Burlesque At Its Finest
It's that time again... to burlesque! The stunning Holly J'aDoll, the award winning producer of The Peel, and Miss Kitka's House of Burlesque bring you Sirens and Searchlights, a fun and flirty 1940s-style burlesque graduation production celebrating diversity, body positivity and good old fashioned bump 'n' grind.

Miss Kelly Ann Doll, 2013 Winner of Miss Burlesque and internationally renowned burlesque star, will be hosting the spectacular debut of these burlesque vixens. The show will feature student group and solo numbers alongside special guest act Mystique Rose (on aerial hoop) and more to be announced.

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.

About Miss Kitka's House of Burlesque:

Established in Canberra in 2003, Miss Kitka's House of Burlesque is on a mission to change the world with burlesque, one person at a time. MKHB has taught hundreds of ladies (and men!) the art of vintage tease without sleaze.

Following completion in three levels of courses, Kitka students perform a full-scale themed burlesque show, with profits being donated to charity.

Kitka's returned to Sydney last year, taught by star graduates Holly J'aDoll and Cherry Lush.

So come out and support your local burlesque community at Slide and the charity Wayside Chapel on the 27th of March. It's guaranteed to be a fun night out, one you won't soon forget.
