Burlesque! Burlesque! calling my name

hello my beautiful fellow goddesses….I am so excited to share with you that our the next Goddess Lounge which I will be hosting at Serendipity Books and Gifts on WEllington Street In Ottawa that I will have the pleasure of having a delicious conversation with Bella Barecatt,creative director of  the Ottawa Burlesque Playground.

at the goddess lounge we will get a little preview into the world of burlesque…perhaps this will inspire you to get in touch with your inner tigress and/or vixen..perhaps it will help you strengthen the connection of your that beautiful naughty one that is within you! All in fun of course!  the purpose of the evening is to gather with like minded women, to have some fun while broadening our horizons discovering/basking in our sensual selves!

the other day, a thought came to mind…a snapshot of a memory…I love that when spirit does so….it gently nudged me to remind me that a few years ago when I was in creative  workshop I was asked to list 10 possible careers, business’ I would love to do …money no object etc….it was a beautiful creative dream exercise…out of my mouth comes burlesque dancer! I honestly didn’t know at the time where that came from but it’s obvious to me now, that my infinite self was feeding my soul with some yummy inspiration. I laughed as did my husband. my girlfriend who was leading the workshop at that time, said I could so see you do that! I said really….oh and by the way, I didn’t even know what it meant….absolutely didn’t know…the workshop was before held the Burlesque movie that came out …oh clues….perhaps…

because of this little nugget of love by spirit, I so went to see the movie when it came to the big screen…I so love it…what did I love about it…well I love , love Christina Aguilera’s voice..so soulful…so pure…..what I love was that the women would get dressed up scantilly or one may say provocatively, to entice /entertain the audience…they would lip sync and dance these amazing dance routines ….i love that these women were able to get into Character…to tap into their sensual selves and have an absolute blast doing so…..it’s my understanding that we have a vibrant burlesque community here…so this evening at the Goddess lounge will be a perfect opportunity to experience it just a little! how exciting…..

oh yeah…and I am going to my first burlesque dancing class tonight at Alana’s dance studio here it Ottawa….a little scared but really excited…out of my comfort box I go….Yippee…
