"THE MIND: DANCE FOR MOBILITY RESTRICTIONS"

The Mind is a class that focuses on theory, group discussion, meditation and mindfulness. How can we rewrite our conversations with our bodies in the midst of injury or limited mobility? (approx. 50 minutes)
"THE MOVEMENT: FLOOR/CHAIR FOR MOBILITY RESTRICTIONS"

The Movement is where I share how I've come to reimagine burlesque movements on chairs and on the floor in a way that avoids injury and keeps all the sex. How do you captivate a room without the strut or the parade? (approx. 50 minutes)
"ENERGY FLOW: SAFE/CENTERED STAGE PRESENCE"

Commanding an audience's attention doesn't have to mean constantly moving about a stage! Learn the five elements Jacqueline uses to make the absolute most of center stage and practice a brief choreography that introduces adapting these elements to your own performance style. (approx. 50 minutes)
"PIN-UP POSING FOR ALL BODIES"

Jacqueline Boxx wants to show you that pin-up style posing can include all of the glamour and none of the judgment or shame. This is an accessible and inclusive guide to finding poses that work with a camera and a love of your body to create lasting art. (variable time)
Limited mobility is a reality for EVERY body at some point, and learning how to move in harmony with restrictions rather than in spite of them is a valuable lifelong tool.

Jacqueline has made a world of difference in helping me approach burlesque as a performer with disability and chronic illness. Her advice and mentorship have taught me how to be mindful of my pain and take care of myself without sacrificing any stage presence. Learning from her is something that I am eternally grateful for. I very much look forward to working with her more in the future, and cannot recommend her enough as a mentor.
