Hello ladies of Southport and surrounding areas I am Felicity Diamond a.k.a Stephanie the Southport Instructor.
Burlesque Chair Dance UK has had such an amazing impact on me mentally, emotionally and physically since having my twin daughters 10 months ago. Burlesque Chair Dance has even had a positive effect on my relationship with my Husband.
When I first started attending classes before I became an instructor, I was really shy. It was my husband who found the classes advertised on facebook, he knew I had always wanted to dance but never had the confidence. He told me I had to go to a class, I tried to make excuses for not going to the first class, but he lovingly kicked me out the door and off I went to Mimi Vin Rouges (Isle of wight Instructor) class.
Since having my twins 10 months ago I found becoming a mum really hard on my mental, physical and emotional well being. I felt like I lost my identity, that I was now just a mum, no longer a woman. I craved the old me, the woman who had friends, who danced for fun. I love being a mum more than anything and I would not change it for the world I just needed a bit of me time, away from 2 babies who just seemed to scream at me day and night. When I started back dancing, I felt so much happier and I even noticed a difference in my twins, it was as if they sensed I was less stressed and happier and they in turn became happier babies themselves. I felt like the old me again. I felt I became a better mum with having an hour sometimes even just half an hour of dancing to myself.
After having a c section dancing really helped my core muscles. Dancing has also helped rebuild my self confidence, so much so that I now embrace the stretch marks on my breasts from exclusively breastfeeding my twins which I still am 10 months in. I’ve embraced my mum tum with stretch marks and the cellulite on my bum and thighs that developed since having my daughters.
Every woman needs to practice self care and that is exactly what you get from Burlesque Chair Dance, you always leave class with a smile on your face, a spring in your step and feel like the sexy woman that you all are. I cannot wait to see you all at class. This class is for all you single ladies wanting to have fun, it’s for all of you busy mums who just want 5 minutes of peace and quiet to yourselves and for all of you ladies wanting to get fit, lose weight and build confidence.
You will find no judgement at these classes, just come and leave your worries at the door for an hour.
