New Year, New Prospects and New Adventures 2020
Happy New Year! What a banging start to the roaring 20’s! We hope you celebrated in style and enjoyed every moment of saying goodbye to 2019 and hiya to 2020.
Setting goals & reflection is a very important part of the Blue House. We set various goals in 2019 and today is all about reflecting over the past year to see if they have been achieved.
Boy oh boy did we find out some home truths and FAILS…
What a year! so many adventures all over this crazy world and so many adventures in our North East England home!!!
This year, we thought we would analyse how we have met our goals rather than a quick fire tick box exercise. Get the kettle on, the gin glasses out and the chocolate ready… here we go…
Spotlight on 2019
Every year our first goal stays the same. Giving a safe space for performers to develop their skills on stage in front of a live audience is something we cherish. In 2019 we offered platform slots in various burlesque shows and took over Dr Sketchy’s Newcastle upon Tyne, so performers could have another performance outlet that is full of awesome. We are never ever changing this goal and it will remain firmly on our yearly list of goals in prime position.
We are so lucky to have such amazing students at House of Trixie Blue. We have provided our regular weekly classes in 2019, plus, we even had the opportunity to teach a weekly class at another dance school in the region. Not only this, we have extended our teaching back to the internet and have students all over the world, taught by the means of skype – such fun! We are simply proud of our students achievements and our door is always open to them if ever they need a welcoming home. Do check out our burlesque students/alumni Hall of Fame before you go, a celebration of our amazing students in a sparkly part of the internet.
Party time is the name of the game at House of Trixie Blue, so much so we recruited three wonderful Blinks Social Butterflies (What is Blinks?) all in the name of fun. We started Blinks with the vision of getting the whole of the North East burlesque community involved and further encourage autonomy within the group culture – we hope this continues into 2020.
Charity is always begins at home and in our House we supported several incredible charities this year. Our nominated charity was the Red Box Project (who are The Red Box Project?) and at the end of every term, students of HOTB brought in sanitary products for the project. We had donations in abundance… see, take a peek…
A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the project.
Our free resources is something we are fiercely passionate about. We want everyone to have access to burlesque, to enjoy burlesque and through free resources we can offer this to the wider community. Here are a few of the FREE resources we have on offer:
The Ultimate Guide to Burlesque – Showgirl Make up
AAAAAHHH WORKSHOPS BABY!!! We love a good workshop. From in house to guest instructors, we really went for it in 2019. Guess what, we are going for it again in 2020. Stay tuned folks.
We have been running a loyalty scheme for our students for many years. This year, we tried to get one up and running for our audiences… we failed!!! SO SORRY!!!! WE FAILED MISERABLY Bummer! We have put this goal back into the thinking pot to reconsider for future years.
True Blue has taken over the living room at House of Trixie Blue HQ. Ruby L’amour and Trixie Blue have created so many designs, sponsored many events with their creations and sparkled like they have never sparkled before. Thank you to all who has purchased some handmade accessories from us.
