Showing what we can do

Burlicious Towers is positively a-buzz with plans for the future right now. We're very close to committing to an end-of-year show in which our Burlicious beauties can strut their stuff for an adoring audience. There's a lot to do, but we know it'll be worth it and that those showgirls who do decide tread the boards with us will absolutely love the experience... even if it's a knee-knocking thought initially.

Showgirls, if we didn't think you could do it superbly, we wouldn't have suggested it!

And we're on for some summer workshops so that our regulars can brush up their moves, as well as enticing women who can't get to our regular classes to boa up and join the fun. And did we mention the likelihood of cake and champagne after...? How could that be anything less than a perfect way to spend an afternoon?!

Yours, plotting and planning madly, being our own Miss Moneypenny with librarian spectacles and twinsets at the ready,

A jamboree bag of goodies

The snow outside did nothing to detract from the glow of our troupe of showgirls on Wednesday. Sterling progress was achieved with the intimate little threesome of a routine that we have designed for Black Velvet.

Our showgirls pony-trotted, white lightninged and wriggled gorgeously. Long evening gloves were used to devastatingly appealing effect to deliver cheeky little smacks on proffered rears. Sequinned leggings, satin corsets, skyscraper heels... we had the lot.

Next week we'll get onto the teapot slide, the flash (and, no, we're not suddenly introducing nudity. Trust us - your beautiful outfits are safe with us!) and the pop drop.

Can't wait.

Yours, with a head full of lyrics and steps,

Officially amazing

Showgirls, we have always known that you make an amazing job of the routines that we invent for you to dance. If you shimmy over and take a look at our "Show and Tell" page, you'll see that the local press agrees with us!

Yours, on the floor with amazement at your loveliness,

Planning to please

Listen up, showgirls, potential showgirls and our lovely groupies - we need your practical input on a number of ideas we're mulling over.

Firstly, we're getting to the point where our Wednesday class is full. So, if we were to add another class to the week, what day and time would suit you best? We're not asking our current troupe to shift to another slot, but if you know of anyone who would love to join us but who can't make Wednesdays at 8pm, when could she come? Alternatively, if you had the chance to change your class time, when would be your ideal time to come along?

Secondly, we plan to run a couple of workshops this summer. We're thinking of a half day workshop on a weekend. Help us out here - if you, or any of your friends, were interested in coming, would you prefer a Saturday or a Sunday; morning or afternoon? We're planning on lots of luscious dancing and then maybe a glass of something fizzy (no, not Tizer), and a smidgeon of gorgeous cake as a grand finale.

Thirdly, we're so proud of what our showgirls achieve in class, we want to run an end of term show so you can show your friends and family what you can do. We're currently looking at the 13th or 20th July. Troupe - do you fancy performing? If not, do you fancy coming along anyway? How many people might you bring with you? We're asking so we can start thinking now about the size of hall we'll need to book.

Finally, we have great plans to train up additional instructors, so we can make the Burlicious experience available to women far and wide. Do you know anyone who would love to do this? We hope to run our first licensing workshop this year. All we need now are some women who would like to step into this adventure with us!

Thoughts, ideas, preferences.... email them all to burlicious@gmail.com, or pop a message on the Facebook page, or tell us in class.

Yours, excited about the future,

Up close and personal

Off last night to be the entertainment for a burlesque-themed evening at the lovely Berry's Eatery. The Berry ladies are exceptionally gifted bakers, so we had the surreal experience of shimmying into our smalls in the back room whilst surrounded by delicious-looking cakes and baking ingredients. Mmmm.

Then it was out into the restaurant to dance four routines for a happy crowd. It's an intimate setting, requiring clever in-flight adjustment to avoid accidentally head-butting the bar or dealing audience members a swift blow to the side of the head whilst majestically sweeping out a leg.

We particularly liked the gentlemen who looked politely away when presented with a fishnetted derriere at very close quarters. We also liked those who slunk shyly down into their seat as we wandered about the crowd bestowing them with little strokes and ruffling hair as we passed.

All this and the added bonus of some of our favourite people in the audience made for a superb evening.

Yours, taking bookings now,
