Jacqueline grew up 100 miles east of the middle of nowhere in a hot, dusty town where she danced away the boredom at the local church-turned-ballet-school. Soon after her 18th birthday she moved to the big smoke of Brisbane city to pursue a professional dance career, however after discovering the sensual and seductive art of tease, she decided to cast off her small town sensibilities and immerse herself in the racy and risqué world of burlesque. Since she debuted her first act in 2010 wearing pointe shoes, feather fans and not much else, Jacqueline has been using her formal dance training to create burlesque acts that captivate and stimulate the imaginations of audiences near and far.
A modern muse, Jacqueline is extensively trained in dance and is a qualified dance teacher. Her performance skills include many disciplines from feather fan dancing and fire eating to strip tease and sword balance. Her ability to transcend her choreography with creativity and seduction is the magic which transforms a dancer into an burlesque artist.
