Cabaret Connexion: Kyle Hustedt and Hot Toddy, "Moving to the Music"

Thoughtful expression through the body—lessons from burlesque. Making music is at the heart; making sense of it is at the limbs. Actions of the body are as crucial as learning the notes and rhythm. Finding the “comfort zone” of your body language on stage during a performance will make or break the delivery of the song. We’ll dive into the theory that translates basic movements as choreography—everything from a simple smirk or gesture to using the landscape of the stage to your advantage. Tailored to your abilities and needs, each participant will have the opportunity to work one or two of their selections. Mild to wild—you get from the audience what you give them. We give you tools to pop off the page and onto the stage. Todd Michael Kiech (Hot Toddy), from Chicago, is the 2009 Burlesque Hall of Fame’s ‘King of Burlesque’. Alternate session available: same day, 2:00 p.m.

Connexion daytime workshops: $75/participant, $50/audit. The full week of conference activities: $650
