How To Make Pasties: Burlesque Diy Workshop says
Make a pair of pasties in class and learn how to adhere them properly! Gina Louise will show you how to make basic pasties -- for the stage or the boudoir! For performers, this a skill that will come in handy throughout your burlesque career. Whether you're crafty or not, there will be times when you need novelty pasties on the cheap or an emergency pair backstage. After crafting, we will adhere our pasties, so be sure dress with that in mind. Bring a glue gun if you have one. Materials provided.

Gina Louise, Co-Founder of the Playful Peacock Showgirl Academy, has been teaching the art of burlesque since 2005. Her engaging teaching style welcomes all students, no matter what their background. A Minneapolis cabaret artist known for creating innovative events and ensemble performances since 2003, Gina is a producer, emcee, soloist, choreographer, and instructor. Of all her roles onstage and behind-the scenes, teaching is her favorite! Ms. Louise brings a penchant for classic glamour, a twist of kitsch, and a bit of the avant-garde to her projects, including workshops, festivals, fundraisers, and cabarets. She is the Founder and Artistic Director of The Minneapolis Burlesque Festival, The Ladyslippers, The Emporium of Frolics & Romps, and Kiss of Fire. She originated the Best of Midwest Burlesk Festival and The Peacock Showgirls, and was a founder of the award-winning Lili's Burlesque Revue. Gina has been honored to perform at The Burlesque Hall of Fame and stages across the Twin Cities.

The Playful Peacock, the first school in the region specializing in the art of burlesque, was founded by Ophelia Flame and Gina Louise, who have been performing together since 2003 and teaching workshops since 2005. The belief that there's a bit of showgirl in all of us is the drive behind their mission: to teach burlesque technique, performance, and history while encouraging self-expression and body confidence. The Academy also offers performance opportunities, bachelorette parties, and special events. All are welcome!
