Introductions made, everyone feeling a bit more comfortable, we all donned our feather boas and long gloves (both purple, of course!) and got ready to learn some moves, guaranteed to make the boys go wild.
Some things that I took away from my lesson in Burlesque:
1. Carry your purse in the crook of your arm, you'll instantly look sexier and more appealing.
2. Don't rush into a room to find your friends, rather stop at the doorway and take time to scan your surroundings. As people's eyes naturally look towards the door, you need to make an entrance. Walk in with a confident swagger, and you will be sure to be noticed.
3. Perfect the sexy walk; walk "slow and steady" and after each step, pop your hip!
4. Slowly pulling down your glove to expose your elbow will make the boys freak! Just a little bit of skin is all it takes!
I learned a lot about myself from being able to let go and allow myself to be sassy. It was truly a lesson in self-confidence! I would totally do it again ;-)
