Had a great day today at Jacob’s Vintage Fair in the centre of Cardiff, running burlesque taster sessions for the customers. I think a lot of them were surprised when the big band burlesque music boomed out and I beckoned them into my secluded room of burlesque! Most ladies were eager to give it a try, some were shy but soon warmed up, and by the end of the short taster sessions they were already walking and posing a whole different way.
The classes took place in a private curtained-off area, which meant that although no-one could see us, they could hear me bellowing, “… and… BIG SHIMMY!” at regular intervals.
I met some lovely new Cardiff burlesquers-to-be whose homework before the Cardiff burlesque classes start is to think up their burlesque name.
Cardiff burlesque classes will start again in February 2012, with a FREE TASTER (whoop whoop) on Sunday 5 February 2012, 3-4pm at Rhiwbina Memorial Hall, 1 Lon Ucha, Cardiff, CF14 6HL. This is a totally free burlesque class, but you must email email@example.com to book your place.
Hope to see you there!
