Another Day, Another Burlesque DVD

I got another Burlesque DVD in the post today - Bombshell Betty's Introduction toBurlesquercise DVD.

According to Bombshell Betty's website the DVD includes:
Bump N Grind Warmup: Shimmy, shake and bump yourself into shape with this fun and sensual warmup based on the traditional burlesque bump and grind. This is a lighthearted and sexy warmup you'll want to do every day. Get your shimmy on and loosen up those tassel twirling muscles!

Pinup Floor Workout: These pinup-inspired toning exercises focus on toning your legs, hips and abdominals, building on the postures and moves learned in the Bump N Grind Warmup. The exercises are as easy or as difficult as you make them, so you can increase the difficulty as your strength increases, always moving at your own pace. One long time "Burlesquerciser" swears that these moves have done wonders for her sex life! See what they can do for you!

Burlesque Strut - Leg Work: Your strut provides the foundation for your entire burlesque stage presentation, so that's where we start off. With this segment, you will learn how to show off those legs to advantage! Learn the proper way to step to elongate your legs, show off your curves and look light on your feet. Confident, showgirl posture is emphasized while going through a series of easy-to-learn and elegant dance moves to embellish your sexy new walk. With moves like these, you'll have million dollar legs in no time!

Pinup Dance Moves: Learn Bombshell Betty's technique for creating your own authentic-looking retro pinup dance moves! Combined with your sexy new strut and your bump and grind dance moves, these easy to learn moves add drama and glamour to any act, whether on stage or in the privacy of your home. Be the living, breathing pinup queen you've always wanted to be!

The DVD is purely an instructional exercise video with a fun burlesque twist, it offers no background information to burlesque. Like 'Burlesque for Beginners' the picture and sound quality are not great. It is sometimes quite hard to hear what Betty is saying over the sound of the music. The DVD is great for someone that wants a fun alternative to normal 'boring' exercise videos but how effective an exercise routine this would actually be remains to be seen. On the plus side it offers a great alternative to someone like me who has always wanted to try burlesque but is to shy to take a class.

For all you budding burlesquers in the USA Bombshell Betty runs Burlesquercise classes. Details can be found here.

So get Burlesquercising today dear readers ... x
