April O'Peel

Artist Statement

I create through Burlesque because I believe in diversity, variety and multiformity. I aspire to be counted among the best in Burlesque by using Fantasy, Theatrics, Humor, Sexuality, Body Positivity, and Dance in order to create Joy, Positivity and Celebration.

Often my work is completely inspired by music. I can often “see” music; envisioning story or choreography. Other work is inspired by character. I often create Burlettas centering around fantastical, outrageous, and over the top characters. I am also inspired by happiness and aim to connect with my audience through laughter. Many of my comedic pieces involve regressive humor using infantile, sexual or aggressive behavior. My current philosophy for Burlesque choreography has been greatly influenced by the pageantry of the Vegas Showgirl and the art of Clown.

My experience at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in 2010 has inspired my current works to become more of a blending of new and old genres. I attempt to marry the two eras while at the same time challenging and exploring traditional conventions about dance, art, comedy, and body image.
