Subject: Put a Lid On It / Costume Guide
Security: Public
Class: Intro (Level 1/2) Burlesque w/Red Hot Annie:

Performance Date: See email

Inspiration: Flapper girls who just left the speakeasy!

This act is about focusing on matching fancy footwork with great arms and hands! A high-energy piece that is as much about delivering "good face" as it is about accurate movements.

Never rehearse the steps without a smile on your face and a connection to the world around you. You can't be on stage and be "in your head" at the same time!

Costume Guide

Top Layer: Fringe 20's Style Flapper Dress KNEE LENGTH, easy to remove (nothing that pulls over the head!), hat (will be used in choreography), gloves, black shoes, black thigh-high stockings (may be secured with garter)

Second Layer: Bra, undies (garter optional)
(If you feel unsure about showing your midriff, you can wear a black cincher, or sexy, vintage long-form girdle)

You'll also want to acquire tons of sparkle, sequins, trims and other things to make each part of your costume unique! I like to use Ebay to get things cheap like rhinestones, fringe trim, appliques, and other items. The more, the better!
