Welcome to the House of Burlesque

Whether you are looking for a really fun fitness class, a girls night out, hens night party, a beauty make over or some fabulous lingerie, House of Burlesque may be just the ticket.

Hula Hooping
Along with dance and performance classes, there's also hula hooping. You don't have to be experienced to have a go, they offer beginners and experienced classes. The instructor Karen (a.k.a. Miss Ellaneous) is sure to delight you.

What about the health benefits:

Hula hooping has been found to trim your waist, hips, and thighs,whilst strengthening abdominal and lower back muscles. But the benefits don't stop there - it's also a fun aerobic session, which strengthens your abdomen, back, pelvis, and hips muscles. Thus assisting to support your spine, improve balance, posture, and your gorgeous sense of agility.

Karen (a.k.a. Miss Ellaneous) is a circus and hula hooping er performer and teacher. She has performed on ABC TV, Foxtel, the Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide Fringe Festivals, P&O Cruises, Circus Aoteaora, Crown Casino and Museum Victoria.

Take a look at her in action here:
