TUTTI FRUTTI

In our homage to the 'golden age of film' this upbeat cabaret piece celebrates Hollywood's musical films in a camp and comic way. Featuring dancing/hula hoop girls, a giant banana chorus, a surprise reveal of Carmen Miranda and an audience conga line. Set to Harry Belafonte's 'Jump in the Line' and interspersed with some audio clips from Carmen Miranda's better known films, this routine has a strong Latin theme.

HOOPROBICS'

Mad Lizzie' Webb smashed onto our to screens with her crazy hair and pyjamas, the 'Green Goddess' Diana Moran gave us a good morning workout, Mr Motivator made it his mission to get Britain moving, and Jane Fonda, well, WOW!

 

Now it's the Sparklettes turn to try and motivate you and inspire you to get into your leotards and bust that fat and burn up those calories as we launch our version of the 80s TV aerobics routine! Can you keep up? WARNING - This is a fully interactive routine!

SPECTACULAR SPECTACULAR'

Madame Croquette and her troupe of dancing can-can girls bring a celebration of Freedom, Beauty, Truth and Love. 

Debuted in December 2018 this piece is inspired by the Moulin Rouge and includes the can-can, tango, a singing chandelier and the formidable Madamme Croquette Chablis!

(Available as a short individual cabaret routine or as part of a bigger show featuring guest circus performers and dancers.)

The costumes are an eclectic mix of modern and retro and include an insane amount of sparkle.

SUNDAY SERVICE'

I LOST MY HEART TO A SPARKLETTE TROUPER

This 70s disco classic blasts us into space with a routine set in homage to Hot Gossip and their track 'I lost my heart to a starship trooper). This complex routine features multi-level tricks and sections simultaneously smashed together in an epic space disco fantasy sci-fi performance.

"A mesmerising performance, wholly entertaining, kitsch, cheekiness delivered by graceful Sparklettes"

Audience Member

"Our Christmas Party nights were a tremendous success in December 2018, due in no small part, to the talent and professionalism of The Sparklettes [and friends]. Our guests were thoroughly entertained throughout the evenings and gave us fantastic feedback regarding the theme and entertainment. Ellie and Gareth were involved creatively with the planning from the very beginning and communicated regularly during the lead up to December.  They also posted regularly on Social Media throughout their rehearsals and after each performance, which was much appreciated."
