Once in a lifetime opportunity for a burlesque workshop in NOTTINGHAM with the one and only, burlesque legend… GOODTIME MAMA JOJO!!!
Personas & props workshop – This is for students who already have the basic moves, but who haven’t yet experimented with their personas and the use of props to compliment and create different characters.
This is executed to a variety of music in order to introduce themes.
Jo King is a performer, teacher, choreographer who has taught, inspired and empowered thousands of women world-wide, including Immodesty Blaize and last year’s judge Miss Polly Rae!
Feisty, fearless, and 50 something, with over 37 years experience in the cabaret industry, Jo King tirelessly promotes female confidence through her work.
In 2000 (after many years of teaching and choreographing burlesque striptease dancers in London clubs) she formed the pioneering London School of Striptease which was the very first company in Europe to offer opportunities for every woman to learn exotic-dance, classic striptease and pole-dancing. Jo also formed the London Academy of Burlesque which specialised in the theatricality, performance skills and re-invention of this sensational Vaudevillian genre.
In June 2008, celebrating her 30th year in the industry, Jo was invited to perform at the 52nd Annual Burlesque Legend’s Reunion Showcase in Las Vegas. Jo is the first British performer to be recognised as a “Burlesque Legend” by the Burlesque Hall of Fame.
