Hi my name is Kelsey,
I have been dancing only for four and a half years, and ever since I first went on that stage, I have struggled to come off it. To be a dancer you don’t have to start out young (I didn’t); funds were the only thing stopping me from starting at a very early age, and with these classes, you would hardly notice your purse getting lighter every time you come.
When I first began these classes I was insanely shy; I was instructed to ‘pull sexy faces’ and ‘hump the chair’: phrases that had never been said to me before, and that’s what made it fun. It felt like a new me was growing-my inner performer was waking up.
Since joining BURLESQUE I have had the privilege to be on the cabaret team, attend shows, galas, I was nominated for the instructor’s choice category in our ‘Open Stage Night’ events. Even though I didn’t win ‘Open Stage Night’, I was chosen by other class members to compete for ‘best class’ at two Annual Shows (2016 and 2017), in which I did. Winning wasn’t the best part, it was being chosen by everyone, that felt amazing! I even had the chance to perform at PRIDE this year (2018), and the reaction we got was phenomenal!
I personally know that this is one of the best ways to build confidence, boost self-esteem and meet an entire new family that would jump over hurdles to meet your needs and see you succeed. So come on ladies, join in the fun, get your bums in seats and ‘SHOW ME HOW YOU BURLESQUE!’
