Teaching & Testing

Dear Constant Reader,

The Boston Babydolls have been busy preparing a new number for the Rhinestone Revue at The Great Burlesque Expo. We’re also busy preparing to teach. Most of us are teaching at least one class and part of each rehearsal is set aside so the instructor can try out her material.

So far, Betty has taught us about planning a choreography schedule, Devora has shown us ballet basics, and last night Brigitte got us all tapping (well, she was tapping; we were soft shoeing it).

Upcoming, we limber up with Evie, although it’s unlikely we’ll ever be as flexible as she is. Then it’s my turn and I’ll introduce everyone to fan dancing and then it’s Betty again with a class on facial expressions.

It’s been a great experience — the teachers get to practice their classes and get feedback before the real thing. We all get to take classes we might otherwise at the event. Win-win!

And this is just a fraction of the classes available at the Expo! If it sounds like fun, you should probably sign up for the conference.
