Meltingly good

We started designing our latest routine in March. It was a lot cooler then.

We're adding the final touches to it now. In August. It's hot. Very hot. We're regretting just a tad the March choice of feather boa, gloves and other props.

Yesterday, on a steamy, breathless, sultry summer's day, we sweated and slithered and shone as we rehearsed the routine for the September term. With feathers stuck to neck, gloves refusing to peel off, fringe melted to forehead, and clothes positively drenched, we soldiered on heroically.

Even in this hothouse, there was fun to be had. The floor routine with little kicky mermaid legs is a positive delight when you roll onto your belly to see one of your partners in sequins thrashing her feet madly about two inches from your nose, clearly confused as to which leg she should be kicking when.

Ah, showgirls, you have a treat coming when we launch this number in September. Get ready for new props and a slick, witty, smile of a routine... if we say so ourselves.

See you on 7th September!

Yours, designing for deliciousness,

Therapy for the body and soul

We’ve just been allowed out to play with a lovely networking group for therapists*. We were invited to talk to yesterday's monthly meeting - twelve men and women, all with different therapy and healing skills and qualifications – about Burlicious, what we do, why we do it, and why it’s such a miracle of a tonic and a boost.

What a nice morning! A bit of introductory chat and then into the larger room for a demo, followed by the all-important chance to try the Burlicious treatment for themselves. As the dulcet tones of Lady Marmalade slammed through the peace and quiet of this country house retreat, our therapists were soon up and shaking their groove thang with the best of them.

Perked, as usual, by the experience of seeing people dance and laugh and dance and laugh, we then packed up our medicine chest and headed back to Burlicious Towers for an afternoon of choreography.

We slave for you, showgirls, we really do! J

Yours, enjoying spreading cheer and daftness,
