Burlesque by its recent reputation conjures up images of the 2010 feature film starring Christina Aguilera – and yes while cabaret is one part of this art form – there is just so much more on offer! Dating back to the 1800’s, burlesque encompasses a range of styles from theatrical performance to bawdy comedy and the infamous female striptease. VSassy Academy covers all aspects of Burlesque with a well rounded approach to both traditional and neo styles and will offer private tuition, group classes and various student performance opportunities across Brisbane.
VSassy is also the head of local troupe, The Velvet Kittens, who burst onto the scene in 2012 as a collection of her most accomplished students. Image by Cam Attree of Nylon Riot.
