Hen Parties

fan dance hen partyA hen party to remember!

We teach burlesque hen party, showgirl hen party, can-can hen party and fan dance hen party classes nationwide. They’re a perfect way to give the bride-to-be a send-off to remember! Dance moves you’ll continue practising well into the night – check. Slinks and struts that will have the bride walking down the aisle a whole different way – you’ve got it. Our hen party dance class guarantees a great time for your group. We’ve been running burlesque hen party classes since 2007, so you’re in safe hands with us. Don’t just take our word for it. Pop over to our hen party testimonials to see what other hen party groups have said about us.

burlesque hen party EdinburghOur teachers are professionally dance trained and have years of performance experience. Some of them are burlesque dancers, some have been Parisian showgirls, some West End performers. One of them was a dancer in a naughty late-night London revue bar. And don’t ask about Gypsy’s career history! Anyway… All Academy instructors are friendly, approachable and brimming with personality. Knowledgeable and flexible, they’ll adapt the class to the requirements of your group. You’ll be led through your hen party dance class in a secure, fun environment.

All ages are welcome – there is no upper age limit for our classes. We just require that all participants are age 18 or over for our burlesque hen parties. If members of your group are under 18, our other dance party themes may be suitable for them: showgirl, can-can or fan dance. Our sister site, Charm School, has many other dance themes such as Grease, Roaring 20s Charleston, and 80s.

Don’t worry if your group is shy and retiring. Or if you’re dealing with a bride who doesn’t like to be the centre of attention. Our hen parties are suitable for blushing brides, ladylike mothers-in-law and your most outrageous pals alike. We ensure every member of the group feels relaxed and comfortable. Don’t worry, no solos, no performances, no nudity (well, not unless you want to…), just two hours of fun and laughter.

Our hen party dance classes last two hours and are suitable for groups of all sizes. We’ve taught every size of group from the smaller ‘bijou’ group of 3 or 4 to large groups of 30+.

Most of our hen party sessions are held on Saturdays between about 11am and 6pm inclusive. But we’re able to accommodate other days and times – just let us know your preferences when you get in touch. We’re more than happy to work round you!


We run our burlesque and cabaret hen parties across the UK. They’re always held in private, secure spaces that suit your group. Most classes are in function rooms of bars, clubs, or hotels in the city centre. This means your group can order drinks at the bar to take into class – not that you need Dutch courage 😉. We also use dance studios or gyms, many of which have mirrors. Just the thing for admiring your fabulous new poses! We can also send our instructor to you. Yes, you can dance in the comfort of your own home, hotel, country cottage or city centre apartment. Or pretty much any other hen party accommodation. We are however still waiting for our first class on a canal boat. If this is you, hire us! Oh, hire us anyway.

We have spent over a decade delivering hundreds of hen party dance classes from Aberdeen to Brighton to Cardiff. Let us make your hen party an unforgettable experience!

Not just for hen parties!

Birthday party? Works night out? Girls night in? We’d love to teach a burlesque or cabaret party for any or your special occasions. We’ve taught at 21st, 40th, 50th, 60th birthday parties (and we’d love to do a 70th or 80th). Get in touch if you have a special event coming up.

Charm School hen party dance classes

Charm School

Due to the success of our burlesque and cabaret hen party dance classes, we launched our sister site, Charm School in 2012. Here you can find a wider range of exciting dance parties. Favourites include the 80s hen party where you can relive moments from your favourite 80s dance films. Fame, Flashdance and Dirty Dancing all make an appearance! At our Roaring 20s Charleston party, you’ll learn the finer points of 1920s posing. That’s followed by a very British Charleston routine. The less said about your quick detour to a 1920s Broadway burlesque house the better. The class will finish with a high (or low?) kicking American Bugsy Malone-style group number. Lots of fun! Head over to Charm School to have a look. Or you can just contact us via this website (this one you’re on right now) if it’s easier, it all comes to Jane and Sarah anyway!
