Every year sees trends appear in hen parties. Last year there was quad biking, baking master classes and glamping, but what has been popular in 2014 so far?
Life Drawing Sessions
A hen party is a bride-to-be’s last night of freedom as a single lady and therefore there is always a saucy element to the event. For those who are not fond of gyrating strippers or willy straws, a classy activity is to go to a life drawing session instead.
You can have your own private class and you don’t have to be a great artist to take part. It’s the effort that counts! Just make sure to specify you want a male model.
Dirty Dancing Class
No, we don’t mean learning how to dance suggestively, it’s the film! Dirty Dancing is a romantic, cult classic that most women dream of, especially dancing with a hunk like Patrick Swayze. These hen classes are ladies only though, so you may have to all chip in and help out with that final lift!
Spend around 2 hours with a group of your best friends and a choreographer, learning to strut your stuff to famous tunes from the iconic film. And remember – “nobody puts Baby in the corner”, so get out there and have the time of your life!

Pole dancing has long been seen as taboo, but in recent years has been recognised as a great way of keeping fit. A pole dancing class with your hens is a right giggle, and you’re sure to lose all your inhibitions a few minutes in!
Learn how to swing around the pole in a sultry manor and attempt some acrobatic tricks, while listening to the latest pop hits. Advanced choreographers will help you bring out your sexy side and you could even show your new husband the skills you have learnt, while on your honeymoon.
Similarly to pole dancing, burlesque classes are all about learning how to become confident with your body and to move in a way that shows it off to its best ability. You’ll end up leaving, feeling like you are the next Dita von Teese.
An average 2 hour workshop will encompass the basic movements and tantalising tricks, to get the attention of your audience. Expect plenty of props from these classes, like feather boas, fans, as well as plenty of glitter and gloves.
If the hen likes to strike a pose, then this may be the perfect hen activity.
After all these dancing hen do activities, you are bound to be worn out, so book a room at the Dragon Hotel to rest up before a big night out on Wind Street. And the bride-to-be can have a massage too!
