Ungirdling for pleasures to come

Another delicious Burlicious term of dancing closes as Christmas approaches. We'll be unlacing our corsets, slipping out of our stilettos, peeling off our fishnets, and getting ready for a few days of a different kind of sensual pleasure.

Of course, that kind of sensual pleasure may well have implications come January for the viability of the rather more contoured elements of the Burlicious wardrobe, but we'll cross that bridge (or that additional podgy barrier) when we come to it.

Thank you, Showgirls, for a term full of fun and triumph and delight and daftness. Last night, it must be said, was an absolute scream. Loving your work and your company, as always.

We look forward to seeing you again in 2018. First class will be on Wednesday 10th January. 

Yours, wondering if it's tooooo early for a glass of Christmas champagne,

To flange, or not to flange...

We Burlicious three are, of course, mistresses of invention. It is with some pride that we announce to the world the birth of yet another new dance term – the flange.

“Flange,” we think, is a delicious word, ripe with smutty overtones, especially when it appears in a routine in which the wider gusset is definitely “de rigueur”.

However, in this case you’ll be relieved to know that one flanges to aid the peeling off of a glove. 

Experience shows that using a slippery, satin-gloved hand to remove another, equally slippery, satin glove is tricky. There's just no purchase. The flange, then, is what we shall henceforth call the pre-loosened and lengthened fingertip of the glove to be removed, making the job of grasping it firmly in the other hand much, much easier.

An appropriate instruction would therefore be: “Flange now, showgirls, while your back is to the audience”.

Just a small contribution to the English language. Feel free to use it with our compliments.

Yours, developing the dictionary,

Burlicious x
