It is taking place on Thursday, November 22, at the Hillview Community Centre at 7.30pm, under the tuition of burlesque teacher Jan Bridges.

The 33-year-old mum-of-three underwent a double mastectomy and reconstruction surgery and used the dance form to regain her body confidence.
She said: "I had an overwhelming positive experience and that gave me the idea that other women similar to me could be feeling the same way."
Shelley has previously put on a belly dancing event in aid of Skye, which raised nearly £300.
She was doing the event in aid of Skye, but generous lottery winners, Chris and Colin Weir have come up the cash to help the girl.
The money raised will now be split between her appeal and Leckhampton Court Hospice.
