Testimonials from scarlet ribbon school of burlesque pupils
My testimonial :
I started burlesque as I was intrigued in it as an art form and I love to dance.
What happened was much more. I gained a whole new circle of friends and an insight into a fun and glamorous world!
With Lacy as a teacher, she challenges me to go out of my comfort zone (which I need) but always supports me. The classes are fun and varied. Lacy researches burlesque techniques as well as bringing in experts in the field of dance to enhance our routines. Anyone who is thinking of joining, don't hesitate, It's fantastic
My testimonial: (which is probaby rubbish but I'm not great at these types of things so I apologise in advance):
Having seen ‘An Evening of Burlesque’ with a friend the other year and joked that I should become a dance I decided to look into local dance classes and stumbled upon a burlesque starter course happening in Mansfield.
I decided to join and give it a go because I wanted to do something different that I’d never tried before. I originally set out thinking I would probably stop after the initial start course but that came and went and I’ve found myself looking forward to my Friday night classes. I think one of the main reasons I love the classes is because of the fact it makes me feel a lot more confident and sexy (which I've never really felt before) and also the fact that the classes have allowed me to meet like-minded people and new friends.
My testimonial :
I love dancing and have tried a variety of different genres over the years! I saw some burlesque dancing on tv and fancied giving it a go. I found Bijoux Burlesque website easily and enrolled. I couldn't persuade any friends to join me so, I nervously turned up on that first evening, feeling self concious. I shouldn't have worried as I was very soon put at ease by Lacy. I thoroughly enjoyed that first lesson with other nervous ladies! I will always be glad I took that first step as my evenings spent with the group are brilliant. Learning new dances and laughing and chatting. I love it! Coming up to my second show and hope there will be many more! I would recommend it to anyone who loves a dance and a giggle!!
I wanted to start burlesque as i had tried a taster session in Nottingham but needed something closer to home. I found Lacy's classes very welcoming, full of fun and after a short period of time made some wonderful new friends. After a hard day at work and the demands of daily life i find that burlesque makes me feel sexy and feminine again. I am now hooked and cant wait for my weekly class x
