Introducing: The Sugar Showgirls!

It's been a long-time dream of mine to have a burlesque troupe: covered in sparkles, collaborating to create fun dance numbers and shows, and feel connected to my art form (which can be quite lonely at times). And now it has become a reality! I have tried a few times to get this to happen, but every time something wasn't quite right, cue 2022 rolling in with the continuing pandemic and general unease all round to give me the opportunity that just seemed to fall into place... Having quick chats with the wonderful Nellie Noble and Liberty Foxx, one day it all just clicked - really it was one day - we talked and agreed in about 30 seconds! I was wrapped to be working with these two as their brand of burlesque is fun and stunningly sparkly: my dreams come true! I wanted a troupe name that would suit all of our personalities, but also fit with my own performer brand (I toyed with 'Cream Team' but that gives connotations of a different kind). And so, The Sugar Showgirls was born!

We settled on a self-shoot time and place and it was so easy working with them leading up to and on the day - I knew I had made the right choice in people.

Next minute I'm binge watching old clips of Follies Bergere and Moulin Rouge on the treadmill at the gym (yes I know we're not quite there yet, but a girl can keep dreaming!) and getting lots of inspiration for how I want our shows to look and feel.

We now have our own Sugar Showgirls Instagram account where we have published a few of our self-shot piccies and some info about each of us. We are working on a show with just the 3 of us (cue quick changes and rhinetones sticking to sweat) and I couldn't be more excited! For now, I'll leave you with a little info on each of us - think of it like a mini interview, an insight into our performer personas. We can't wait to meet you!
