Which Folly group act is your favourite to perform?
My favourite to perform is Showgirl. I feel so sexy and confident in the corset! I think it's a real classic burly number and who doesn't love diamonds, feathers and Follys!
What is on your wish list of places to perform?
I'd love to perform on the West End, or Broadway. NYC in general and Crazy Horse, Paris. They're all places that I adore and have dreamt of performing!
Who would be your vintage icon?
I have so many vintage idols, obviously queen Dita!!! But Bettie Page, Tempest storm and I keep getting told I look like Lucille Ball (my favourite and the original female comedian) and Rita Hayworth.
What's in the pipeline for your next act?
I'm in the process of making an Usherette/Cigarette girl costume, but being obsessed with all things vintage, I really want to do a damsel in distress/heartbroken goddess!
What's your favourite way to spend a Sunday?
My favourite way to spend a Sunday is naked bed day, watching Walking Dead and crocheting!
is a Burlesque inspired dance fitness class, created by real Showgirls - The Folly Mixtures
The class combines both cardio and toning work to give you an all over workout with a wiggle. We had such a demand for classes all over the UK, we now hold instructor training days across the country and have lots of new classes popping up all the time.
We were featured in The Metro: "I'm sad when we start to cool down - the last hour has flown by - but I've had more fun in Burlexercise than any other fitness class"
... Vicki-Marie Cossar. We were also in Vogue Magazine as one of the hottest new fitness classes!
If you love dance, fitness and Burlesque, and think you have what it takes to become a Showgirl Instructor, we would love to have you on one of our training days. We will be in Birmingham and London before the end of the year and in Scotland at the start of 2017. All of our current classes, training days and a little glimpse at Burlexercise in action can be found here!
We will leave you with The Burlexercise moto to take through the week with you.... "If in doubt...SHIMMY IT OUT!"
