“Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. Although its literary origins are sometimes associated with the cyberpunk genre, steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century’s British Victorian era or American “Wild West”, in a future during which steam power has maintained mainstream usage, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power.”

This session we will break out our acting skills and embody steampunk characters like the elegant Victorian lady, airship pirates, western gunslinger, mad scientist and use props as enhancements. We will explore different personalities, moods and types of music in fun combos

We will use a prop for 2 classes, so that you can get comfortable with them and get in the needed practice. If you have these props please bring them but there will be loaners as well.

Class 1-2: Parasols

Class 3-4: Hats: pirate hats, tops hats, bowler hats.

Class: 5-6 canes/fans


Here are some links to give you an idea of costuming and some descriptions of the types of characters we will emulate.
