Shimmying in the rain

Well, we could be.

Despite half the troupe being off on their hols, we have accepted the invitation to shake our groove thangs as part of The Real Full Monty show in August. As a troupe we shall be small, but perfectly formed. It will be, as one of our number commented, a genuine End of the Pier show and it promises to be a giggle and a half.

Of course, if it chucks it down with rain, it could put a teeny dampener on the boa number, but we shall cross that soggy bridge if we come to it.

Showgirls, we can squeeze in another two if you fancy joining us. Let us know - rehearsals start soon.

Yours, wondering whether we should adapt our parasol routine for brollies,

The casting couch beckons

Showgirls, we've been asked whether we would like to perform at the Real Full Monty show on the Pier on 11 August. The event looks like an absolute hoot and we'll be helping to raise money for a number of cancer charities. This is the event that a local vicar has said is potentially immoral and titillating, and that it might encourage impure thoughts.

Despite this dire warning, there is no hint that we need to take off more than we usually do. :-)

We Burlicious Three are up for it. Have a think as to whether you might like to join us. Normal rules apply:

  • it's entirely voluntary
  • only do it if you think you will enjoy it
  • we'll organise rehearsals
  • you can always, always pull out before the event if you're not happy that you are making the progress you would like at rehearsals
  • the number of showgirls we will take will be determined by the number that we think we can fit on the stage.
Simple, no?

Think about it and we'll chat on Weds. 

Yours, getting ready to crack that rehearsal whip,

Brace yerselves

The longest tights in the world joined us in class this week. Secured (well, almost) under the fabulous bazoooom of the Voluptuous Jules, they rolled themselves down cheekily with a twang at the slightest provocation, causing her to yank them up again towards her armpits like a pair of errant fishing waders.

This almost distracted attention away from the surprise success of one troupe member in showgirl capture, as she deftly placed the heel of one shoe in the tied loop of the shoelace of the other and came very close to felling herself in a flurry of satin and sequins. It's what the audience dreams of, Dear Reader, a showgirl of their very own brought down in the wild, then netted and smuggled hurriedly home.

All this and the bewildering step-swivel-flick of our crisp tango flick kicks, and we had the usual hour of entertainment, epithets and steady, delicious progress.

It's coming along beautifully, Showgirls, it really is.

Yours, wondering about braces for tights,

A tempting array

Apologies for the silence, Dear Reader. We hung up our corsets for half term, and since then we have been concentrating on choreography for the next routine (just you wait for its launch!). However, here we are, back at class again and ready to razzle.

We've just launched our routine to "Temptation", so it's not too late to come along and join in if you fancy it next week. Frankly, our quick demo at the start of class on Wednesday revealed that we might need a bit of a brush up on a couple of the steps ourselves. :-)

We love the fact that, as a group, we are a walking, talking, sashaying demonstration of the diversity of the female body. Take leg length as an example. Short legs, long legs. Tights bagging round the ankle, tights constantly having to be hauled up over the posterior. Two women, same style tights, one with the pattern at knee height and one with it way up the thigh. The compare and contrast revelations are excellent value, it must be said.

Rejoicing in this fabulous variety of build and style, Wednesday's troupe did themselves proud - responding like clockwork to the instructions "and turn, sit, pause, TITS!" They look great, they really do. Who said we all have to look exactly the same? Our gorgeous bag of allsorts looks amazing!

Yours, applauding variety,
