We need mirrors

I have the room, I have fab students, but I am missing mirrors to make it all work!

Royal Leamington Spa Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Finding a dance studio with mirrors is not easy. Yes, there are many in Leamington Spa but they are fully booked. Over the last few years, I have been teaching in a room that allow us to do what we love most: Dance The students come to do something they never thought they could do: show their curves and actually enjoy it. I've been many years without mirrors, so yes, I could carry on without them, but in order to teach as best as I can, mirrors are required. The space I rent cannot accommodate mirrors on the walls so it needs to be portable mirrors which aren't cheap unfortunately.

What we'll deliver:

  • Dance floor
  • Mirrors for the room
  • Increase empowerment classes

Why it's a great idea:

BODY POSITIVISM Through the years, I've helped women rediscover their body. Not only the classes are a great way to socialise and meet new people, it is also a fantastic way to be healthy and get a chance to love our body again. LOVED BY ITS TOWN Loved by its town, Belles Burlesque has performed 3 times for the Leamington Spa Christmas Light Switch On and once for Warwick Christmas Light Switch On

Steps to get it done:

  • Dance floor
  • Mirrors

TESTIMONIALS "BB has given me the confidence to step out of my comfort zone so I can be confident in everything I do. The teachers do a great job at portraying what a positive confident woman can achieve if they are not blinded by society and its perfect image.." - Julie "In the few months I have been doing burlesque, it has made me take a good look at my own self image and the way I was perceived giving me a confidence and understanding I did not have before." - Marie "I love the way I am empowered after every class and how I now strut around the supermarket with my head held high" - Eve Belles Burlesque is a gem in a small town. Not only unique to its kind but makes my Monday feel empowered, sexy and fun!" - Natalie "Body positivity / confidence is really important to me & BB gives me a fun, creative way to show that you shouldn't let your weight stop you from doing anything, you should always embrace and be proud of your body." - Shannon
