Do you want to have a hens night that is different form all others? The
norm is to all meet up, have some dinner & then go out to a club....Why not have a hens night to remember!

What better way is there to enjoy a night out with the gals then to play makeup & hair.... glamour style! You could even do this before you go out to play, but this way, you are all going to look amazing....1950's style! When you walk into a room those heads are definantly going to turn!

This is a great bonding session for your staff or clients, teaching them to work closely with other as well as the skills to achieve goals on their own. These sessions also give women good grooming techniques as appearance is very important in any business, Not only on a work level but also on a personal level which helps to build self esteem.

Dance school workshops
Do you teach swing, lindy hop, rock'n'roll or rockabilly? Wouldn't it be nice if your students not only danced the part & dressed the part but also knew how to do their hair & makeup? The answer is yes yes yes!!!

We at Boogie Bop Dames can come to your dance school & run a workshop for your students so that they can look & feel like the whole package!

The choice is yours as to which sort of workshop we run, we can run a "Forties in a flash" or a full glamour workshop.

We generally try to limit the number of gals in any one workshop to 20 which allows us to give each & everyone of them our personal attention.

Its important to us that when the workshop is finished the girls look fabulous,so that means hair & makeup done& everyone happy with how they look!

Other dance schools have arranged this workshop for their student before one of their school social dances so that the girls get a chance to strut their stuff!

Please don't hesitate to contact us to discuss further what you would like to offer your students.
