Then you came to the right place you gorgeous creature!

Following the massive success of our Whistle Bait Babies Training Camp we would like to invite you to our next term of burlesque classes! Always fancied yourself as a bit of a wiggly, giggly chorus-line dame? Now’s your chance to learn some moves, meet some wonderful gals and have a helluva good time along the way!

Every Tuesday starting 4th May, ending on the 25th

Dance Resource Base, 35 Donegall Street, Belfast (near the John Hewitt)

£30 for the course of 4 classes

12 places available from 6pm-7.30pm with the possibility of a later class, depending on demand.

Following feedback from our training camp you will be happy to know classes have been extended to an hour and a half for more lolz per minute!  We will cover all the basics of moving, posing, peeling, teasing and revealing (so don’t worry if you’ve never done this before), then embark upon a brand new troupe routine taught across the four weeks and polished til it gleams like a big lovely diamond.

To reserve your place email whistlebaitbabies@live.co.uk with your full name and contact phone number. Places must be paid for in advance and your place will not be secured until payment is received.

Come along ladies! It’s the most fun you can have with your clothes on, or off for that matter!


We Ain’t No Desperate Housewives!

Do your own dishes mister – we got dancing to get done!

We’d like to thank each and every wonderful lady who popped along and made the 3 nights of our Valentine’s Workshops such utterly brilliant craic.  You all looked amazing (and special) in your pinnies. Congrats also to all those who braved the “big finish”! Well done!

We will soon be gettin stuck in to training camp to find more Babies for our troupe and it is COMPLETELY SOLD OUT so please stop harrassing me! Only kidding, drop me an email at whistlebaitbabies@live.co.uk and I’ll add you to our mailing list so you can get news on all our next run of classes and events.  Alternatively find us on facebook and twitter for ultimate LOLZ.

Ta ta for now!

Could you be the next Whistle Bait Baby?


Ladies of Northern Ireland!  We are recruiting! Not only are we recruiting, we are training new recruits with brand spanking new weekly classes starting 27th February!!

Since the inception of the Babies it has been our dream to perform with a troupe of like-minded girls, putting on wonderful shows and having marvellous adventures.

2010 is the year we make that happen.

We have met so many girls at our workshops and at our shows who have expressed such excitement and passion in learning about burlesque that we would like to present to you the opportunity to come and join us, whether to simply learn for yourself or to potentially become a Baby.

We will be running classes for 4 weeks for £7 per class/£20 for the course (to cover props, insurance, etc.) during which you will learn how to move, act and dance like a showgirl, culminating in a full burlesque troupe routine.

At the end of the four weeks, we will be looking for girls to join us. And also assessing whether to continue lessons for those who want to learn for exercise/fun/social reasons.

Email us now to register your interest: whistlebaitbabies@live.co.uk

We’re counting on you ladies…

There’ll be some new moves, new props and a specially choregraphed new routine which you can perform for your beloved (on the understanding of course that he buys you something sparkly/slinky/cakey) or for your doggy/kitty/bunny who will give you their undivided attention and be very, very impressed.

No experience required. All shapes, sizes and abilities welcome. Improved confidence, better posture and giggles galore guaranteed!

Hope to see y’all there!

Wiggling In A Winter Wonderland

We hope this little update finds you well and full of Christmas cheer/mulled wine.  We’ve just had a very busy couple of weeks preparing for and hosting the Christmas “Wiggling In A Winter Wonderland” Workshops.  We’d like to take this opportunity to say thanks to all the lively ladies who came along and worked so hard on the routine – you all looked smashing!  We’d also like to thank Miss Andrea McVeigh of the Community Telegraph and Sugahfix.com who came along to review the day. 

In the weeks and weeks you haven’t heard from us we were taking part in a special project for Children in Need.  A bunch of gals from the Civil Service contacted us to see if we would perform at a “Strictly Come Dancing” show they were hosting and indeed we did.  In addition to this we trained up the girls to take part in a special dominatrix-style routine which really wowed their colleagues! We imagine water cooler conversations will never be the same again….

Stay tuned for incoming workshop news!

Due to exceptional demand…

The Whistle Bait Babies are proud to announce…

It’s Tricky to Frock Around

Frock Around The Clock!

Babies to perform at Vintage Fair

Honey & myself will be whapping out some moves at Becky Moore’s “Frock Around The Clock” vintage fair on Sunday 13th September.  Routines-wise there’ll be an old favourite, a new old favourite and two brand spanking new pieces to make you smile while you peruse all the lovely retro bits and bobs at the many stalls. Clickety click for the website:

Frock Around The Clock

Now obviously we won’t be dancing all day. That would be silly. But we will be doing routines every so often so you’re bound to catch one whilst you’re there.  We’ll be flitting about being fabulous/looking for cake in between so do come and say hello and have a giggle with us.

Holiday Inn, 22 Ormeau Avenue

Tickets £5 on the door (£3.50 for students – ID required and free for under 16s)

Hope to see y’all there!


Derry Does Burlesque

In these shoes?

I don’t think so.

Phew well, the Derry masterclass was certainly everything we hoped for and so much more – talk about a whistle stop tour of all things burlesque!

25 lovely ladies showed up on the night, looking fabulous and ready to get wriggly.  And boy oh boy did they wriggle!

Girls, you were all great craic and we hope we can come see you again really soon.

In the mean time we’ll work on not looking like this in photos.

When one martini leads to another...

If you’re interested in having a burlesque party or taking part in one of our workshops, please contact us.

Lalalove you!


Don’t try this at home…

Friction burns. Blisters.

A Baby craves not these things.

Thanks for popping back to visit us on this the week that Pixie got carpet burn on her face whilst trying to struggle into her brand new corselette and Honey blew up a hot glue gun whilst covering herself in pleather.

We’re very sorry we haven’t updated for a while.  There’s also been a lot of work to do as we’re now on the final countdown to our big Derry masterclass on Saturday (6pm – 7.30pm)!  We’ve worked up a brand new routine to teach the girls which includes an interesting prop or two… If you haven’t signed up yet and would still like to come along we have about 5 spaces left.  Confirm your place by contacting us or read more about it by clicking below to go to the Facebook event.

Derry Workshop!

If you can’t make the class then fear not!  We will be heading out on the razzle afterwards, stopping off to perform a lovely dance in Pepe’s (Strand Road – http://www.pepesangels.com).  If you’re out and about come down and join us for a couple of martinis.

On Saturday 29th August we’re putting on the glitz and going to watch some seasoned burlesquers doing their thing at the Bedlam Ballroom in the Black Box.  Last time we saw Gypsy Charms she completely blew our seamed stockings off so we’re super duper excited.

So until next time, take care of yourselves aaaand each other.


Baby Fever Sweeps The Nation!

We interupt your interneting to bring you this important announcement!

Baby Fever rumoured to be more contagious than swine flu!

We do hope that this brand new blog finds you well and without any traces of the dreaded piggy virus.  In order to obliterate any nasty germs we have been investigating the antiseptic properties of alcohol, with experiments thus far featuring martini, port and the good old Russian stuff.

Results have been inconclusive and further studies must be carried out.

Last time we spoke you may remember we had danced at Cafe Vaudeville’s 4th Birthday.  Well, blonde bombshell Katrina of SugahFix.com did a wonderful review of the night, featuring a beautiful shot of us taken by the endlessly talented (and well-heeled might we add) Stephanie Williamson.  Clickety-click on the photo below to have a nosey.


August is jam-packed with party bookings and we just can’t wait to meet you girls.  We’ve been working up several different party routines and whether you’re look for something elegant to cheer up your pal or something downright naughty to send your hen friend off out of singledom with a bang, we’re sure we can sort you out!

And there’s gig news!  We will be performing a number of routines at vintage fair “Frock Around The Clock” on Sunday 13th September in the Holiday Inn on Ormeau Avenue.  Stay tuned for more info on what you can expect from both the Babies and organiser/vintage vixen Becky Moore (www.myspace.com/northernirelandvintage).

Finally before we go wee, wee, wee, wee all the way to the off-licence we would like to wish all the very best of luck to Clare Afshar of Vintage Rocks who this Saturday opens her very own retro hair salon in Belfast! For further information check her out here: http://www.myspace.com/vintagerocks69

Love you long time!

Are you sitting comfortably? Then we’ll begin…

Ladies & Gentlemen!

Welcome to the beautiful, brand new website of the Whistle Bait Babies!

As you join us on our big adventure we will do our very best to keep you abreast of all our news.  There will be shows!  There will be parties!  There will be new friends made! And hopefully there will be cake!! Mmmmm cake…


Along the way we hope to acquire an arch-nemesis and perhaps some new shoes – just to keep things exciting.

So what have we been up to of late?  As well as touring with the Polercise show “Ame du Pole” across Belfast, Dundalk and Derry, a lovely party-organising lady called Angela Warren and her pals at Cafe Vaudeville hired us to dance at their 4th birthday party which was fabulous. A top bird called Gemma Garrett gave us a write-up in the Sunday Life Showbiz pages shortly afterwards and our mummies were delighted and bought many copies.


Bookings have been coming in thick and fast from little birdies wanting to learn our art and we’ve been the hostesses with the mostess, teaching hens and birthday girls how to party like pin-ups.  So great has been the demand that we are undertaking a roadtrip to Derry where on the 22nd August we will be holding a Burlesque Masterclass.  If you’re interested in coming along or would like to party with the Babies, contact us.

It’s hard to believe we weren’t doing this last year – our diary is starting to rival Paris Hilton’s (maybe our bank accounts will catch up with her’s at some point too).  We’d like to say thanks to Scotty Edgar (deadonmusic web designery person and indie muppet), Nykkol Philips (delicious brandisher of Illamasqua goods), Steven Quinn (snapper of snaps and air-brusher of bakes) and El Fegan (all round hottie and Polercise goddess) for helping us well on our way.

That’s all for now dreamboats!
