When I think of bachelorette parties, I immediately smile and think of the inappropriate jokes and hilarious decorations followed by constant laughter as each woman in the bridal party thoroughly enjoys herself. It truly is a great time for all involved. Sometimes it’s hard to plan a party when your budget is tight so the traditional trip to Vegas is out. If you’re the maid of honor looking for a local place for everyone to have a fun and safe ladies night out, consider hosting a S.T.R.I.P. party!
What is a S.T.R.I.P. Party?
S.T.R.I.P. stands for Sexy ,Tantalizing, Rhythmic, Inner Beauty, Party! It is a way for you and your girlfriends to learn how to dance burlesque, feel beautiful, have a couple of cocktails, eat refreshments and enjoy a night of laughter! Below is a definition of what S.T.R.I.P. truly stands for.
S is for… Sexy
What do you think about when you hear the word “sexy”? Does that good-looking celebrity or supermodel pop into your head? Or perhaps “sexy’ is a little more vague. Maybe to you it’s a feeling or it’s how people view others rather than the way a person looks. With S.T.R.I.P. it is our goal to help every woman understand the term sexy in her own way. We give you the tools to feel comfortable in your body and the way it moves, no matter what size or shape you are.
If all you can do is hold your head up high and walk with confidence, you’ll be the sexiest person there is!
T is for… Tantalizing
The word is tantalizing in and of itself! It gives you a little thrill just saying the word, but what does “tantalizing” actually mean? Dictionary.com defines “tantalizing” as having or exhibiting something that provokes or arouses expectation, interest, or desire, especially that which remains unobtainable or beyond one’s reach. I like to call this the “It” factor and it’s the part of S.T.R.I.P. that makes the class a lot of fun! What woman doesn’t want to be considered tantalizing? We all want that little mystery that people recognize, but just can’t quite figure out. It’s not only great for burlesque, but it also proves to be beneficial in real life. If you can have someone say about you “That woman has it going on!” then we have succeeded with our second goal!
R is for… RHYTHMIC
S.T.R.I.P. is first and foremost a burlesque style dance class. Therefore, you will need to find some sort of rhythm if you haven’t already! Don’t worry though, because we help you find that rhythm! Finding the rhythm is really easy when we put on some great music and you let your body do what it does naturally. As women, we have hips and we know how to use them; they just need to be loosened up! Swaying to a beat is natural and easy and will be one of the first things you learn in the S.T.R.I.P. class.
Get ready to hit the dance floor after class because you won’t want to stop shaking your booty once you start!
I is for… Inner Beauty
I think this is the most important aspect of S.T.R.I.P. How many times have you looked in a mirror and judged yourself? How many times have you put yourself down because of your body shape or what your scale says? Maybe you aren’t at your ideal weight or you would love to get rid of those tiny little lines around your eyes, but those things aren’t you. You are an amazing woman who has a plethora of things to offer the world! Don’t let a little bit of extra weight or wrinkles or anything else keep you from sharing your awesomeness with the world. One of the great things about S.T.R.I.P. is the fact that every woman is welcome and each one is treated as the beautiful, sexy woman she is. We strive to help you find your inner-beauty and to embrace your body for what it is and where you are at now. As women, we are too hard on ourselves and each other. In the studio, negative talk is not allowed and everyone is expected to support each other. Let S.T.R.I.P. help you find your inner-beauty and help you gain self-confidence.
It’s definitely better than going to a therapist!
Last but not least… P is for Party!
