Sapphira’s Showgirls may be amateur performers but they know how to Razzle Dazzle. See a range of props, costumes and ‘tease’ techniques as these Bombshells perform group class routines, solo debut performances plus much, much more!! Enjoy a night of comedy, thrills, spills.
Sing-a-long with Sapphira, a showgirl who has sung up a storm across Australia and also around the world in the British cities of London, Bath, Bristol, Cambridge. Not forgetting all around the USA with cities including San Francisco and Black Rock City, Nevada.
Like all art forms, Burlesque has many sides – from the glitz and high glamour to the dark shadowy underbelly. A creative force in Melbourne Burlesque since 2009, Madame Natalia transcends all facets of the Burlesque Spectrum – not only is she the resident Femme C of Burlesque Bar and ‘Cirque de Femmes’, she is also co-creator of the macabre ‘Atrocity’ and ‘The Burlesque Underground’.
A lady of many talents, and as many sides to her as a rubix cube, Jessabella spends her time in a myriad of ways.
If she's not entertaining with her unique brand of burlesque, she's teaching and running hen's nights...or singing for Sulphur Creek Project and Fiona Lee Maynard's Stiletto Survival Band...or modelling - strutting her stuff as a VAVAVroom Pin Up Girl.
Jessabella's entry into the world of entertaining came as an epiphany. Something along the lines of...."I. Must. Perform." Over and over again......
When that little voice inside her head spoke those golden words, (and fortunately it spoke much louder than all the other voices and won out!) the fearless vixen who only lived in the shadows emerged, and continues to do so at a rapid pace.
So hold onto your hats and get ready....PREPARE TO BE ENTERTAINED!!!!
VIRTUE VAN TASSLE
Virtue draws from her extensive performance and dance background to infuse precise technique into her stage persona. She is trained in burlesque, pole dance, fan dance, strip tease, tassel twirling, classical ballet, jazz and tap dance. This extensive list of styles provides her with all the ammunition she needs for her memorable acts.
Many of her acts include key burlesque attributes such as artful strip tease and the always popular feather fan dance.
Comedy is one of Virtue’s ummm…. virtues and with a wink of her eye and a playful gesture she will have you in fits of laughter.
Being flexible in more ways than one is a strong ethic that Virtue maintains. She will happily vary her costumes, acts or even create a specified theme to suite her clientele’s needs.
