Glamour Clown: A Guide To Painting Your Face For The Stage

Description: Your face is the key to connecting you with your audience so why not have your features visible to everyone in the room? This one hour workshop will guide you through techniques and tools that will elevate your make-up game. Sparkle Plenty will show you how to contour, highlight, bake & paint to add more drama to your already fabulous look for the stage so even the people in the back of the theatre can see you. Bring a notepad and pen to take notes.

Dangerous Curves: Loving Your Body

Description: “In life, as in art, the beautiful moves in curves” – Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
Dangerous Curves: Loving Your Body is a class for beginners to learn how to use every inch of their body to it’s full potential. Rooted in voluptuous movement, this class will empower participants in embracing their bodies and using bumps, grinds, sways and rolls to feel their most sensual!
