Tigger! flawlessly incorporates lip sync into many of his burlesque numbers, raising the energy level of the room as he connects to the audience. How does he make it work? He'll discuss how to choose the right music to lip sync (hints: have fun, tell a story, create a character, and refrain from problematic lyrics) be precise and intentional, how to choose moments to emphasize your strip with the lyrics, and how to make your lip sync so expressive it reads to the back of the room. He'll lecture and then lead you through a few examples critiquing your efforts for improvement along the way. It's a crash course in successfully adding a fierce element to your numbers!
