"We had three stylist and they were all fabulous. Really made us all feel a million dollars. All our party had a wonderful time and all our hair and makeup looked amazing. Really set us up for our 1940s themed night out"

Charleston Hen Party - April 2015- Rachel

"The manager of the club was very helpful and was able to serve us drinks from the bar whilst we were there, which was great! Kirsty was fantastic! She got us all involved and made us all feel comfortable. By the end of the lesson we were all thrilled that we had learnt a dance from scratch! From the first email I sent, you were always fantastic at getting back to me promptly and finding a venue that suited our location and timings. Thank you very much!"

Charleston Hen Party - March 2014 - Anne

"The dance lesson this was brilliant fun, I hadn't thought much in advance about what was to be expected of us but the two hours went really fast. It was relatively easy enough to manage the moves which made it more enjoyable (I have previously done the pole dancing class on my hen which was impossible). Although I had arranged it and was therefore worried about the others enjoying themselves - i managed to relax and really enjoy myself and smiled and laughed so much my cheeks ached!"

Burlesque Party  - September 2012.

I really appreciated the ease of being able to contact you and how 'simple' the process was.  It takes a lot to organise 26 women (20 for the Burlesque) from all over the country to arrive in Birmingham for appox. the same time and place so to have a 'ease' of booking was brilliant. Rosy your teacher was fantastic and made everyone feel very comfortable and was very charming and added to the enjoyment of the lesson.  We could not have had a better teacher.  As you will appreicate that ladies of different  ages and sizes are not always confident in a semi state of undress and it was thanks to Rosy and her sense of fun that took that embarassement away and everyone just went for it. 
So once again, thanks for the organising, thanks for Rosy and we had a great time.

Everyone had a fantastic time! We all really enjoyed it, our two hours with Candy just went far too quickly! We spent the rest of our evening in sheffield throwing out the various moves we learnt, our fave was "LOOK... AT... MY ...SHOES!! And i don't think sheffield has ever seen so much shimmying!!! Thank you for a brilliant birthday party

Sexy Sailor Hen Party May 2011

It was great! I’m not sure what the full-on “burlesque” dance class would have been, but for our hen weekend the Sexy Sailor class was perfect. Not too full-on for those girls who were a little more shy, but lots of opportunity to wiggle and have a laugh for everyone involved. And not too overly-energetic either, so a great balance!

Burlesque Hen Party March 2011

Just wanted to say a big thank you for a fantastic hen party on Sunday! It was a brilliant day an everyone really enjoyed it! Thanks again

I joined Wanda's Derby beginners class two weeks ago. What fantastic fun and a good workout. I am over 50 so any more mature wanabees or should I say Wandabees don't be shy, get to your nearest class and have the time of your life.
Debra

Hiya , can't belive it's a yr since we all started ur class. Thanks I had such fun and really love every thing burlesque has givin me. 
Tasha( Ms Cherry Belle) xx

Where do i start, Its a great social event, ive made some lovely new friends and i like the atmosphere at the shows backstage, no-one is out to do you down, everyone will help you get ready, hair make-up, getting dressed etc. Its also done wonders for my body confidence, il never be a size 10 but i feel now that i can strut my stuff with the best of them and not have to hide away. To sum it up, if i can't make class, my house on a wednesday night is not a good place to be!!! Sarah

I was really nervous the first time I went to class but I shouldnt have worried, Bijoux Burlesque set a relaxed atmosphere where we could enjoy ourselves without being judged. I've felt my confidence grow since joining BB. Its been so fun trying out fans and learning lots of ways to remove stockings!
Hannah

I applied nervously to the course worried it would be something else I would fail. the truth is you cant fail! Bijoux burlesque teaches the routines easily and you find yourself enjoying the moves without over thinking. The lessons encourage you to meet new friends and It isn't all stripping it is dancing beautifully! You can guarentee coming out of the lesson feeling happy, confident and sexy everytime ...and its a great workout too!
