Set the stage on fire! Go from talented to TNT! Build a larger-than-life Burlesque persona with Tigger! & take your performances & characters to the next level.
Tigger! is a recognized pioneer of today's burlesque scene, but he has been an actor all his life -- "acting like a stripper" since 1992. Using his degree in theatre, his experience teaching acting at universities & over 40 years on the stage (from Shakespeare to Shimmy), Tigger! employs his theatrical training & perspective to break down what makes a burlesque performer stand out from the herd. Whatever you do in front of any kind of an audience, You are an Actor.
