Sequins, feather boas and a natty hat added to the glitz when dance instructor Dany Dalley led a burlesque workshop at Weston Village Hall.

Burlesque is undergoing a massive revival in the UK with fans hooked on stars such as Dita Von Teese as well as flocking to classes to learn some moves of their own.

Dany said: “The workshop was really good fun, We just learned some of the basic moves and some attitude acting.

“It’s all about attitude. 
“It’s not so much about dance technique, it’s a state of mind, you have a new persona and a new name, like Tootsie or Pussycat. It’s about making fun of what men think about women and how easily led they are.”

Burlesque first gained popularity in the UK in the late 18th Century.
