BLOG - AFTER BLANC DE BLANC / PERFORMANCE ADVICE


Fist of all thank you to all my BL (Burlesque L’amour) Family for being so supportive with me taking some time off work. believe me when i say I MISSED IT AND MISSED YOU ALL SO FLIPPIN MUCH.  


FLIP, After seeing Blanc de Blanc for the 3rd time, but this time in Melbourne, i am just as inspired as the 1st time i went in Brisbane. A few of our girls at Burlesque L’amour were lucky enough to witness this masterpiece of a show. So what is it that has inspired me? As you all know i have been apart of many shows now, both director and performer as well as seeing so many live dance shows and concerts i cant count how many times on two hands. But for me (apart from BEYONCE) Blanc de Blanc is an absolute stand out. Why you ask? 

 

Its everything i stand for as a performer, show director and teacher. The key words i would use to describe this show. Simplicity, Character, Expression, Flawless, Entertainment, Humour and most of all FUN all used to deliver a killer show. For many years now i have been preaching how important it is for me to see the character and an entertainer within a performer. From toddler to senior high school performance crew to BL dancer this statement i have always stuck by… 


“ I do NOT care how high you can leap, how far you can split or how many turns you can do i am interested in how well you can entertain me. And the Beauty of this is that it varies for each individual person/Performer. Yes these wonderful technical aspects of dance help a lot, But for an overall, Entertainment is key. Be a stand out, Be selfish and own that stage for being you and being different, do it for you ” 


And honestly, This is what i saw for the third time at Blanc De Blanc. An Array of all different levels, shapes, abilities and strengths, working as one in a fabulous team to deliver a FANTASTIC SHOW. And i ask you girls, Is this not BL? We are on the right track and that is evident by our sell out shows and growing classes and more so now by me seeing it live 3 TIMES under the big lights! BE FLIPPIN PROUD, im proud and i thank you for trusting me. Please see below the key words i used to describe Bland de Blanc and what these key aspects mean to you and our show. 


SIMPLICITY: Another of my favourite statements… SIMPLE YET EFFECTIVE. Yes, technique is impressive, but nailing the choreography given to you and implementing the other aspects below delivers a much more impressive act. This was done perfectly at Blanc de Blanc….


CHARACTER: Great character work is used all the way from your fingers to your toes. Use your stage name to the best of your ability. Write a story for your character, who is he or she? is she a Beyonce type? a Catherine zeta jones from Chicago? or more of a sweet Marilyn Monroe? 




EXPRESSION: Like Character work, Expression is used all the way from your fingers to your toes. But mostly in your face. And work it to best suit you. Resting Bitch face? Lip bite? Smile? Cheeky grin. Nothing is wrong (apart from no expression at all) 


FLAWLESS: Flawless is training until your routines and all its aspects are executed flawlessly, effortlessly and with ease. 


ENTERTAINMENT AND HUMOUR: One thing i personally as i show director would like to work on more is humorous acts and humours statements within the show. This is something i need to grow on. But by all means if you have any ideas please dont hesitate to put them forward to me. ;)




FUN: Last but not least FUN! this is something we have nailed at Burlesque Lamour. And this comes down to the everlasting friend ships you have created which are evident on stage.


So there we have it. So lets implement all these aspects into our classes and shows….. Watching you all grow is my greatest love! Cant wait to see how 2018 show impacts you all! What an achievement… All these wonderful women empowered through the love of dance. Ranging from beginner to advanced working as one to put on KILLER shows. 


With Love Jordacious xxxx

This is my first year at Burlesque and I'm soooo glad I joined. As a mothers of two beautiful daughters my greatest achievement in life going back to dancing many years later was to show them at first that you can do anything in life. Since going back my love for dance as I discovered never left this not so strong nor flexible body anymore . However since training again I have already improved . The fire that used to fill my soul was still there as I danced and performed in the first amazing show . I'm very grateful to have worked with so many great artists in my past and now I'm very grateful for this wonderful dance school which gives so many various types of individuals to fulfill their love of performing . Being creative is awesome and that sense of freedom within expression is what turns on our lights . So I agree to be the best you can be as a performer is to ignight that fire in your belly the one that's allows you to find your freedom and let it shine. Just to be you , find that and we will shine like stars.❤️Heidi ....,
