This amazing event shines a spotlight on new talent and semi-established solo artists keen to refine their skills and advance their performer profile.

Solo performers from all backgrounds will compete in this open level contest, where contestants enter for their chance to win the Burlesque Excellence Award, Mentorship and Sponsored Prizes.

The Apprentease aims to strengthen the wonderful burlesque community through education, celebration, and industry support.

The Apprentease ACT is run by State Producer, Jazida, and is part of the Australia wide compeition founded by A'dora Derriere and Sugar Duchess

Jazida has become recognised as one of Australia’s premiere burlesque performers, having been accepted to perform at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas in 2018 and virtually in 2020, chosen as the representative Australian Headliner for the Perth International Burlesque Festival in 2019, selected as a Featured Artist for the Australian Burlesque Festival 2019, and selected as teacher on the Australian Burlesque Cruise 2020!

As well as being a performer, Jazida works to elevate alternate performing arts and support the industry by producing shows through Jazida Productions and running classes through Flazéda, managing performance troupes (particularly Jazida’s Fabulous Fan Dancers) and also run workshops across Australia. In 2020 Jazida Productions won the Canberra Local Business Awards for Outstanding Performing Arts and two years running was voted in the top 10 of people who have made the biggest contribution to the Australian Burlesque Scene at The Busties (the Australian Burlesque Industry Awards)
