Performer Workshops with Gala Vega

I’m offering two NEW lecture based workshops to kick your creativity into gear and hone your performances! The first workshop , CREATIVITY IS A DAILY PRACTICE is all about creativity and how to bring daily practices into your life so that those ideas start flying! The second workshop, MAKE THOSE PERFORMANCE VIDEOS WORK FOR YOU, is all about how to break down your performance videos to make them easier to watch, and easier to pinpoint your strong points and the points you will want to work on to level up! First class is at 1PM and second class is at 2:15PM. As these are new classes, I am offering a discount so each class is only $20, or $35 for both.

Week 5:
Tension and release
In this class we’ll cover how to use pauses effectively, how to create anticipation and tease in your routine, and how to use a few extra seconds to bring your routines from good to phenomenal. Prepare to feel vulnerable in the best of ways.

Week 6:
Posture and body awareness in burlesque
Learn how to hold your body in your movement to convey strength, power and confidence and get the amazing photos you want on stage. We’ll go over the ways to carry yourself that will allow you to embody the stage presence that wows your audience.

Week 7:
Neo/Classic burlesque
For those who have seen me perform, you know that I love to play with and blend both of these styles. In this class we’ll cover some effective exercises to fuse together the best elements of both classic and neo burlesque and go over some of my favourite movements.

Week 8:
Put a bow on it!
Let’s tie together all of the things you’ve learned over the past 7 weeks and celebrate!

Please advise me of any injuries to be aware of before class so I am able to plan accordingly and modify movements as required.

Proper footwear is required for this class – this can be character shoes or jazz shoes.

If you arrive late to class, you must warm yourself up to minimize chances of injuries. Cool downs are equally important to stay in class for as it will prevent you from injuring yourself after class.

Pastie-making 101: Super Easy and Fun!

Hi beauties! Now that Isle of Tease has wrapped, I can announce that i’m going to be offering this crafty, hands-on, beginner pastie-making class to a limited number of participants on Sunday, December 15th, in the Glanford area.

To register, please etransfer to, including the name I might know you by!

You know what makes an awesome holiday gift? Sparkly nipples!!

The class fee will be $50.00, and will include everything you need to design and make a pair of basic tasselled pasties in your choice of size and colour.

I’d like to focus on basic round pasties for this class, as we made a variety of shapes and styles the first time around and ran out of tassel-making time.

I will also include fun paints and up to 2 gross of rhinestones per participant in your choice of size and colour to embellish your designs with, and if you want additional stones to really oomph up your design, they will be available for purchase.

If you could bring your own scissors, hot glue gun, and e6000 fabrifuse, that would be super, otherwise we can share.

You will leave with an awesome pair of your own pasties!

If financial barriers prevent you from attending, please reach out and we will get you a spot.

Class is open to anyone interested, but won’t be suitable for little ones.

Will also organize ride-sharing once we know who is attending.

My bona fides…
Vogue Mahone, proprietor of Showgirl Sparkle, has long been enamoured of all things glamorous, opulent, and colourful.

With a background in art, graphic design, and crafts, Vogue became a burlesque performer in Victoria BC in 2016, and soon fell in love with the costumes, culture, history and traditions of burlesque.

Her shop, Showgirl Sparkle, launched in January of 2017, and she has handcrafted hundreds of pairs of pasties since!. Her intricate pasties, headpieces, hair flowers, and the embellishing work she creates on clients’ costumes are now worn by performers all over the world! The online shop also carries over 50 colours of flatback rhinestones in various shapes and sizes for the “sparkle-it-yourselfers”.

Vogue also loves sharing her passion for rhinestoning and embellishing costumes by teaching her class “Rhinestone 101”

A little bit about myself…
I have been dancing jazz and contemporary since the age of five and currently teach Latin and ballroom dance since 2018. I have performed all over Victoria for most of my life, and while doing so, I have discovered my love for burlesque and striptease about 2 years ago. I loved the way it made me love my body and boost my confidence. I have been on a mission to spread that joy to other people ever since!

These workshops will take place on the unceded land of the Lekwungen, songhees and Esquimalt people.

I enthusiastically welcome (but not limited to): POC’s, LGBTQ2S+ and non-binary folx.

ACCESSIBILITY: unfortunately Wild roots is not wheelchair accessible. The studio is up a flight of stairs and down a long corridor. I apologize for the lack of acsessbility at this new location. I am going to work hard to try and find an accessible location in the future. The washroom is gender neutral.The studio is a scent free space. The music will operate through the studios portable speaker ( one speaker) which I will attach to my iPod . I will have control over the sound level, but the room has great acoustics! The lights are fairly bright but are able to be dimmed down or up.

If you have any other questions please let me know 🙂
