Term time only commencing 05/09/2018
12 St James Row, Halstead House, Burnley, Burnley, Lancashire
Dance has always been my passion, I was lucky enough to pursue dance throughout my life and become part of a cabaret troupe that worked throughout the Costa Blanca before being employed to work as an in-house entertainer at a hotel in Tenerife.
Dance took a back seat when we decided to start a family back in 2008. Three children later and my self-esteem and confidence had taken a huge hit and although I longed to get back to my dancing roots I never felt comfortable at the various classes I tried.
I found Burlesque Chair Dance in May 2017 and I instantly felt at home. I finally found something that my thirty-year old post pregnancy body could do and somewhere where I felt welcome and part of a team rather than just a number.
The turning point for me to become an instructor was being asked to join the group of ladies from class and take part in the annual show. Performing on stage after all those years felt amazing and the confidence it gave me was incredible.
I was given a lot of encouragement from family and my BCD instructor Sexi Becsi, it was their belief in me that got me over that final hurdle to become an instructor.
Burlesque Chair Dance is more than just a fitness class, it lives and breathes by its mission ‘To get Fit, Lose weight, Build Confidence and have FUN!!’ I want to help you find your inner burlesque star and have FUN whilst doing it.
