Fly to Florence

We will arrive in Florence on June 20th to be greeted by our hosts; the talented, warm and hilarious Viola Panik and Mr Punch.

Once we have settled into our accommodation we will dine at Enoteca de’ Macci. “Enoteca” literally means “wine repository” This beautiful restaurant only uses the finest homegrown Italian ingredients and will the perfect and most relaxing start to our trip.

On Friday 21st we will have brunch locally and then head to The Theatre to rehearse for our most enthusiastic Italian Audience. You will be performing alongside The White Circus students who will no doubt show us how to celebrate our success Italian style.

On Saturday 22nd we will don our best pin up outfits and see the sites of Florence.

With our photographer in tow to capture us in our best ‘Post-Show We Love Florence-Glow’. Rony Cadavid is a very talented photographer and you will not only go home with the most stunning momentos but a lovely reminder of your international showgirl status!!!

And just in case you didn’t know…

Art is what characterizes Florence. And there will be plenty of time to soak up the culture. The city centre itself, which is UNESCO heritage, is a living Renaissance museum, so you can have a delicious bite of art and history just by walking around and visiting the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, Piazza della Repubblica, Ponte Vecchio, Piazzale Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci and the Botticelli Venus and sooo much more!

On Sunday 23rd we leave the city for the magical Chianti region of the Tuscan countryside where we will indulge in tasting the local wines all served up with delicious olive oils and bread at Hotel Salvadonica.

On Monday the 24th, we will visit the White Circus School for a workshop with Viola Panik.

Inspired by the powerful feminine archetypes depicted in the art of Florence, Viola teach you beautiful poses and how to not only tell the story of your own character but channel the very Goddesses themselves.

And Finally

For our total viewing pleasure we will finish our trip by attending the famous annual parade of beautiful men!!! Well, actually it’s called Calcio Storico (a combination of football, rugby and wrestling) that takes place annually on Florence’s Feast Day for it’s patron Saint, St John the Baptist. Basically, imagine the film 300 meets Gladiator and you’ve got the picture. The much-celebrated event ends with a huge fireworks display. The perfect ending to a Showgirltastic trip
