This is your chance to get in touch with your inner burlesque queen at Miss Maybe’s workshop on Sunday 25th October in Broadstairs.
Burlesque performer Miss Maybe promises to teach her students moves that will increase their confidence and inspire them to “unleash their inner minx”.
Miss Maybe is herself fascinated in the burlesque arts but also believes it has an appeal to women of all ages, shapes and sizes.
She said: “Burlesque celebrates every shape and size. There is no ideal shape. It celebrates who you are. I’ve been amazed at the confidence and feeling of elation just learning a few simple moves can give you.”
Miss Maybe added: “You don’t need any dance experience – and there’s no nudity involved! But there’ll be plenty of fun and giggles!”
There are three classes, one at 11am-12.30 for women over 50 or those have illness or surgery, the others at 1pm –2.30 and 2.30- 4pm open to all.
The burlesque class is a breast cancer fundraiser, with all proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Care charity.
Miss Maybe said: “Breast cancer is a cause close to my heart – my mum went through the treatment five years ago -- so I want to help in any way I can to both help raise funds for the cause and hopefully encourage women who have been through the illness to feel good about themselves.”
“No one should feel inhibited about coming, whatever age. My oldest lady has been 74. Wear whatever makes you feel good – sequins, boas, whatever.”
There will be afternoon tea and a raffle.
The workshop will be held in the Red Hall, 11 Grosvenor Road , Broadstairs, on October 25th, 11-12.30 and 1pm to 2.30pm and 2.30 to 4pm.
