Reverend Legs Malone of NYC comes to the Valley, bringing with her two incredible, powerhouse workshops in personal awareness and growth. Mizz Lucy first became acquainted with Legs several years ago at Burlycon, where Lucy attended Healing Your Relationship with Your Body.
Since then, applying what Legs taught, Lucy's relationship with a body she disliked, improved so much, that she brought Legs to Studio VaVaVoom in 2016 to teach that clinic to overwhelming, positive reception, Lucy stalked Legs over the next 2 years begging her to return and that return is now happening. Legs brings with her a new clinic in this double-header, not-to-be-missed event.
Clinic descriptions are below. Take one or do yourself a service and attend both at the discounted, Double Dip rate. Light refreshments are provided for those who attend both clinics. Participants must be 18 or older OR may attend ages, 14-17 with signed parental or guardian consent. All gender identities are welcome and open minds are invited to open further.
Healing Your Relationship with Your Body
First created for BurlyCon in 2011, Legs has taught this groundbreaking workshop to hundreds of people all over the world including New York, Seattle, Colorado Springs, Vancouver BC (Canada), London (UK) and Bristol (UK).
As performers, our bodies are our mediums and very often, we hold a lot of history and thoughts within us that in turn hold us back from achieving the highest expression of our good, both onstage and off. This workshop, working from the premise that all thought is creative, provides an opportunity to delve into and experientially examine the roots of our relationships with our bodies and work on releasing our blocks to joy, abundance and all life. Topics covered include right action, dialoguing with the Self, partner processes, forgiveness exercises and working with affirmations to counteract negative emotional beliefs and personal lies.
Burlesque as Medicine: Retrieving Love and Innocence Through Radical Self Expression
For millennia, bodies have been subjected to rules, regulations and even legislation restricting everything from its appearance to its expression. From how we dress to how we behave, we have been told what to do for countless centuries. As a result, we have inherited limiting beliefs and thoughts about our bodies that shape how we live, work and interact with everyone in our lives.
In this unique and groundbreaking workshop taught by Rev. Legs Malone, these internal, inherited structures of thought and behavior will be questioned and lovingly challenged through the evocative and sensual art form of burlesque.
We will be diving deep into our bodily awareness and consciousness, creating new contexts of being through the re-education of any fear, shame and judgment into the presence of belonging, innocence and empowerment using movement, reflective processes and meditations.
This workshop is for anyone who is tired of feeling held back from their own authentic self expression and their heart’s true desire.
All are welcome! Please note that clothes will remain on at all times.
You should wear comfortable attire and are encouraged to bring a pillow, blanket, mat, journal and anything that has you comfy and relaxed. Topics may contain sensitive material, therefore your discretion is appreciated and respecting the privacy of others is expected. Prepare to walk away with your mind a bit blown.
