Cheesecake never looked so good

A weekend of fun and burlesque is coming to Invermere with a special training session and show by The Cheesecake Burlesque Revue on March 26 and 27.

The troupe will be coming to the area to put on a special Saturday training event at the Pynelogs Cultural Centre where up to 30 women will have the chance to learn about all the different aspects of burlesque.

The fundraiser for CV Arts is sponsered by Palliser Printing, Pixel Planet Designs, Fusion Wellness Spa, Birchwood Restaurant, Bud’s Bar, Lounge, Big Horn Meadows and The Valley Echo.

The weekend will give an experience like no other according to Debbie Fenton of On Top Productions who is helping with the promotion of the weekend. “The whole premise of this is to be a fundraiser for CV Arts. CV Arts came to me and asked if I could help with the promotion. When I took a look at it I thought it was an exciting for CV Arts for stretching their format of the entertainment they are bringing into the valley.” said Fenton

Fenton feels this will give local people the chance to try something that has never been seen before in the Columbia Valley. According to the group’s website “The Cheesecake Burlesque Revue keeps audiences coming back for more! More laughs, more tease and more body confidence.

With influences from cult classics like Priscilla Queen of the Desert to Broadway favourites like Guys and Dolls to imaginative roller coasters like their original Cheesecakes In Space, these girls know how to put on the modern day show stopper. The performers are as individual as the stars on the walk of fame – cute, geeky, rock’n’roll, classic, and elegant – audiences can’t help but have a favourite or two or three!”

“They are so professional and so amazing. These women have travelled to New York and Las Vegas and have stretched what they do to include workshops,” Fenton said.

The weekend will include a full day Saturday workshop where attendees will have the chance to go to Pynelogs where they will meet with the troupe and learn about burlesque.

“They will get their burlesque name, a full three hour choreography opportunity where you will learn the whole routine. Then the attendees will get to go in the upstairs of Pynelogs which will be decorated as a showgirls’ dressing room. All of the ladies will have their hair, makeup and costumes done to become their burlesque character,” she said.

Those who want to will have the chance to perform their routine for a select group of people at Pynelogs in the evening. Along with the workshop the women will also receive a ticket to The Cheesecake Burlesque Revue at Bud’s Bar on Sunday after a dinner with the troupe.

“I see this as a opportunity to connect with your significant other but also it is a chance for women to say it is ok to be sexy,” Fenton said.
