Yesterday I went to see our Zumba instructor do her burlesque routine at The Greyhound hotel which is a iconic hotel in St. Kilda. I wasn’t really sure what to expect even though I had seen our instructors routine at Zumba class a few times.
The venue was packed, and there were people of all ages. All the performers had brought along their families and friends to cheer them on and help raise funds for the Beyond Blue foundation, which is an initiative to raise funds for people suffering from anxiety and depression.
It was a two hour show, filled with women of all shapes and sizes celebrating their bodies through self expression. Burlesque dancing is not for everyone, I know that I could never do it, but I really admired those ladies last night, they were so at ease with themselves, each one was unique and beautiful in their own way.
The evening ended with a unique twist, a wedding, between the hostess of the show and her Romeo that she had met online. It was romantic end to a lovely night.

Cher-Welcome To Burlesque (Instrumental)
Thank you 😊😊😊
I’d love to see a Burlesque show, but I don’t know if I could actually participate!
I’m with you, nice to watch but not for me. Xx
A show is one thing, but it would be fun to try burlesque with girlfriends, in a dark hall. Those girls are brave, good for them!! And a great cause too!
At least once in a lifetime. 😊
Should have sent an invite here to Spain, I never seen those burlesque dance plus if it´s for raise money for a foundation whatever it is makes me look good instead of a guy that just wanted to see girls with little clothe´s dancing. 😉
You would have loved it Charly I’m sure 😉
