I teach Burlesque Hens Parties in Wellington, they run for one hour and I have a Wellington City studio to host the session in. Please email me for more info (don’t forget to add the date to your message). See below for a Wellington burlesque hen’s party referral.
For hens parties:
Miss La Belle or one of her talented and trained Hostess’ would show a demo, then you’ll be taken through an entertaining dance lesson in the art of classic burlesque. Everyone would learn bump and grind, sassy glove peeling and how to walk like a showgirl. With a bit of fuss over the Hen (if wished). The lesson finishes with everyone learning a fun routine that gets many giggles. The hen then may be agreeable to performing the routine (along with assistance from the Hostess or other party goers) for everyone to enjoy. At the end of the session the hostess will get everyone into great showgirl/pin-up poses for photos.
Will take 60 mins in total and we bring gloves and music for the lesson. We also have a studio to host the lesson in too (at no extra cost) around Cuba street. Please email me for more info on pricing.
Perhaps you would like to hire me for a performance? Or maybe an interesting photo portfolio, please enquire by contacting me directly and lets talk.
Feedback from a Wellington hen’s party
“Thank you so much for the fabulous burlesque taster class you ran for my hen’s do. It was such a fun afternoon, and my bridesmaid’s really came up with the perfect hen’s entertainment.
When the girls first mentioned it to me I was initially a wee bit apprehensive – not surprising with one bridesmaid having recently given birth, the other with a broken leg, my Mum and my future mother-in-law, along with close friends of differing generations there as well – I was a bit concerned that I’d be on show and the only one taking part and not sure whether I even really wanted to do that!
I really needn’t have worried though. Your performance was so inspiring – dazzling, full of intrigue and a little bit saucy and was very empowering to watch. It was fascinating to learn about the costumes you wear and a little bit of the history behind the genre as well. Your relaxed manner and fun style of teaching meant the lessons you gave us were pitched perfectly. As you know, this resulted in a lot of laughter and frivolity when we put our best saucy glove-removing and shimmying new moves into practise! This really turned out to be the perfect hen’s activity and I loved the fact that everyone was able to, and indeed did, take part and get into the swing of things.
The afternoon was definitely heaps of fun, and I think it’s fair to say that all the women went away with a new sense of cheekiness and self-confidence instilled in us all. I know that the men were definitely envious and keen to see photos when they heard about our afternoon!
Thank you again so much for helping my hen’s to be such a successful event!” MP
