BELLA DE JAC (QLD)
A curious wind blew when Bella de Jac sprung fully formed into the world, born on the icy winter streets of a tiny English village. Brainchild of her half Australian, half German inventor who, informed by a bachelor degree in Dance and Theatre had Bella touring the English scene of underground speakeasys, cabaret nights and weddings before you can say, “poppin’ pasties!”. Inspired by the burlesque queens of yesteryear, she specialises in old world glamour and a healthy dose of bump and grind.
Reigning Miss Burlesque Gold Coast and Miss Fantastic MBA, Bella has been knocking the knickers off audiences all over Australia, and fell in love with Melbourne when she performed at The Big Tease during the 2011 Australian Burlesque festival. A wisp of a memory from a golden age, Bella is here to entertain you...
