Stafford’s first Burlesque class thrills women from 20 to 65

Ladies from the age of 20 to 65 are donning a feather bower and stockings to join Stafford’s first Burlesque dance workshop.

There has been a huge response to the new classes at the Groove Academy with women using the dance classes to gain confidence.

“We didn’t really know how people would react when we decided to teach burlesque dancing for the first time, but we have had women joining of all ages, shapes and sizes.

“The Burlesque classes allow women to show off in a sensual, not sexual, way and the outfits fit with the current trend for all things Vintage.”

Kate added: “The four week course is really helping to empower class members.

“We have had new class members who have come in as shrinking violets and they have flowered and grown their confidence and self-esteem.”

The classes are held at the Groove Academy’s studio, at the Northfield Centre, Stafford. Dancers are provided with a feather boa and gloves.

“We have had over 60s in the class and they’ve been amazing,” said Kate. “Many of them can give the young dancers a good run for their money.”
