The next in our series of Guest Teacher Blogs is a long time friend of all things luscious – It’s Trixi Tassels! Trixi is going to be guest teaching a tassel twirling class and if you have ever wanted to improve your tasseling technique- this is the class for you. This time we get
What is your first memory of performing?
Tell us about the best and worst parts of being on stage.
Best parts are when you get that magical connection with the audience and they’re completely in the palm of your hand. You can be doing absolutely nothing on stage but they are totally enthralled. The worst parts are when you’re not feeling the act, not in the moment for some reason, and then that translates to your energy and that prohibits you connecting with the audience.
Do you have any traditions or rituals on the day of a show?
I try to eat lightly and I don’t drink until after I’ve performed. I go through my costuming spreadsheet to check I have every little item from the big costume items right down to the little things like spirit gum and jewellery.
How do you develop a new routine? Tell us a bit about the creative process.
Whats’s your favourite way to relax after a show?
With lots of wine or gin! It’s nice to hang out backstage for a bit away from the crowds to chill out a bit before the hustle bustle of heading out to the public space.
Do you have any secret talents?
Apart from being one of the world’s best tassel twirlers, I make a mean risotto.
Song you’re currently listening to on repeat?
Dead Radio by Rowland S. Howard. It’s got the best opening line to an album ever.
We’ve got our tassels on ready to enjoy this class on Saturday 26th August. Book your place now to avoid disappointment: http://littleladyluscious.co.uk/summer-workshops/
