Adelaide Everheart is a force to be reckoned with when she's holding a pair of feather fans, but her true talent lies in the genre that can only be described as "Nerdlesque". This delicious pairing of burlesque and nerd culture will find you face to face with the stars of video games, manga and cult film characters in not much more than a g-string and a pair of pasties.
After graduating from the Victorian College of Arts in 2007, Adelaide was soon drawn into the darkness, humour and freedom that is burlesque. Honing her skills as a teacher at Bottoms Up! Burlesque and Pole School, Adelaide has taught both neo and classic burlesque as well as chair and feather fan dancing.

In 2011 she co-founded Badass Productions, a company devoted to showcasing new and established talent in Vaudeville and variety. After producing more than 30 shows in less than two years, the Badass team became known as Melbourne’s "Brat Pack of Cabaret". In between playing boss-lady producer, Adelaide sings and dances weekly at cabaret and burlesque hotspots around Melbourne, in particular delighting unsuspecting audiences with her passion for Star Wars and all things nerd.
Adelaide Everheart was a runner up in the 2011 Miss Burlesque Victoria and one of the featured artists of the Baby Bombshells competition in the Australian Burlesque Festival 2011. Since then, Adelaide has been forging her own style of comedy and dance around Melbourne’s burlesque hotspots including Red Bennies, Ladida and the Butterfly Club... One thing is for sure, the force is strong with this one...
