Hello everyone and let me introduce myself, my name is Mimi Vin Rouge, the creator and director of Starlesque U.K.
Our classes are built on a foundation of love, friendship, promoting confidence and finding your fabulous! Everyone has it, sometimes it needs a little nudge in the right direction……I am passionate about all things Burlesque, Cabaret, Musical Theatre and basically anything that sparkles!
My personal journey suffering with low self esteem, lacking in confidence and being diagnosed with a long term health condition has been the inspiration for me to help others by launching Starlesque U.K dance classes and to offer an inclusive class for everyone, so it doesn’t matter what shape, size or age you are, we are here to welcome you with open arms. Our routines are choreographed to suit everyone!
I have been dancing on the Isle of Wight since March 2018, and teaching since April 2019, I started teaching with Starlesque this year. Like many women I have struggled with confidence and battled with a negative body image, but since dancing, this mindset has completely changed. I decided that I wanted to share this amazing confidence with other ladies who like me, had also been struggling with the way they looked at themselves, so I started teaching these fantastic classes. Starlesque classes give women a chance to build confidence and change the way they see themselves. I've since so many positive differences in some of my dancers already, and I'm looking forward to influence more. I hope to meet you soon.

Hello, my name is Jade aka Mischief Managed. I have always had a passion for dance since I was a child and even more now as an adult. I have been dancing for the last 3 and a half years, but in the last year have become an instructor. I used to be you, so i have had those anxieties when it comes to walking in those doors for the 1st time, I lacked confidence and didn't like how I looked. But it wasn't long and I realised everyone else felt the same way as me! Now I love my body! Having the background of attending classes as a dancer to now being an instructor gives me the opportunity to support you and encourage you to be the best version of yourself. Hope to see you in class soon!

Hi, my name is Laura aka La La Licorne. As a wife, mum of 3 gorgeous boys, a photographer, and a love for adventures, there's never a dull moment in my life. Specialising in body confidence photography I'm passionate about empowering women, helping them to see themselves in a different light, loving the skin they're in.
After experiencing my first burlesque show 3 years ago, photographing beautiful women express who they are, I knew I had to give it a go. Starlesque has fast become a key part of my life, giving me time to be me, make wonderful new friends, and fulfill a lifelong wish to dance. I'm immensely proud to be an instructor in Ryde, having the opportunity to teach other ladies is a dream come true. Watching people laugh, smile, dance and grow in confidence is magical, I aim to give everyone the chance to get their sass on.
