Slip into your slingbacks and waggle your tail feathers....

It's on! We're back! Bigger (literally 😀) and better than ever. Well, if not better, at least every bit as daft and fabulous as ever!

Class starts again in a couple of weeks. They say you can't teach an old showgirl new tricks. Prove us wrong, ladies, and turn up at the Reculver & Beltinge Memorial Hall CT6 6PL in time to get changed and ready for 7.30pm on Weds 22nd Sept. Yes, that's a new venue and a new time. The door closes sharp at 7.30 but should be open from 7. 

Carriages at 8.30pm on the dot so we can de-feather and remove our gorgeousness from the hall by 8.45pm.

Parking is limited to nearby residential streets. 

Class is £7. You pay only for the classes you do and you do not need to commit to future classes. Apologies for the increase in price, showgirls - we're paying more for the hall and for insurance. We're still keeping the price as low as we can. 

Payment is online rather than in cash (although we'll accept cash as a fallback). Payment details are coming to you by another route. 

We have a brand new routine tucked in our fishnets for later, and have chosen for this relaunch a routine we havne't danced for over five years. If our rehearsal was anything to go by, it should be a bit of a gentle car crash!

We know that about half our showgirls can't make the first class. As you regulars know, that's no problem. If you have never been to our classes before and are thinking about joining, it would be lovely to see you. Email us on burlicious@gmail.com if you would like to know more. 

Well, that's enough sensible and practical stuff from us for one post. Doubtless normal service will resume as the term progresses 😊. 

Yours, so looking forward to laughing with you again,

Still here. Still waiting.

Who would have thought it, dahlinks? We are still not back in class. So, a little update is due. 

We absolutely, definitely want to dance again. We miss our showgirls and our shabby little hall terribly. However, a couple of challenges mean that we are still obliged to be showgirls-in-waiting. 

Firstly, our venue is not Covid compliant - we need to provide each of us with 100sq ft. Frankly, in our little hall, that means half of us would be dancing at the bus stop, listening to instructions being yelled out of the window. Entertaining as that would be for the locals, the risk of feathers getting soggy and flesh getting chafed on pavements is too high to be contemplated.

Secondly, the Sparkly Bra Pixie's work timetable is a changeable thing at the mo., and so we're not yet clear whether our usual Wednesday evening slot will continue to be the most convenient time for her in the future. 

On the upside, we have a routine good to go. Well, I say that. What I mean is that we had a routine good to go a year ago. Now we have some vague memories and a few pages of notes. That should make for a hilarious relaunch when the time comes.

So, when we know more, we'll email all you regulars and, if we do have to change things, we'll ask you about avalability for different time slots and see how many of you are ready to roll about the floor with us again. 

Until then, savour your strutting; crisp up your quickies; and keep your flowering fresh (hmm, that sounds a little odd).

Yours, properly impatient now,

Showgirls in waiting

45 weeks without Burlicious.

45 weeks without our gorgeous, witty, warm and bubbly showgirls.

45 weeks without the pre-class anticipation of choosing an outfit and getting ready to join the troupe for an hour of daftness and restorative mental balm.

45 weeks without the dancing – without the hilarious, beautiful, chaotic, sexy, individual yet coordinated, bloody stunning dancing. 

45 weeks without that welcoming virtual hug of female company – without the news, the updates, the laughs, the shared frustrations and furies, the shared triumphs too. 

Yep, we miss you. 

But don’t take our silence to mean that we don’t plan to come back. Hell, no! We may be even older when we finally meet again (and, in my case at least, a tad fatter), but we are not yet ready to hang up our fishnets and feathers; our satins and our stilettos; and our corsets and our multiple pairs of drawers.

We will strut together again. We promise. 

Yours, "resting" in the meantime, as the actors say,

Burlicious x
