Having taught in workshops in Germany with the indefatigable Rent-A-Muse since 2009, going back to teach the gorgeous ladies in the Rhur area is aways an absolute pleasure.
We started the day with a tried and tested routine that had gone down a storm with the Edinburgh and Glasgow burlesque classes, and certainly did the same in Germany. Using the theme ‘When a Good Girl Goes Bad’, the first workshop was a medical-inspired number based on the Barbara Windsor and Hattie Jacques characters from the classic British film ‘Carry on Matron’. With a soundtrack of Robert Palmer and Bon Jovi, the workshop descended from a cute pin-up style to dodgy 80s inspired striptease, complete with single bum cheek isolations. And the German ladies rocked it!
As enthusiastic as their workshop host, the ladies then proceeded to utterly wow me with their energy during a 2.5 hour can-can class. From perfection splicing to an enviably straight can-can chorus line, they didn’t let their energy wane during the workshop. Can-can whoops and frilly knickers aplenty, the German ladies gave it their all. It was great to see some familiar faces and meet some lovely new burlesque converts.
As they say in Germany – Bis bald, ladies!
