Discover the secrets of burlesque at birthday show in Sheffield

Have your say

Sheffield burlesque show company Secrets of the Boudoir Burlesque will celebrate its seventh birthday with a special show on March 1.

The birthday extravaganza will be held at West Street Live in the city centre.

More than a dozen performers will take to the stage to showcase a style of performance art which incorporates a blend of satire, striptease and comedy.

A spokesman said: “Prepare to be dazzled and amazed as Showgirls emerge from giant clam shells, perform elegant fan-dances, play with fire and provide astonishing acrobatic pole performances.”

As well as running regular shows at The Leadmill and West St Live, founder Rachel Lightfoot also runs a burlesque school. The classes are designed to teach Burlesque and give attendees a sense of confidence.
