With this grant, Buttercup was able to offer Panel Skirt lessons to select students. This mentorship included lessons on construction and performance movements of the iconic burlesque costume piece. A burlesque performer's costume is a very important tool, helping to set a performer apart and ensure a lasting career in the art form. With this mentorship, Buttercup hopes to share and pass down the lessons she has learned from burlesque legends and from her experience as a professional performing artist.
