If you love music, dance moves and want to find the ‘new you’ that’s been hiding inside, Burlesquercise is for you!
In November 2007 I read a newspaper article about an exercise class called Burlesquercise. I was immediately intrigued by the concept and anxious to see what it was all about. It took only one class for me to be convinced that this was what I needed in my life to provide an enjoyable form of exercise and an opportunity to become empowered at the same time. My self-esteem needed some bolstering and support; Di’s class has certainly given reassurance that I am a beautiful human being, able to love myself for who I am and what I believe in.
An exercise program was long overdue in my life. Having tried almost every style out there, I was always searching for one that involved dance and dance music. I have always believed that dance movements, postures and skills provide fantastic basics for strength, balance, poise and self-confidence. Being a shy type I was reluctant to get involved in a realm where others appeared so qualified. Di not only has a high level of skill in dance, she has a personality that makes her students feel valued, supported and good about themselves. I now feel an increased level of confidence and acceptance of self while recognizing that I, too, have very positive qualities. It’s really all about attitude – feeling good and looking great!
The road isn’t always easy --- we work hard!! However, we have tons of fun! The laughter and camaraderie within the group when we are trying to learn those dance steps is truly the best support anyone could get. I look forward to my weekly class on Sunday mornings and always come away feeling rejuvenated, energized and sexy!
Many Thanks, Di, for your commitment to the dance world, ongoing support to your students and great sense of humor that makes it all so much fun.
I've been taking Burlesquercise since the beginning!
I came across an advertisement for the class and decided to give it a whirl. I have been hooked ever since.
This class is just pure fun. The workout at the start of the class is a great way to start the morning. It is both challenging and fun at the same time and you feel great afterwards. But of course, my favorite part is the dance routine. The routines Di creates are just amazing. They really unleash the performer in you.
The best part is the confidence you gain. It is such an inspirational environment filled with a bunch of amazing women. There are always lots of laughs, especially when there is an appearance by Deva Dave.
I am really excited to be a part of The Little Vegas Dance Company and look forward to performing and spreading the word about Burlesquercise. After all, God wouldn't have given you Maracas, if he didn't want you to shake them!!
Cute Country Dancer turns into Sexy Burlesque Kitten!
I was introduced to dancing at a very young age. Just 4 years old is when I first took the giant stage in my pink tutu and leotard. Growing up, dancing in our household was our way of life. My two sisters, my mom and I have always been involved in dance in some form or another. It’s been ballet, cheerleading, tap, jazz and highland dance. My greatest achievement thus far has been gaining the title of World Champion at the United Country and Western Dance Council World Championships this past January in Orlando, Florida.
I have foolishly left the dance world in the past only to realize what makes me feel the best about myself is to dance. Dancing is a way to express your inner self and release the energy inside you. It’s a great way to stay in shape too – so I’ve realized after giving it up a few years ago. I had the unfortunate experience in gaining a few unnecessary pounds – never again!
Di’s class is full of energy and inspiration. I encourage those thinking of joining her class to take my advice and do it. You’ll gain confidence, energy and of course start noticing that sexy body you’ve always dreamed of.
The opportunity to join Di’s Little Vegas Show Company is something I’ve been looking forward to. Performing in front of an audience is what I thrive on the most. I love the thrill of it! Now I’ll be able to release my inner sex-kitten…just wait and see!
