MHWI did Burlesque!

On 22nd November, the lovely Doe Demure from Sky Tribe Dance Studios took members through a very enjoyable dance routine that encompassed Burlesque pin-up poses, walks and routines.   Members enthusiastically embraced the occasion by donning long gloves, feather boas and high heels.    Lots of fun and always tasteful!
