I am to feeling blessed to be part of our forever growing burly family, its wonderful ...

Thank you Foo Foo. Lorrainne Castellano:


Dear Stephanie,

I have no words to express how I feel after watching you perform.

I know it is burlesque. But that is not what struck me - it is the confidence you instil in your performers. It is amazing. I learnt a lot of 'emotional' lessons in those three hours. To get your students to let go of their inhibitions is one of the hardest jobs in the world.....

I know your experiences have influenced you a lot - and the result is beautiful to watch.

It is obvious that a lot of hard work has gone into a performance like yesterday's. I seriously feel you should be giving 'motivational talks' to business schools and universities. On how to make the most of life - even when it doesn't go the way you want it to. At the end of the day, that is what counts - making the most of what you have......

Kind Regards



A big thank you from our filming crew, Roberto and Israel, who, though a bit shy at first, enjoyed the interpretation of each show. Some of the themes were brilliant. I loved the Bread of Heaven.

Mary Joseph.


I first walked into the hall a nervous wreck, tonight I walked in a performer with a lot more confidence and have you all to thank for it xxxx
