Proud Cabaret’s Flirty Dancer isn’t nearly as raunchy as their usual offering, but it has an incredible performance

SEXY, suave and shocking are what I associate with Proud Cabaret, but sadly she’s sparse on this show.

The latest production from the team at Proud Embankment is a more PG show called Flirty Dancer.

It roughly tells the story of Dirty Dancing, which is about a young girl (Baby) who falls in love with the resort’s evil dance teacher (Jonny Castle).

If you’re looking for a raunchy night out, I encourage you to keep looking.

The main characters on the evening I attended were played by sophomores Thomas Brackley and Emma Rose.

Being thrown into their respective roles at the last minute, they managed just fine.

Both are experienced dancers and I have seen them on previous Proud shows.

Unfortunately, the chemistry I would have expected between romantic leads wasn’t there – I have no doubt that probably wouldn’t have been the case had they had time to prepare.

While some of the cast integrated into the show are stunning, they don’t necessarily fit into the overall plot.

The Seifert Sisters are simply incredible aerial artists who demonstrate their ability to defy gravity with ease.

Intertwined, the almost identical looking sisters move seamlessly from trick to trick without missing a beat.

Acrobat Matt Smith, the venue’s resident rigger, also got the heart rate up.

He showed off his bulging biceps and strength by flexing back and forth on a tiny pedestal.

Matt appeared as a performer in the resort’s talent show, as did Jessicats, who performed the night’s daring show with her burlesque striptease.

Emily Winters shocked audiences with her incredible hair hanging act, which has to be even more painful than how beautiful it looks.

The best thing about the entire note was Aidan Saddler, who is so charismatic that he was able to convince me of almost anything. You appear as a resort owner.

From the hair-raising vocals to whipping the audience up with their remarks and jokes, they single-handedly maintained my faith in the show.

However, watching a half-naked clown perform his magic tricks wasn’t on my wish list, and I can’t say I was thrilled to see it.

My biggest criticism of the show was the number of cast members who wore visible underwear underneath the lingerie, as this is at odds with the cabaret aesthetic.

Some girls also showed the tops of their tights when wearing high-waisted leotards.

I hope that the next incarnation will again be the red-hot success that I love Proud Cabaret for.
