Voulez vous dancer avec moi?

A few fantastic femme fatales for you!

Themed dance parties are a great way to get any hen weekend started. And there are lots of different dance styles you can try out too. 80s themed classes or cheerleading sessions are always a sure fire way to have fun and break the ice. But what if you want to try something a little more…risqué?

Hen parties and hen weekends offer the perfect opportunities to let your inhibitions go and try something new. So how about taking a burlesque class?

It’s not every day you’ll get the opportunity to perform in your very own dance troupe with feather boas and an array of props: unless your name is Dita Von Teese. In which case, you probably don’t need our help!

Burlesque is a dance form you can trace back to Victorian times and beyond. It came out of a desire to make fun of things that were a little too serious – and put a sparkle back in everyone’s lives.

Nowadays, you might associate it with Christina Aguilera performing “Lady Marmalade” or the sexy routines by the Pussycat Dolls. Whatever the reason you know about it, burlesque is a simply fabulous way of celebrating a bride-to-be’s last moments of freedom! So a burlesque themed dance party could be just perfect for your hen weekend!

Burlesque dancing is becoming more and more popular with hen parties. Not only is it a great way to exercise and have fun: it’s great for building confidence too.

Vanessa Robinson is Events Manager at Pink Kiss, the hen party specialists. She says: “Burlesque is a great way to help you develop your confidence. In just one class you can learn the perfect poise, using props to present yourself with ease. This glamorous dance form offers a great form of escapism where you can discover something new and exciting about yourself.”

But you needn’t let the fun stop there. Want to make your hen weekend work to a theme? Try out other activities like making your own lingerie. Or you could head over to a spa for escapism of the more tranquil variety. Whatever you decide upon, a hen weekend featuring a bit burlesque will be a time to remember!

So, if you want to try something different for a hen weekend, think about burlesque. It’s a great way to exercise, build confidence and have fun. Learning a glamorous routine with the aid of props is a great way to start your hen weekend.
