I always thought I would like burlesque. I was the typical child that didn’t like to be watched dancing at parties but loved dance classes. Fine with direction, terrified to be out there on my own! A small ginger kid with terrible teeth (not kidding- can you say “head brace”?) I didn’t exactly exude confidence! But deep down I harboured a secret desire to be some sort of exotic, carnival, dancing queen! Oh how I wanted to be in the film Dirty Dancing!! (I would have even carried a watermelon!)
Burlesque is like a wonderful potion and the best bit, is that through classes I get to help prescribe some of this magic. Burlesque has given me the gift of helping other women feel better about themselves. More than everything else, I adore watching women come away from our classes saying, “I have my confidence back” and “I love myself more”. Burlesque is you at your most wonderful- always.
