I spoke with Holly J'aDoll about why burlesque is so popular today and she had this to say about its revival; "Women are drawn to the classes to explore. It gives women the freedom to get up on stage and... escape the daily grind, to bring your bag of feathers and high heels, to get up on the stage."
Every woman should have a go," she claims. "You become comfortable with your body and get a lot of self confidence out of it. "
"From the start of this class in May to now, it's been so rewarding to see the body positivity the girls have gained. Students really start embracing their bodies for what they are. You learn to be your most authentic self, that authenticity that burlesque gives you is so hot. It's the most beautiful thing is to watch"
Holly adds, with a twinkle in her eye, "Know what your flaws are, own them, and rock them!"
[ADVERT]Why should someone come to the show Holly?
To have a fun unique experience. There's something for everybody; comedy, sexiness, gorgeous costumes. It's a really fun girls night out in a beautiful cabaret environment at Slide.
Also, any women that are interested in burlesque, in performing, ever had an inkling, curious to what it's all about, I will be there to chat with people about classes as well."
All profits from the show will be donated to The Wayside Chapel which is another great reason to support this fantastic show and the grassroots efforts of the burlesque community.
