MISS LAUREN SKOPALOVA
Skopalova began her performance career as a rhythmic gymnast where she medalled nationally on many occasions. After an intense 12 years in gymnastics, Skopalova expanded her talents to something a little more daring, namely burlesque, cabaret and circus.
She soon found herself in Melbourne's most esteemed corporate events, charity balls and fashion shows including Fashion + Aid, Red Ball and the recent Loreal Melbourne Fashion Festival. As Skopalova burst into Melbourneʼs burlesque scene she brought a whole new skill set to the stage combining the rhythmic gymnastics apparatus with dance, circus and tasteful teese.
Regularly gracing the stage at Red Bennies, Skopalova has also featured at Bijou Cabaret, CirQue, Cristal Burlesque and the Australian Burlesque Festival. Whether she is balloon popping, ribbon twirling or hanging from the roof, Skopalova amazes audiences with her flexibility, athleticism and charm.
MISS HONEY B GOODE
Honey B. Goode, the hilarious heartbreaker, has forged a reputation as an original, charismatic and surprising performer. Utilising her training in modern and classical dance, physical theatre and the dramatic arts, this chameleon-like performer delights in pushing the boundaries of burlesque. With a nod to the past and a cheeky wink to the future, Honey takes the elements of classic burlesque and puts her own modern spin on them. With performances ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, this dazzling dame only asks that you expect the unexpected.
Her mix of classic burlesque and comedic tomfoolery has been featured at the Ruby Revue, Red Door Burlesque, Red Bennies, Madame Natalia’s Burlesque Underground, The Starlight Foundation’s Star Ball, and the Crimson Goat Cabaret Club. She is a resident artiste at Fitzroy’s Burlesque Bar, where she regularly leaves her audience crying with laughter. In 2010, she took part in the inaugural Australian Burlesque Festival, being crowned best newcomer in the Baby Bombshells competition. She was honoured to perform at the Festival again in 2011, handing over her crown to the next bright young thing.
This playful, versatile and entertaining performer is sure to leave you with a song in your heart, a twinkle in your eye, and a yearning for more of her Honey B. Goode-ness!
MISS JASPER JEWEL
From the start of her journey in 2009 Miss Jewel has covered much of Melbourne stages and will always endeavour to enlighten your night with some of that old fashioned hospitality and charm.
She is about as old school as they come and is in true Burly-style a character to watch.
While she caresses Melbourne’s stages with her elegance, a stitch of cheek and a glint in her eye she never leaves her audience unsatisfied as they are as much a part of her show and her cuban healed pantyhose.
From recruiting for the Navy to letting young naughty boys climb through her window Miss Jasper Jewel will not cease to entertain.
Through her vintage and hand made costumes to her alluring stage nature she is as natural in the spot light as a duck on water and will keep your eyes glued to her suspender belt.
