"I really enjoyed the day. It was exciting and glamorous and gave a good comprehensive introduction to all aspects of burlesque. I particularly enjoyed the work on choreographic strategies and performance techniques. I have been a professional dancer in the past and had a dance training, but havn't done a lot of serious dancing for a number of years due to having children.....There was a nice friendly atmosphere and it was great to do some serious dance work in a nice supportive group of ladies! Thanks Keda X"
