    Ferrero Rochelle & Rosie Verbose are joined by professional dancer & burlesque artiste, Trixie Kixx! Trixie is a powerhouse queer woman with a passion for body confidence centred around how movement makes us feel, not what we look like. She regularly performs with House of Burlesque and teaches lessons in London and online. She's also a Queen Crystaller (read, the gateway drug for Rosie Verbose's stoning obsession, as discussed with Sammy Sparkles!). Join us as we chat about burlesque, practising body positivity/ body neutrality as a dancer, and more.

    CW: discussion of weight & body image throughout

    Keep up to date with Trixie on Instagram: @trixiekixx, and follow her work with House of Burlesque & Off The Rails Studios while you're at it! Trixie teaches a class every Tuesday at 8:10pm online and in the studio at Off The Rails (@offtherails.studio), open to all women.

    This week, Ferrero Rochelle and Rosie Verbose are joined by multi-award-winning burlesque dancer and PhD student, Sammy Sparkles! This stunning performer joins us all the way from Perth, Australia, by the magic of the Interwebs to tell us tales of The Other Side, where lockdowns are scarce and Fringe Festivals are feasible... Sammy is currently pursuing a PhD in clinical neuropsychology alongside producing and performing as part of queer-femme burlesque troupe, Burlezque. What a babe.

    Head to our Instagram to see what happened when we met her gorgeous puppy, Yoshi!

    Find Sammy on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.
