The Chantilly Belles on the silver screen!

Yesterday The Chantilly Belles were filmed for the new summer exhibition coming soon to The Lowry!
The theme of the exhibition is dance and we are so made up to have been asked to get involved and promote burlesque as an art form!
As we have our own unique take on this subject it's always been important to us to show that there is much more to burlesque than just stripping.

The day began with film maker Hilary Easter Jones and her trusty camera man meeting us at my art studio in Islington Mill where some of the filming took place. After being interviewed we were filmed performing in the Mill's club space. The setting was industrial which gave it a look of shabby chic; and with the stage properlly lit and the smoke machine the finished product looked amazing, something like cabaret meets Dragons Den!
We cannot wait to see the film when it's on show, here's some details about the exhibition:
