Burlesque show of 2016 has come and gone. The rehearsals, the costume planning, the nervousness and excitement all built to a fantastic show for family and friends to enjoy.
But why burlesque???
As a young girl I like most girls was enrolled in multiple dance classes... But I never completed a term. Was it my lack of coordination? My lack of focus? or ability that lead to me becoming an adult that couldn't dance?
I had zero confidence in my side-step-tap type of dad dancing and so would hide as a bench warmer at clubs when out with my friends, completely avoiding eye contact afraid I would be asked to dance.
It was something that made a big impact on how I felt about myself and needed to change... The answer was burlesque!
My best friend and I started classes together, and each week dancing with beautiful women who each had their own stories; their own reasons for burlesque, confidence grew, friends were met and a lot of laughs were had.
I treasure class for that one hour I can look into the mirror and love the girl I have created. A sassy, strong, sexy and Beautiful woman! Who now not only dances at the club, but clears the whole dance floor when she dances with her best friend
