Maybe it was a sudden realisation that I reached the land of Middlelife and I only have 50% of an average lifespan left. Turning 40 also coincided with the return back to the mundane and ordinary after spending an extraordinary year sailing the Adriatic and travelling around Europe.
The first thing I tried was Burlesque! I am pretty sure that in my previous life I was a “flapper” of the “Roaring Twenties”. Spectacle and glamour, almost theatrical style of dressing up and all that jazz! My friend and I did the Beginners Course followed by a performance night at Sugar Blue Burlesque Academy in Perth. We had it all – glitter, silk stockings and red lipstick! And most of all fun, a lot of it!
