July - Ballet Costume Intensive -8 Days with 2 day pre prep webinar.
Thank you for your interest in attending Halsey Onstage’s Annual Ballet Costume Intensive! We are so excited to spend over a week simply creating with you! This workshop will leave you with a complete set of costumes, both a ballet bodice and tutu with a men’s tunic. We do not expect you to completely fiinish with both looks, but you will leave with the knowledge you need. It should be enough time, but everyone works at a different pace. We will provide one lunch mid seminar, we will also take an evening meal together somewhere in Chicago.
We will also arrange A field trip visit on day to either the Joffrey, Opera, Cinespace or Steppenwolf costume shop.
All segments will be taught by Travis Halsey with assistance. Travis exclusively teaches Halsey Onstage courses and at select universities, so make sure you book this class before it fills up! Space will be limited to 6 students so each student can get the attention they deserve.
You are welcome to bring your own fashion fabrics and trims, but we will also be visiting the very large warehouse, Textile Discount Outlet on Day 2 or 3, where you will be able to use the Halsey Onstage wholesale discount on top of very affordable prices. Halsey Onstage has multiple industrial sewing machines available, otherwise there are domestic Bernina machines available to rent if you prefer to not bring your own. Machine rental is 25$ for the course.
We will host a pre webinar for patterning, and any other discussions to help folks prepare for the course. (those date(s)) to be arranged.
This course includes the following supplies including but not limited to, coutil, spiral steel boning, netting, linings, and thread. You are asked to please bring your own fashion fabrics and trim or use the shopping day!
Most days include open studio time in the evening. During this time, there will be no instruction, but it is highly recommended that you use this time to complete the day’s construction goals to stay on schedule.
