As I mentioned last week, I was off to try out a taster session of a Burlesque dance class at the weekend, and I promised to let you know how I got on… Well, it certainly didn’t disappoint! I dragged one of my girlfriends along with me for support and I’m pleased to say we had a right good giggle from start to finish. I think I may have performed a little better if I’d alone going to the class alone, as I was rather distracted by her pouty face and my showing off!
I’m pleased to report that the class contained everything I’d hoped for; strutting our stuff in heels, striking pin-up poses, and throwing sexy shapes like “The Marilyn”. And best of all we had props to use! The burlesque teacher (in full corset and sparkly bra, I might add) had brought along slinky gloves so that we could learn to take them off in a sultry fashion, and fluffy feather boas for twirling and shimmying during the dance routine that we learnt.
All in all, a fun class, not really a workout class, but really enjoyable. I’m hoping to go to the permanent burlesque class when the dance school’s autumn schedule starts up in sept, so I must have enjoyed myself! I’ve always had pretty burlesque tutus on my website www.TutusWingsandPrettyThings.com but who knew that I’d need one for myself?!
