“I recommend Sapphira’s Showgirls for a hen’s party because it is the most fun you can have for a real girls night out. Everyone had so much fun and still taking about how fantastic it was. So a huge thank you from me, from the bride to be, bridesmaids and all the guests. You’re amazing!!” Gabriella

‘Lena, our Sapphira’s Showgirls teacher, was amazing and organized. She made the most of our time with her. We strutted into every venue for the rest of the night with confidence and sass. ‘ Jane
