Imagine taking a Zumba class in heels, and you’ve got an inkling of what it takes.
Cabaret trio The Globe Girls show the rest of us what’s involved in an intensive, hour-long masterclass. We are are encouraged to come dressed to the nines – sequins, teased hair, killer make-up, and heels are a must.
Wallflowers get given a pre-class alcoholic confidence boost.
Former Gladiators contestant Tornado starts the class off with warm-up squats and lunges, then the Globe Girls do a Walking 101 session, where we practice our strut.
The ensuing routine is all pelvic thrusts, ass slaps and “sex faces” (the face you make while you’re slapping your ass).
More entertaining than a spin class, this masterclass is guaranteed to get your legs in sculpted shape.
Afterwards, we are invited to watch The Globe Girls perform in the cabaret club downstairs over drinks and nibbles. Hey, what’s the point in burning off calories if you don’t get to fill them back up again?
Cost: £25 for a class and drink; £55 with a show and a meal.
