About the Instructor:
J.D. Hickcock performs in burlesque with a twenty-year career in costuming for the performing arts - including opera, theatre, and dance. He has designed, created, and maintained costumes for numerous local, regional, national, and international companies, productions, and performers.
J.D. Hickcock (Star of Stage, Screen, and Stag Show) was born an innocent boy. Armed with wanderlust and a knack for artfully dropping his pants, he quickly began unbuckling the Bible Belt to Houston, Texas. Though he never dreamed of the limelight, Mr. Hickcock has been seen in sordid spectacles and raunchy festivals produced across the U.S. of A.
He is the reigning “King of Sin” from the Sin City Burlesque Festival (Las Vegas, NV), was titled “King of Burlesque” at the 2015 San Antonio Burlesque Festival, and has been showcased in the New York Boylesque Festival, Windy City Burlesque Festival (Chicago, IL), Houston Burlesque Festival, Dallas Burlesque Festival, Texas Burlesque Festival (Austin, TX), and Southwest Burlesque Showcase (Albuquerque, NM).
Along the dirty road, J.D. has headlined the 2016 San Antonio Burlesque Festival and Inaugural 2016 Texas Queerlesque Festival (Dallas, TX). He has been a Featured Performer for Carnivale de Sensuale (Denver, CO), a Competition Judge for the 2016 San Antonio Burlesque Festival, and is a Guest Instructor at the Austin Academy of Burlesque.
