Hello Pink Kittens!
Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble, pole of chrome from where the zombies roam, creatures grotesque with a flash of burlesque…We here at the Pink Kitten coven have been brewing some devilishly delightful goodies for you! With brand spanking new classes (including Cheerleading and Can-Can), updates to our burlesque courses and our Halloween showcase, we’ve been terribly busy! No rest for the wicked eh? The Halloween Spooky Spectacular is a great way to witness the smorgasbord of goings on at Pink Kitten, we’d love for you to come on by!

This Halloween, expect to be tricked and treated at the Pink Kitten Dance School Spooky Spectacular – we know how to send that shiver down your spine in both fear and excitement! We will be thrilled to have you join us for an evening of gruesome entertainment involving the students at Pink Kitten with more zombies, freakery and hijinks than you can shake a dismembered limb at! We have a whole host of acts cooking up for you in our big pink cauldron including grotesque burlesque, petrifying pole-esque and pole dance, all sprinkled and seasoned with Thriller, Cheerleading and Can Can. You wouldn’t want to meet this lot down a dark alley… Or would you?
The show is October 22nd2011, doors creak open at 7:30pm, show starts at 8pm promptly, latecomers will be fed to our zombies (which may mean you miss the show). To join the dark side is only £5, tickets available in advance online HERE
Free/reduced entry is available to non-performers if you want to sign up and help out with the bar/door/shop. These are limited places so get in there quick! For more information about being a dark side minion and to snap up a place email Hannah
