You can be a pro performer or a newbie, a burlesque student or simply doing burlesque in private, for yourself. But, JUST DO IT! ;-) Here 5 reasons for doing burlesque!
1.BECAUSE BURLESQUE IS LIKE A MEDICINE. Doing burlesque you MUST be concentrated on what you are doing, you MUST be in the present, you MUST think to the choreography, to the movements of your body, so there's not space for bad thoughts. This is a beautiful way to connect with your soul.
2.BECAUSE WITH BURLESQUE YOU CAN DEVELOP YOUR TALENTS. If you are good at dancing, or mime, or at seducing, put in your acts what you can do. What was your dream, when you was a child? On stage impossible is nothing: you can turn yourself into a pilot, a queen, a doctor...a fairy, a witch, a serpent, a wolf...you can be your favourite actress, a diva, a historical figure...you can be who you want, because if you imagine, you create.
3.BECAUSE BURLESQUE GENERATES SMILE. If you put in burlesque your ironic soul, you can smile about the life, about the sex, about politic, about all. If you also make people smile when you perform, you create a beautiful movement of energy. Adrenaline is contagious (and this is not a mystical thesis, it is physical)!
4.BECAUSE BURLESQUE IS "THINKING INDEPENDENT". Today's society wants people classified with labels: the woman manager, the perfect wife and mother , the single , the multitasking . But if we had wanted to be labeled, we would be born in a supermarket, not in a bed (or flying with a stork). Burlesque breaks the concept of "object woman", and promotes a "subject woman" who decides how to perform, who to be, when and when to change, she knows the patience of practicing and the art of improvisation, and she knows how to laugh about who she decides to be. Burlesque ladies are rebels with glitter!
5.BECAUSE BURLESQUE IS SEXY. How do you feel when you feel yourself sexy? Happy! First of dress, parfum, make up, hairstyle, there's you. Only you, and your way to move. Burlesque makes you feel sexy, even when you're in your pink pajamas and no makeup!
