    We are becoming a nation of strippers. Well, not the entire population. Despite all the strides women made in the last century, we are now teaching our women and little girls that this is ok. Forget your brains and ambition. It is your body that counts. Sad. I am all for physical fitness. Heck, get rid of the car and walk! But if men are not taught that this kind of exercise is ok, then why is it ok for women?

    You've missed the whole point JK, it's not about teaching little girls that it's your body that counts, it's about teaching women of all ages that their body is BEAUTIFUL - no matter what size or shape it is. We're inundated with media images of un-natural thinness, and Burlesque tries very hard to teach the public that beauty comes in many varieties.

    Case in point: i'm 41, a size 10, and I am proud of being a role model for younger girls to be confident.

    I teach burlesque here in the city with the Headline Honeys and you can ask any of our students and they will say all the same things about our classes that are written in this article. I have watched many women of all different shapes and sizes transform from shy or self conscious into confident, sexy, powerful women. We offer classes/workshops every month and you can find us on Facebook or come visit our booth in the craft/flea market in the Avalon Mall on Sunday evenings. Ladies you don't have to move to Calgary to find your inner diva, she's inside you and you can find her right here at home xo
