OPTION 1 - $150 CND

One-Time Act Coaching Write Up!

All details, HERE.

OPTION 2 - $300 CND

Intensive Act Coaching in 3 Parts

Part 1 : You send me a video of an act you would like to bring to its fullest expression (can be at home video or a live show). I complete the Virtual Act Write Up described here ( and we schedule a 90min video chat briefing where you can ask me clarifying questions about my feedback and we can make a concrete plan for how you will implement positive changes.

Part 2 : An implementation phase follows. As you work through the actual realization of our plans, I will be on call for any questions or to address any stumbling blocks you may encounter (costume or choreography problem-solving).

Part 3 : We follow up the implementation phase with a 90min video chat where we see how you've progressed and what, if anything, there may be left to complete. You can send me a video of the newly formed act at this phase where possible. You walk away with a full realized, festival-ready, professional-level burlesque act!

OPTION 3 - price TBD

Ongoing Portfolio and Career Consultations

We complete all phases of Option 2 and maintain an ongoing feedback and growth relationships for your entire burlesque portfolio. I become your virtual burlesque mentor. This option can be explored once we have completed Option 2 for at least one of your acts.
