THE BOMBSHELL BURLESQUE ACADEMY
After two stellar years as Academy Director, Lila Luxx unveiled the newly preened and polished The Bombshell Burlesque Academy in 2014.
Established in 2010 by international performer La Viola Vixen as The Bombshell Burlesque and Beauty Academy, burlesque powerhouse Lila Luxx took the reins in May 2012.
After teaching, choreographing and performing in a number of performance disciplines including burlesque, contemporary dance, commercial dance, American style cheerleading, as well as studying Fine Arts in Acting and Arts Management, Lila dreamed of passing on her vast knowledge and experience to a new generation of burlesque bombshells. With a focus on vintage beauty, glamour, technique and presentation, The Bombshell Burlesque Academy is the realisation of this dream.
Classes at The Academy include Classic and Neo Burlesque, Beginner and Intermediate Courses, Vintage Styling and Professional Development. The Academy also offers tailored hens party packages, pinup makeovers and photoshoots, corporate entertainment and private tuition.
The Bombshell Burlesque Academy prides itself on its highly skilled tutors, with every one employed being a professional performer in their own right. Workshops held by visiting professionals are a regular occurrence.
The Academy also has a well known performance troupe – The Bombshells. The Bombshells are comprised of current students and tutors and provides performance opportunities at events in and around Brisbane. They’re known for their high energy performance, choreography and presentation and many have gone on to establish solo burlesque careers. The professional troupe is made up of the Bombshell Academy’s tutors and brings glamour and spice to corporate events.
At the end of each term, the students are invited to perform at The Bombshells Ball, a showcase featuring students, tutors and interstate guests. These events are held in a professional theatre and give the students a chance to strut their stuff and experience the energy of a live performance. These performances always sell out well in advance – our students are popular ladies and gents!
