Australia's Mistress of Tease, Bella de Jac is a darkly elegant whisper from the nihilistic 1930s, insidious, and sensual. Dancing with grace, elegance and reckless abandon. Soaring, surging, daring you to abandon your senses and give in to lust, to love...and to life.

Her fiery determination and passion for the artform has seen her secure the incredible title of Miss Burlesque Australia 2015! Bella was recently voted in at number 31 in the 2015 21st Century Burlesque Top 50 & also voted Most Glamorous & People's Choice Victoria 2014 by her peers at the annual Australian Burlesque Industry Awards. Along with an impressive list of titles and performance credits, she also has a bachelor degree in Performance Studies and recent high profile shows include headlining tours with the Australian Burlesque Festival, New Zealand Burlesque Festival and the Perth International Burlesque Festival. Bella was also invited to perform at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender, and has taken her smouldering brand of tease to the stages of Las Vegas, New York & San Francisco.

She is also the Managing Director of theAustralian Burlesque Museum, dedicated to researching, preserving and honouring Australia's Burlesque history. Alongside Elena Gabrielle & Strawberry Siren she opened their premiere exhibition ICONS in 2015.

Described as both an exquisite creature and a powerful and captivating performer, Bella's penchant for pushing acceptable social boundaries is cleverly disguised by the grace and glamour of her shows.
Bella de Jac is one mistress you won't want to keep a secret...
