesque Festival, Salon Boudoir and Scarlett Productions.

Principals Dolores Daiquiri and Scarlett invest their years of performance, production and educational experience in programs that spur their passion for the expression of the female body. This is why ABS is not a school solely focused on burlesque for the stage. We are a school that celebrates sensuality, beauty, movement and creativity for all. Bringing together vaudevillian, golden era and modern burlesque expression, ABS generates multiple platforms to engage with its history, understanding, practice and performance.

ABS is currently based in Melbourne with the view to expand nationally in 2014.

 

Professional Development Course!

Event Information:

When: Term II 2014: Wednesdays, April 9 until 11 June
Time: 7.00 – 9.30pm
Where: Maison Burlesque, Level 1, 54-56 Bridge Road, Richmond, VIC

The Professional Development Course is designed by burlesque performers, for burlesque performers. It is unique in its approach to industry specific development of routines and personas for the stage.

Each week students attend a 2 ½ hour workshop by one of the Principals or a guest teacher, focusing first on a discussion of the previous week’s work, a skills workshop, their application directly to their routine, and guidance on what to develop on further in the week to follow. Classes are kept small in order to encourage networking and close interaction, more akin to mentoring that a typical class size.

Principals Dolores Daiquiri and Scarlett are there to guide as well as challenge student, to get students ready to approach the burlesque community. We cannot guarantee that students will walk straight into paid performance work or a prolonged place in the industry, but we can give them the tools to solidify their stage personas,

Students receive a Course Workbook to guide each week’s class including information, links, contacts and examples of work to be covered. The final week is dedicated to performing finished routines, providing photography and videography (where appropriate) to aid in the students’ growth beyond the course.
