Local dance studio Burlesque Lamour will host the inaugural White Lies fundraising dinner and show to support local charity SunnyKids, and while a fun night is assured, there will be a serious message behind each performer.
The Warana based studio has over 350 female members who range in age, size and ability and all share the same message, which is to feel empowered, confident and sexy.
Dance Studio owner and event organiser Jordyn Clancy said the studio’s top 25 dancers are as talented as they are beautiful and these ladies will be performing on the night along with some male dancers who have recently joined the program.
“It’s going to be a great night with a superb menu and our hilarious host MC Vixen will ensure it’s going to be memorable by incorporating lots of laughs and audience participation games.”
However Jordyn said the message on the night is one of empowerment.
“Not every dancer is confident enough to get on stage and every dancer has a story and sadly some of our dancers have been affected by domestic violence . It’s for this reason we have chosen local charity SunnyKids to be the beneficiaries of all profits from the night.
“One dancer in particular will be standing tall for fellow DV victims and will tell her story of fleeing a violent home with her young children. Together they spent over seven months in a refuge so she knows first-hand the amazing work SunnyKids do in our community.
“It’s a poignant story and one which needs to be told as both men and women can be victims of domestic violence. The most important message of all is for everyone to be kind to one another and encourage and support each other,” Jordyn added.
The event will be held on Saturday 16th October from 6pm at Venue 114. Tickets are just $99 each and include a two course dinner and show. To book your ticket visit www.burlesquelamour.com.au
