“It’s been 10 years since I took my first burlesque class. As that thought occurred to me it was like “I need a full Luscious Line Up to celebrate.” I’ve put together a line up of ex – students who are still performing, Trixi Tassels cos she’s awesome and I love teaching with her and of course Admiral John as he’s been there since the beginning. One of my students has requested I perform a certain act. I’ll let the photo be the clue …”
We decided to ask our performers a question from why they took the Luscious burlesque course to why they love burlesque and performing at Luscious Cabaret …

A: “I’ve found something that I truly love doing, I’ve gained an immense self confidence, everyone is incredibly supportive and lovely.”
When Stormina Teacup walked into the Luscious Classroom we knew we had one special lady joining the luscious family. It would be rude not to ask her to take part in the ultimate Luscious Line Up.
Q: Not only did you do the course twice but you’ve kept coming back to perform, stage manage and even done a bit of Luscious social media. What do you enjoy most about “All Things Luscious”
A: “Being part of the Luscious family is huge! This motley
bunch have taught me everything I know, have supported me creatively, emotionally and after a night out, physically.”
When this lady struts you know she is doing it on purpose. So when LLL wanted to create a duet which incorporated sexiness and LLL’s silliness Donna was the person to ask. Which is why we asked her …
Q: What have you enjoyed the most about working with Little Lady Luscious?
Another partner in crime, this time teaching crime. Trixi and Luscious teamed up last year and have taken the Luscious Burlesque Course to the next level. So we had to ask …
Q: Why do you love burlesque?
A: “I’ve always been a creative person since I was a child when I enjoyed being on stage with my acting or dancing performances. My mother inspired in me my love of sewing and costuming and I used to have a small business making bespoke corsets in Australia. So I guess what I love the most about burlesque is that it wraps up all of my creative passions in one outlet and allows such a broad range of expression from the purely cheesecake through to raunchy sex-siren, from comedy and satire to deeply political. And the most excellent women and men that we meet through this art-form is definitely key too.”
After seeing a show this fellow had already joined the Luscious family before taking the Luscious Burlesque Course. So we had to ask …
Q: Why did you decide to take the Luscious Burlesque Course?
A: “I had a relentlessly sexy vixen trapped inside me, just bursting to get out. After going to a Luscious Cabaret, I knew Emily had the skill and insight to see my inner sultry minx and coax him out with bumps, grinds, and glove peels.”
If you’ve ever been to the Luscious Burlesque Night you would of sung along with Admiral John, he can get even the most unresponsive Londoner singing along to a sea shanty. Trust us, we once witnessed him getting a tube full of Londoners singing! So why does he love the Luscious Stage so much?
A: “Everyone joining in and singing sea shanties they have never heard before! It’s all about audience participation!”
One of our very first Luscious gents. Himself and Harvey H Hendricks were the first boylesque class Little Lady Luscious ever taught. We think a few drinks and Little Lady Luscious’ signature “I’m going to hold you to that” may have something to do with Vince taking the Luscious Burlesque Course all those years ago …
Q: Why did you decide to do the Luscious Burlesque Course?
A: “I decided to do the course because I’d had quite a few gin and tonics, and it seemed like a good idea at the time. Unusually, it turned out to still be a good idea once I was sober.”
Now this lady after doing the luscious burlesque course has gone on to entertain across London and beyond with her classic and comedic burlesque style. We love having her back so we had to ask …
Q: You’ve performed at Luscious Cabaret a few times now from beginner to a seasoned pro what do you love about the Luscious Cabaret atmosphere?
