We're looking for a President, Treasurer and Wellbeing and Inclusion Ambassador!


We aim to create a safe environment and encourage a sense of empowerment, confidence and general happiness. We welcome all shapes and sizes, genders and people with no experience or professionals. Nobody takes themselves too seriously and our main promise is that you will have lots of fun.

What is Burlesque?

Burlesque is a unique art of clothing removal – not ‘just stripping’ – a common misconception.

As a performing art it incorporates dance, acting, comedy and satire! Everyone has their unique style and we love it all: classical and neo burlesque, singers and dancers. We are a family of glitz, glam, sequins and sexiness.

Burlesque broadens the definition of beauty in a way that is inclusive of everyone. You'll find performers with varying body types, styles, tastes, personalities and personas. It's a creative outlet of expression whereby you can have complete control of your artistic style. We have performers that never remove any clothing and others who bare all!

We teach classes on confidence, danceclothing removal, hair and makeup skills, costume making, choreography, performance, hosting skills, prop usage and we also host self-care and welfare sessions.

Extra special classes include balloon popbelly dancingfeather fansveil fans and isis wings and we are expanding our society equipment so that everyone can learn how to use them!
