So what is Burlesque?

Burlesque is considered an art form within the dance community having been popularised during the 1940’s in New York. Burlesque is commonly associated with stripping however, it also has a more classy and tasteful approach to it. As part of the society you would learn the non-stripping aspects of this dance style which would include a sexy style of movement using a number of props such as chairs, ties and hats to a range of music, as well some tasteful elements of stripping down to whatever you are comfortable in! This is a fun experience for all! Our society is incredibly diverse, so no matter what shape, size, ethnicity, or even dance ability you are, it dosen't matter, we are all there for the same reason and accept anyone with open arms, so whether you have never danced before, or danced all your life you are welcome to come along!

BCU Burlesque is a society that aims to enrich your life through the art of burlesque dancing. We run weekly classes that enhance your confidence and sex appeal in a safe environment. We also run various drinking and non-drinking social activities to make friends and have fun!

Come have some fun, de-stress, get fit and sexy!
