On September 15th 2017 Frankly Desire recommended the Luscious Burlesque Course to “Everyone” below is the original blog sharing all of the fun …
The Luscious Burlesque course has been going for longer than Little Lady Luscious cares to admit to, but she is always pleasantly surprised by the diversity of the students and the acts that they create. So whether you are a seasoned professional dancer, an enthusiastic cabaret lover, a complete beginner with no idea of what burlesque is (!), or a total lay person who would like to develop their confidence through a fun and low pressure dance class – this course is probably for you. Today we meet incomparable Frankly Desire!

Why did you decide to do the Luscious Burlesque course?

Burlesque is something that always was in the back of my mind and I never had the dare to do, that is why when my friend Momo said she was joining the course I quickly jumped in!

 Describe the course in 3 words.
 Fun, fun, fun… for real!
What did you learn from doing the course?
 There is more in burlesque than taking clothes off and to enjoy and love my body as it is.
Well… lets say I am more cheeky now than before…
What was the best thing about it?
Apart from the amazing Emily that helped us every step of the way, the people I met during the course is the best thing, being all of us from different backgrounds is an amazing experience to learn and discover burlesque through someonelse’s eyes.
Tell us about the first time you performed. How did you feel?
I felt like a turkey the day before thanksgiving! But thanks to everyone there, the feeling ended up being like an astronaut watching down to earth. Unbelievable amazing!!!!!!
Have you performed since the luscious debut show?
I have performed with some friends in a show but it was not really burlesque, although I was taking my clothes off. Being on the course helped me a lot for that performance as I was feeling more confident with myself and I think that translated on my performance.
Who would you recommend the course to?
 Everybody!!
Do you use any of the skills you learned in every day life?
Well… lets say I am more cheeky now than before…

Aubrey Jean at Luscious Cabaret Friday 5th July
How long have you been performing and what inspired you to get started? 
I have been performing in am-dram since the age of four. I moved to London to go to dance school and then on to drama school and live amongst the excitement and buzz and artistic world of the city and to pursue a performing career. I was inspired to perform because I was quite a shy introverted chap growing up and this was a way of expressing myself and getting myself out there. Once on stage I caught the acting bug and now I can’t stop! In terms of what inspired me to do drag I love Drag Race, and watched it from season 1. I guess it kind of gave me permission and I saw how fun it could be, and it reminded me of my four year old self who’d dress up like Geri Halliwell and dance on the coffee table for my Grandma whilst she did her crossword in the paper. I’d suppressed him a little and it’s time he came out and made a comeback as something fabulous – voila! Aubrey Jean was born! Performing in Netflix’s ‘The Alienist’ last year as a boy prostitute in feminine clothing also made me think if I can do it on screen the next step is to get on stage and REALLY do it – so I did! With The Art of Drag course. Do it! Best course ever!
What do you love most about performing?
Making people laugh and smile. Best feeling ever. The feeling of being accepted too, that people are genuinely enjoying your performance and interested in your funny little sketch and what you have to say, and the enjoyment you feel in entertaining people and bringing them some joy and happiness. The uplifting buzz it gives you when you’re out there on stage and you catch the sparkle in people’s eyes from their smiling faces and you know you’re on the ice and the audience are right there with you going along for the ride! ‘ONCE MORE UNTO THE BREACH DEAR FRIENDS!’

Aubrey Jean is the worlds first Vegan Drag Superstar! With a passion for the eggplant and saving the environment one humpback whale at a time

Who inspires you as a performer?
Madonna. I know some people aren’t keen but I love her staying power, she’s intelligent, she’s artistic, her finger is on the pulse. She’s fearless, I love her ‘you say I can’t do it but I’ll do it anyway and succeed’ attitude. And she does. Hyacinth Bucket because she reminds me of my Grandma. My Grandma. Violet Chacki – her aesthetic and her level of drag and insane beauty. Pina Bausch – Tanztheater Wuppertal, Shangela, Courtney Act, The Spice Girls, Lady Gaga, Bette Midler in Hocus Pocus, Meryl Streep as Madeleine Ashton in Death Becomes Her.

What has been your most memorable moment on stage? 
Probably dancing on a table in a brothel in nothing but ostrich feathers in front of Luke Evans. That was pretty memorable. And it’s when I thought to myself I want to seriously do Drag.
We can’t wait to welcome you to the Luscious Cabaret stage without giving too much away can you tell us a little bit about your act?

I’ve performed in drag on the Luscious Cabaret stage, the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, Comedy Pub and Two Brewers. However, I was fully dressed at the end of those performances. Overdressed even.
