A nude life-drawing class will certainly get the girls in the mood! Whether they're bona fide amateur artists, or simply enjoy gazing at gorgeous guys, our hour-long tutor-led sessions will bring your hens' artistic passions to the fore, that's for sure! The professional teacher will give everyone the low-down on how to sketch a hunky man, and nail those taut abs, glistening muscles and smouldering eyes – and you can take your masterpiece home with you at the end of class to hang on the bedroom wall, if you like. The models are all relaxed and experienced, and will even give you their thoughts on your artwork at the end of the session. This is the perfect way to have a bit of naughty fun while keeping things classy.
You want to celebrate with the bride-to-be at a party where everyone has fun and feels fabulous. So how about sharing a group salsa dance experience? Salsa is sexy, vibrant and passionate and one of the easiest social dances. In your two-hour class your professional dance instructor will have you all up and confidently working that sexy Latin vibe whether you’re new to the dance or have experienced its pleasures before. You’ll begin with the basic steps to get you all moving and in no time you’ll be hot to trot, adding in some holds and turns before pairing up for an exciting routine. It’s best to wear clothes you can move in, flowing clothes accentuate the beauty of your moves, and dancing shoes that are not too slippy or grippy to help with your turns.
