At BodiBlossom Burlesque, we believe that every step counts towards embracing your body and unleashing your inner beauty. Our burlesque dance classes, workshops, and hen parties are designed to not only teach you how to dance but also how to love your body. We are a dance community that encourages and supports you in every step of your journey towards self-love and empowerment.

BodiBlossom aims to help empower women by encouraging them to feel comfortable in their own bodies and learn to express themselves in ways they have never done before. Local Eastbourne lady, Kirsty Davies founded BodiBlossom Burlesque in 2021 and has spent several years raising money for some well deserved charities.

BodiBlossom has grown hugely since starting and now has 2 wonderful additional instructors, Vanessa and Charlotte, as well as our events co-ordinator Lauren who are all as passionate as Kirsty is in helping women feel confident and sexy in their own skin.

Beverley Spellman

Volunteer Show Administrator

Bev’s love of dancing started when she was only a little girl, every Saturday morning at her local ballroom dancing class


She also attended tap and ballet, but Latin American ballroom was her favourite


That all stopped once she started senior school but years later as an adult, after seeing an advert Kirsty posted on Facebook regarding Burlesque classes, she thought “why not” and here we are, the fire was once again re-ignited and after many workshops / classes and a show, is loving being part of the Burlesque family and journey


Bev is also a mum to three grown up kids and two wonderful grandsons
